Bay Area Hip Hop enthusiast and sportswriter Dale Tafoya will write the book inspired by "Too $hort", which will feature interviews with hundreds of his pattna's, close friends, bodyguards and family members. "Life Is Too $hort: The Resilient Life of Todd Shaw” will cover "Too $hort’s" legendary 25 year career and legacy in hip hop.
At the age of 18 in 1983 "Too $hort" dropped "Don’t Stop Rappin’". "$hort’s" 1987 cut, “Freaky Tales” is what put him on the map.
"Life Is Too Short: The Resilient Life of Todd Shaw" does not have a release date yet.
