Too Short: Turns Down Kanye's Beat

Too Short has worked with a score of incredible makers all through his very nearly 40-year vocation, from Jermaine Dupri and Lil Jon to Daz Dillinger and DJ Pooh. However, one major name beatsmith he missed the valuable chance to work with was Kanye West. During a new meeting with VladTV, the Bay Area legend reviewed Scarface enthusiastically informing him regarding the youthful Chicago-reared beatmaker around the time he was chipping away at his 2002 collection The Fix (which highlighted three beats from Kanye, including "Think about Who's Back"), yet Too $hort essentially wasn't intrigued. "I recollect Scarface called me. He was in New York, he was like, 'I got the coldest (bleep) maker.' He was discussing Kanye West," he made sense of. "You know everything that I said to him? I was in Atlanta, I said, 'Man, we got every one of the makers with me. I needn't bother with no new makers.' "What's more, he was like, 'I pled

Exclusive Interview with talented group Moon And Aries

Can you tell us your upbringing?   -         Hello, Jordana Moon here. Thanks for having Tom and I in your magazine! Tom and my upbringing was similar in the way we were both surrounded by music. It was a huge part of our daily lives. We both started in piano at an early age. I wasn't very good, not a natural like Tom. I went off to learn the violin and guitar, and then of course, voice lessons. Both Tom and I were in bands - and I was also doing theatre, in our late teens, early 20s.       How did Moon and Aries come about ?    -         Tom and I met on Instagram during the beginning phases of the pandemic. Both of us were composing and putting out original music, looking to expand our community. We were both instant fans of each other. I was always looking to collaborate with other producers, and Tom was only releasing instrumentals. I secretly hoped he would want to work with me, and after six months of friendship, the right time came. So summer of 2020, we began to work on The

   So Prince Lit, can you tell us a little bit of your upbriging? Where are from and how you made it to this point?   So I am from Denver, Colorado. I would say I have had the experience and benefits of growing up unstable. I've been able to learn that true growth only comes from being uncomfortable. My family and I moved from place to place sometimes state to state looking for a new start growing up, we never really were a family that had it all together. although we were Christian and went to church only when we could, the hardship still excisted my mom was rapped and kept me; although her first experience with that happened when my big brother came into the picture.  I was born into calamity and Grace my mother was always playing catch up so we could never really be there (in a place of comfort.)
