Amidst his own scandal, Too $hort admonishes sexual assault on "Drink Champs"

On an episode of Drink Champs, Too $hort - with fellow Bay Area guests Yukmouth and Mistah F.A.B. - expresses disappointment in the rash of recent sexual assault allegations in the entertainment industry.

Too $hort has made a career out of making songs about his power of persuasion over women. Recently, however, the three-decade-long tenured MC has found himself accused of being physically abusive to a woman who says he forcefully performed oral sex on her in various encounters in 2016.

Teana Louis, who $hort was in talks with to guide her recording career, hit the Oakland Street oracle with a lawsuit in January with allegations of sexual harassment, gender violence, gender discrimination, and false imprisonment.

$hort denies any wrongdoing and in a recent interview with TMZ, he said Louis is upset that her career didn't take off and she is out to get his money.

"We were supposed to work together," $hort said to TMZ. "This is blatant outright extortion. I'm being extorted. This isn't a criminal case. It's something that stems from over a year ago. It was initially Instagram posts. ... Now, I know for a fact it's all about money.

"We did not ever have sex," The 53-year-old added. "She was not taped. The most we ever had was a foreplay situation. How you gonna take some foreplay incident and turn it into crime? I don't know. I feel there is nothing I would do that's not consensual."

Tonight (Feb. 1) on "Drink Champs," $hort joins N.O.R.E. and DJ EFN for a conversation with fellow Bay Area Ambassadors Yukmouth and Mista F.A.B. Among the topics of discussion was the recent string of all these sexual harassment and assault allegations against prominent men in the entertainment industry.

"I'm so disappointed in the stories I'm hearing about how these powerful men are locking doors and cornering women," $hort proclaimed. "That's not how we do it. We don't corner women and give them ultimatums."

The Hustling and Mackin' Godfather also brought up a scenario.

"You with the girl, y'all very intimate. She's in the mood. She's hot, horny, wants you. But she says no. OK, we not doing shit. You feel me? That's a playa situation."

$hort and company continue the Heavy talk by discussing the Beef surrounding him and Yukmouth and a famous fight, while Mistah F.A.B. Opens up about a lyrical back and forth with members of Slaughter House. See and hear it all tonight at 10pm on Revolt TV.
