Too Short Recalls Refusing To Listen To Kanye West's Beats Decades Ago


Too Short Recalls Refusing To Listen To Kanye West's Beats Decades Ago

There are thousands of "missed opportunity" stories in the entertainment industry, especially Hip Hop, and Too $hort recently shared one of his regrets. With a career that spans almost 40 years, Short Dog has often been approached by up-and-coming rappers or producers who are interested in collaborating with the Rap icon. Understandably, not everyone gets their wish, but during a recent sit down with VladTV, Too $hort revisited a memory when he opted to not work with a budding producer by the name of Kanye West many years ago.
“I remember Scarface called me. He was in New York, he was like, ‘I got the coldest motherf*ckin' producer.’ And you know what I told him? He was talking about Kanye West,” said Short. “You know what I told him? I was in Atlanta, I was like, ‘We got all the producers with me. I don’t need no new producers.’"

“And he was like, ‘I swear to God,' I don't remember the number and I don't want to disrespect Kanye, but I swear he said, 'He’s the coldest motherf*cker in the world out here in New York, he’s from Chicago.’ He told me his name, everything. He said, ‘$2,000 a beat... It’s the sh*t!’ And I was like, ‘Man, we got producers.'"
Short said that Scarface even sent him samples of the beats but he didn't even listen to them.
“I’ve done some dumb sh*t in my life, but that’s up there at the top of the list of dumb sh*t. Turning down young Kanye beats before the price went up," he added. "I'm a music guy, I live around music guys! We didn't need no f*ckin' beats, but damn, if I would’ve knew. I didn't have no damn psychic around me or a crystal ball. I didn’t know.”
