The Oakland-based rapper will be performing along with three other Bay Area hip-hop artists for one night in San Francisco, as the first of a series of shows
JABM Enterprises is proud to present Bay Area Nights, a series of shows celebrating and promoting Bay Area hip-hop artists and culture. The first show will begin on Thursday, November 11 and will take place at The Midway SF at 900 Marin St. San Francisco, CA.
The first show features Oakland-based rapper Too $hort as the headliner, with Symba, DJ D-Sharp and LaRussell as the supporting acts. The show is also meant to commemorate Too $hort celebrating 35 years of being in the hip-hop industry.
Todd “Too $hort” Shaw is an acclaimed hip-hop artist, songwriter and entrepreneur that hails from Oakland, California.
Over the course of his nearly 40-year career as an artist, $hort has cemented his legacy as a hip-hop heavyweight and pioneer of West Coast rap, having amassed six platinum albums and four gold certifications.
With the release of his 22nd solo studio album (Ain’t Gone Do It) in December 2020, $hort earned the unique distinction of becoming the only active hip-hop artist to have released an album in five different decades, punctuating an already vast catalog that included platinum albums such as Life Is… Too Short, Short Dog’s in the House, Shorty the Pimp, Get In Where You Fit In, Cocktails, Gettin’ It (Album Number Ten), etc. He is also the only artist to have collaborated with Tupac, The Notorious B.I.G. and JAY-Z.
$hort’s unprecedented run and legendary discography was celebrated as part of Verzuz, the renowned series conceptualized by Swizz Beatz and Timbaland. $hort went head-to-head against fellow collaborator E-40 in the highly-anticipated battle that drew nearly 3 million viewers – combined between Apple Music and Instagram Live – and their Verzuz battle and the array of music hits earned the distinction of the third-highest tweeted Verzuz battle ever.
Now, $hort’s influence permeates through every corner of modern music, with Drake paying homage to his smash single “Blow the Whistle” in DJ Khaled’s “For Free,” and Yo Gotti and Nicki Minaj’s sample of “Freaky Tales” in their No.1 smash, “Rake It Up.” Most recently, Saweetie, Post Malone, Da Baby and Jack Harlow sampled $hort for their dynamic collaboration on “Tap In (Remix)” in 2020.
Interested fans can purchase presale tickets for $45, while day of show tickets are priced at $50. Fans who want access to the VIP Lounge with Private Bar and complimentary hors d’oeuvres are encouraged to purchase the VIP ticket priced at $100.
