(AllHipHop News) The O.G. west coast legend and the most eccentric pop superstar since Madonna somehow find themselves on a new record together for Lady Gaga’s upcoming album ARTPOP.
At the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards Lady Gaga revealed to Sway that Too $hort will appear on her upcoming album, ARTPOP. The collaboration apparently started from the Bay Area legend eavesdropping on a Skype conversation Gaga was having with producer DJ White Shadow whom $hort was in the studio with. $hort spoke with MTV about the formation of the as-of-yet untitled collaboration:
I was doing some songs last year with one her producers, DJ White Shadow. He’s been pretty busy, doing his thing around the world and he got back at me a little while ago and said, ‘There’s a song that Lady Gaga’s doing that possibly they would want to get you on’ … so I said, ‘s— I’m down with it!’
$hort also revealed that Gaga informed him that she plans to debut their collaboration during a live performance which Too $hort has confirmed he will be apart of. He also revealed that he is currently working on a house music project with DJ White Shadow.
ARTPOP is scheduled to be released on November 11th.
