Too Short Discusses Retirement Possibility

Too Short talks about potentially hanging up the mic after album number 20.

As bay area legend Too Short gears up to release his 19th studio album, No Trespassing, he finds himself mulling retirement.

"Hip Hop is very addictive," explained Short Dog in an interview with DJ Skee on Hip Hop Nation's "World Famous Weekends," when pressed about the subject of retirement. "The last time I said [that I would retire], I was at ten albums, and I was thirty years old. I feel twenty's a good number. But who knows, twenty-five might be [when I retire.] Twenty-two's my lucky number."

Too Short revealed that if album number 20 really is his last, he might deliver a project significantly different from the ones fans have come to expect. "I've always wanted to make an album that had nothing to do with sexual content, zero curse words. Really revisit that kind of song I was making when I made 'The Ghetto' and 'Life is Too Short,' and just speak my mind on the days and times we live in, and just basically the rules would be no cursing and no sex."

"I'm looking around and there's a lot of...I'm getting a lot of motivation to do something like that," he added.
