Shane Bunting (born October 21, 1972), better known by his stage name Madchild is a Canadian rapper. He is part of the Vancouver-based hip hop group Swollen Members. In 2009, he released a solo EP entitled The Madchild EP. In 2012, he released his first album, titled Dope Sick followed by Lawn Mower Man in 2013 and Silver Tongue Devil in 2015. In 1993, he was named a member of the legendary 'Rock Steady Crew'.
Bunting was born in Surrey, British Columbia, but was raised in North Vancouver and attended Carson Graham and Sutherland secondary schools. He moved to San Francisco when he was 20 years old, and returned to British Columbia in the mid-1990s. He now currently resides in West Hollywood, California.
In August 2011, he returned to his roots by taking part in a rap battle for King of the Dot, an Ontario, Canada-based battle league. He went up against Dirtbag Dan and won on a 3-2 decision. He was scheduled to return to King of the Dot in August 2012 to battle with the Australian rapper 360, however, the battle was postponed, as 360 was scheduled to receive ocular surgery at the time of the event. Madchild has said that he is still interested in doing the battle.

In early 2011, it was reported that Bunting was banned from entering the United States, due to alleged links to the Hells Angels Motorcycle Club. Bunting said that he was detained at an American airport for approximately eight hours before being told he could not enter the country, and had been working with a lawyer in San Diego, California, to rectify the situation. On July 11, 2013, it was announced via the Swollen Members Facebook page that Madchild was once again allowed to enter the United States.
