Too $hort Talks Lady Gaga Collaboration for ‘ARTPOP’
Lady Gaga revealed that she will have Too $hort on her upcoming album at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards. Now, the Bay Area legend is speaking on the collabo.
Too $hort spoke to MTV News about his work on the singer’s forthcoming LP, ‘ARTPOP.’ “I was doing some songs last year with one her producers, DJ White Shadow,” the rapper reveals. “He’s been pretty busy, doing his thing around the world and he got back at me a little while ago and said, ‘There’s a song that Lady Gaga’s doing that possibly they would want to get you on … so I said, s— I’m down with it!’”
The ‘Blow the Whistle’ creator then laid vocals down and like the rest of us, is waiting to see how it all turned out. “I’ve been taking it in stride, man. I’m not the kind of person who goes around bragging to everybody, ‘I did a song with Lady Gaga!’” $hort states. “But it happened and it’s been a few weeks since we did it and I’m glad it’s coming to surface now and I can actually talk about it.”
Initially, Gaga mentioned the collaboration with Too $hort during an interview with Sway on the red carpet at the MTV Video Music Awards.
