Shortyo hits hard with third album King Of The Kounty distributed by E1 Entertainment (Koch Entertainment) which drops October 13, 2009. Featuring banging beats by Felli Fel, Oz n da Decon and fresh verses by Yung Berg, Lil Wayne, Too $hort, Nate Dogg, Reed Dollaz, and Shoshyn this album is aimed to please many. This was the first time I heard Shortyo’s music and I was delightfully surprised.

The family man launched his own record label Affiliated Records in 1997 hitting the streets with his own mixtapes. In 2002 he signed a distribution deal with 101 Distribution outta AZ and released his first album Living My Life. He later released his second album Death Notice for free online.
