Too Short

Too Short is the king of rap retirement. The Bay Area pioneer almost-retired most recently in a 2011 interview, saying, "Hip hop is very addictiv,... The last time I said [that I would retire], I was at 10 albums, and I was 30 years old." Now, "I feel 20's a good number. But who knows? 25 might be. Twenty-two's my lucky number."
