and Too $hort
06.17.2020 - By Give Them Lala ... with Randall
Too $hort drops by to talk about his days playing in his high school band, the unconventional way he learned the ropes of the music industry, how a conversation with a homeless man inspired his name, and recording with Biggie, Tupac, and Jay-Z. $hort also explains how he managed to stay neutral during the whole East Coast-West Coast rivalry, and the last conversation he had with Tupac just hours before Tupac was killed in Las Vegas. Plus, $hort speaks to his own experiences with the police and systemic racism growing up in Oakland, California, and how that inspired his work with the local community group, Youth Uprising.
