Too Short may be a half-foot shorter than Biggie Smalls and 2Pac — each of whom he collaborated with at the peak of their rivalry — but there’s nothing diminutive about either his stage presence or track record. That latter includes six straight platinum albums from his 1989 breakthrough Life Is … Too Short to 1996’s Gettin’ It, which prominently featured George Clinton’s Parliament Funkadelic on its title track. A dedicated fan of ‘70’s funk, Todd Anthony Shaw spent his formative years in Oakland, and would go on to play an integral role in the Bay Area’s hyphy scene alongside friends and collaborators E-40 and Mistah F.A.B. To this day, Too Short continues to be a much-in-demand feature artist, with recent appearances ranging from Snoop Dogg’s “Don’t Stop” to Lady Gaga’s “Jewels N’ Drugs.” Onstage, expect to hear cuts from his forthcoming album The Pimp Tape, which will feature guest vocals from E-40, T.I., Snoop Dogg and 2 Chainz, as well as perpetually crowd-pleasing signature songs from the surprisingly sincere “The Ghetto” to the profoundly profane “Ain’t Nothing Like Pimpin’.”
