Todd Shaw, the rapper formerly known as Too $hort
, was once rumored to have been killed in a California earthquake in the 90′s and now he’s been killed again as the most recent victim of the dreaded online celebrity death hoax.
Shawt Dogg was killed off this morning via the social networking site Twitter, and just about everyone was calling my phone talmbout ‘we lost another one’.
The rumor spread all the way back to Short’s hometown of Oakland, where I heard people are actually walking around crying.
Well I’m happy to report that Too Short wants everyone to know that he’s still very much alive and issued a statement via the same source that killed him in the first place. Continue Reading…

Tha Doggfather held his private private birthday bash at Rolling Stone Lounge in Hollywood and he was treated to a performance by funk pioneer Bootsy Collins and a special birthday serenade by the legendary Chaka Khan.

Old school rapper Too $hort was arrested for battery last Thursday (July 15th) after he allegedly tried to beat up three bouncers in a Boise, Idaho nightclub.
The 44-year-old Atlanta transplant (real name: Todd Shaw) was arrested and charged with three counts of misdemeanor battery stemming from an incident at a club called the Knitting Factory.
Police we called to the Knitting Factory sometime after 11 p.m. that night after receiving reports of a fight. Club security said they had been physically assaulted by Too Short and an associate.
If witness reports are accurate, the rapper got pissed when club security forbid him from bringing women under the age of 21 into his dressing room. (It’s club policy.)
No on was seriously injured and Shaw was released after posting bail. He is scheduled to return to court in Boise on August 4th and if convicted, faces up to six months in jail and a $1,000 fine.
Question of the day: Isn’t Too Short too dayum OLD for this sh*t? [Sidebar: I'm so glad I didn't take his mom up on her offer...]
