Too Short is an Oakland MC from the 80s who brought pimping into the rap game. Not only does he produce, write his own rhymes, but he has been doing it for almost 30 years straight! Arguably every MC has been influenced on some level or another by “Short Dawg”. With career ups and downs, a couple years ago he was caught by TMZ taking local Oakland officers on a foot pursuit, but he’s also a platinum seller. Even if you’ve never bought a Too Short album you’ve definitely heard his influence and his unique way of saying “beyotch!” on popular tv shows, movies, and in various songs. Most recently Too Short has been appearing in reality tv shows (Couple’s Therapy, LA Hair) which has given his long lasting career even more life. Take time to explore Too Short’s 16 + album catalogue and get ready to learn something about macking and pimping and Oakland. The video attached is especially unique because Short describes his lengthy career in 2 short 16s on a club beat like only Too Short can. Honorable mention for the Gettin It album, Too Short’s short lived retirement project, and the CLASSIC Freaky Tales. ENJOY! BEYOTCH!
