Last week, the legendary Too $hort released his 19,999 EP. The project comes right when the veteran is celebrating thirty years in the rap game. Few artists make it five years, let alone thirty, so this is something that is historic and certainly worth celebrating, as Too $hort managed to stay relevant during this period.
Although forgotten in such a long and historic career, there was a period of time when Too $hort even retired from the game. His retirement took place right when Jay-Z, the rapper best-known for retiring, got his first breakthrough in the game. The two rappers made some classic hits in the 1990s together, fitting that they’d both come out of retirement.
Too $hort recently talked to Big Boy over at Big Boy’s Neighborhood and Power 106. He discussed his TSA incident during the interview. But, with new music out, Too $hort came in and he spoke about the 19,999 project, which is currently available for purchase via iTunes.
