It’s official! In Oakland, Dec 10 is now a holiday to honor rapper, Too $hort. There’s even a street sign to prove it! Mayor Libby Schaaf officiated the celebration for the first ever “Too $hort Day”! It just might have been the least the city could do.
Too $hort claims to mess with Oakland heavy. He comments, “The only thing that inspired me to become the rapper I was, that I am, is Oakland, California.” Too $hort might have L.A. ties, but he attended Fremont High School. Having graduated in 1984, the celebration took place at the campus. It’s good to still see rappers supporting their hometowns.
