Todd Anthony Shaw
Surely one of the best west coast rappers of all time & arguably the greatest in the pimp-playalistic mobb music genre.
Todd Shaw was born in South Central, L.A. but moved to Oakland, CA with his family in the early 80's, where he soon got into rap music.
He probably has one of the longest career in the rap game as he's still active. Famous for his "Biaaatch", he released more than 20 albums and worked with almost everybody in the game & most notably 2Pac, The Notorious B.I.G., Scarface or Pimp C, delivering so many classic verses about hoes, sex and pimpalishus lifestyle. In 96, he moved in Atlanta, GA for a while before returning to the Bay. That's why he appeared on several albums from ATL and other places from the South in the late 90s.
"Get In Where You Fit In" (1993) & "Cocktails" (1995) are considered by many as among the best West Coast Rap albums of all time & are just unforgettable masterpieces.
Got it, biaaaatch?
