Todd Anthony Shaw, better known by the stage name Too Short, is an American rapper, record producer, and actor. He is best known for his hit songs, such as “The Ghetto” and “Blow the Whistle”. Too Short is credited as being one of the pioneer rappers of West Coast hip hop. He first began recording in 1985, becoming one of Oakland’s better known underground emcees, before he signed a deal with Jive Records in 1987, releasing his mainstream debut album Born to Mack. He experienced his first widespread success with his 1989 follow-up album Life Is…Too Short, and remained one of the most popular rappers into the 1990s. His rap lyrics are primarily about pimping, drug use, surviving and promiscuity.

With millions of records sold, nationwide sold out shows, loved by both the streets and respected amongst his peers, without question E-40 continues to reign supreme. Empowering a familiar cliché that states, “If it’s not broke, don’t fix it” the Revenue Retrievin’ series continues and the most underrated rapper returns with two brand new albums entitled “Revenue Retrievin’ Graveyard Shift” and “Revenue Retrievin” Overtime Shift.” March 29, 2011, will mark the release of the 15th and 16th albums from one of the biggest rap artist to come from the west coast. Artists T-Pain, Tech N9ne in addition to E-40’s bay area conglomerate Guce, Black C of RBL Posse, Laroo, Turf Talk, Cousin Fik, J. Stalin and The Click all grace the forthcoming albums. E-40 and his son Droop-E who also raps and produces will once again share Executive Producer credits on both albums.
New Orleans native, Michael Lawrence Tyler, better known by his stage name Mystikal, released his first album on Mystikal’s New Orleans-based independent record label Big Boy Records in 1994. He found himself in conflict with fellow New Orleans rappers signed to Cash Money Records including U.N.L.V., Lil Wayne and B.G.. They dissed him on tracks like “Drag ‘Em in Tha River” by U.N.L.V. He struck back with the diss “Beware” which was on his sophomore effort Mind of Mystikal. Mystikal signed to Jive Records and released Mind of Mystikal in 1995. He signed to Master P’s No Limit Records in 1996 and released Unpredictable in 1997. He appeared on many of the No Limit albums in 1997-1998. In 1998 he released Ghetto Fabulous.
