“I’m not dead dammit!”
The proclamation heard round Twitter. The R&B/Hip-Hop/Rap favorite known as Too Short, aka Too $hort, is not dead! Not dead at all.
These celebrity death hoaxes are almost as annoying as some of the celebrities that are supposedly dead. Where is the Kim Kardashian death hoax? I suppose you could never pull that one off, because Kim is always everywhere…somehow she’s omnipresent and omnipotent, and if you tried to start an Internet death hoax, she would stop you before you could click to post. Remember how her second husband, Kris Humprhies, found out that she was filing for divorce via Twitter? She’s paying the right people, I tell ya.
Back to Too Short. Remember this guy? Maybe a frustrated fan started the death hoax because it has been too long since $hort has laid some sweet track–the flow that made him a every fourth household name in the 1990s. Short also tweeted, “Stop calling my phone. I’m not dead. Been in the lab working on my 19th album #NoTrespassing in stores Feb 2012.” Then it became clear…Too Short started this death rumor himself. Nothing like a trending topic to sell that 19th album! 19th.
Nah, no truth to that either, but the album will drop in February. If you’d like to follow the Oakland hip-hop legend, you can find him @tooshort — simple enough. If you have no idea who this lyrical master is, check out some of the mainstream flow from back in the day.
