Todd Anthony Shaw, the revered West Coast rapper known as Too $hort who is responsible for classics like “The Ghetto” and “Blow the Whistle,” has jumped on the EDM bandwagon. On March 25 $hort will release Weird Science, an 11-track album containing one original version of the song “Weird Science” and 10 remixes by Dirt Monkey x Omega, Psymbionic x Wolf-e-Wolf, Samples, AHAB, S.P.E.C.T.R.E, Timmy Tutone, Skulltrane, Smash & Grab, Trevor Kelly and Mochipet, who’s BPM’s range from Trap, Dubstep, Future Bass, Juke, House and Experimental. Short is joined on the track by Bay Area-based female rapper Oh Blimey.
Obligatory press gush from Mal, founder of MalLabel Music, the label behind the project: “A Too $hort/MalLabel collaboration was the natural next step. After years incorporating hip-hop into our events and our label releases — plus with the rise of trap music — I knew having a rapper like Too $hort on board would work with our audience.”
The original version has been posted on SoundCloud. Here it is for your listening pleasure.
