Tonight: Too $hort at Casselman's
Often imitated but never duplicated, Too $hort (performing tonight with DJX, Shade Loc G, Hypnautic, King Tef, Johny Rocketz, 20:12, Nominee, Mya Rose, Spoke n Wordz, Playalitical and Felisa Latin Soul at Casselman's) has been making records for almost thirty years, helping to establish Oakland, California, as a reputable rap haven. Starting out making beats for others in the '80s, Too $hort went on to collaborate with the likes of Notorious B.I.G., Tupac Shakur, Lil Jon and Spice 1.
His smart alec flow has graced more than eighteen of his own albums, and the rapper is readying the release of The History Channel, a joint effort with E-40 due out this summer. This show is twenty-one and up, and tickets are $15-20. Doors open at 9 p.m., and the performances begin immediately.
