  • Too $hort, de son vrai nom Todd Anthony Shaw, né le à Los Angeles, en Californie, est un rappeur et producteur américain. Too Short est crédité comme l'un des pionniers du rap West Coast. Il collabore avec de nombreux rappeurs et chanteurs : Jay-Z, Lil' Kim, will.i.am, Ice Cube, Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Jagged Edge, Petey Pablo, DPG, N.O.R.E., Eazy-E, The Notorious B.I.G., Tupac Shakur, Diddy, George Clinton, Xzibit, Wiz Khalifa, E-40, Keith Sweat, Kid Cudi ou encore K-Ci & Jojo. Ses thèmes musicaux préférés sont les proxénètes (il se fait passer pour un vrai « pimp »), les prostituées (il invente avec Freddy B. le mot, souvent repris par les rappeurs, « biatch ! »), le récit de ses aventures sexuelles et les « beefs » avec d'autres rappeurs (The Luniz, Kurupt). Ses textes sont très crus, souvent obscènes envers les filles faciles et les prostituées, ce qui ne l'empêche pas de recourir à un certain humour et second degré dans ses morceaux (notamment sur sa petite taille).
