Hailing from the Bay, Too $hort is a West Coast legend. Now, the “Blow The Whistle” rapper returns to unleash his 20th studio album titled The Pimp Tape, via Dangerous Music/EMPIRE. The 20-track project features all-star appearances from Ty Dolla $ign, French Montana, Joyner Lucas, Jeremih, G-Eazy, The-Dream, and fellow Baydestrians E-40 and Mozzy.
The Pimp Tape marks real name Todd Shaw’s three decades in the rap game, solidifying his legacy while paying homage to the forefathers of hip-hop (Biggie, Tupac, Jay-Z, Jazze Pha, Jermaine Dupri, etc.). Coming up entirely independent, the Oakland native was the first from his city to receive a Platinum plaque with “Blow The Whistle,” which has now gone 6x Platinum and 4x Gold.
