Too Short

Rap/Hip Hop

Born in Los Angeles, but an Oakland resident by the age of 14, Too Short was arguably the first West Coast rap star, recording three albums on his own before he made his major-label debut with 1988's gold album, "Born to Mack." He's also one of the few musicians to have collaborated with both Tupac and Biggie at the heights of their careers. His most recent albums came out in 2012: one solo ("No Trespassing") and two collaborations with E-40 ("History: Mob Music" and History: Function Music").
