Too Short (Again)

As previously mentioned, Bay Area don Too Short was way ahead of these other faux-retiring MCs, first saying his good-byes in 1996 after he dropped Getting It. But a few years later he released Can’t Stay Away and confessed that his retirement threat was a tool to gain leverage in contract talks with Jive Records.
