On the eve of the culture show’s return (post-Jian Ghomeshi controversy-induced hiatus), Q finally has a new host: London, Ont native Shad.

32 year-old Shad has heretofore best been known as a rapper with three critically acclaimed albums under his belt—and a Juno for Rap Recording of the Year. Along with a new host, the popular CBC show is changing up its format—more live music, less formality.

Will you be tuning in to the reboot in April?
