Short Dawg was born in Houston, Texas. As a young kid, Short didn’t have much of an interest in pursuing a rap career. It wasn’t until the age of eighteen that Short began showing signs of something special. His brother, Blu Mega, began listening to some of Short’s crazy freestyles. His brother urged him to pursue and work at his talent. Ultimately, Short moved to Atlanta, GA to begin his rap career.
After the releases of a few mixtape’s, Short was discovered by Hip-Hop mogul’s Russell Simmons and Jermaine Dupri. After a joint venture couldn’t be worked out, a bit of an auction battle pursued. Short ultimately decided to sign with Dupri’s So So Def, but still didn’t feel like he could reach his full potential there.
It was around this time Short Dawg and Lil Wayne began serious discussions to sign him over to Young Money, after being close friends for a number of years. After a seamless transition over to YMCMB, Short Dawg has found a label and crew to support the music he wants to create. Over the last years, Short has worked as hard as anyone to improve his music. That progress can most certainly be seen in songs such as, “Lean” and more recent songs such as, “Trouble On My Mind (Freestyle)”. Although the world has seen young artists from Young Money such as Drake and Nicki Minaj, there are still a number of artists ready to be introduced to the world. Short Dawg will most certainly be one of them.
