Who is the only rapper who has recorded with Tupac, Jay-Z, 50 Cent, Parliament, Notorious B.I.G. and Scarface? Who has one of the highest selling catalogs in pop music? Who is the only rapper who has successfully re-invented himself in four separate decades of hip hop? Yes, Too $hort.
But while he has ruled the street and pop charts, Too $hort is both praised and hated by those who decry his obscene lyrics and pimp stance. His life has also been filled with off-stage drama, as well. He was allegedly drunk behind the wheel of a truck when two people were killed. His beef with Oakland rappers The Luniz almost turned deadly. And his rep with the ladies has affected his 15-year relationship with girlfriend Monica Payne.
Now, fellow rap legends Snoop Dogg, Money B and L’il Jon are joined by friends and family as Too $hort guides ‘Unsung’ through his one-of-a-kind life and career.
