1. Too $hort Really is the Mayor of Oakland (VIDEO).

    No words necessary in this day in the life of Bay Area icon Too $hort , just the moody and grainy black and white photography of Jason Goldwatch along with the old school player sounds of “Bumpy’s Lament” as we witness the rapper holler at women on the street, break off some bread for those in need and spend some time volunteering at a youth center in East Oakland called Youth Uprising. Says the director: “I wanted to create something that really felt like the Bay, and not in the stereotypical pimp shit kinda way.”
