Rapper Too Short has finally broken his silence about becoming a new dad at the ripe age of 53.

According to Too Short, the rapper, whose catalog reveres the pimp lifestyle, did not want to be a father. 

"I can tell you why I didn't have kids before now is because I didn't want to be a father at the wrong time. I knew who I was. I knew what I was doing. I was just enjoying my celebrity-hood. I've seen a lot of people struggle with their personal lives and their celebrity life. Doing the job, the travel, the hours in the studio and stuff, and I had my fun. Now it's time to pass it on."

And according to him, the fact that he had a daughter is very significant:

"Well, you know, in my case, I think it's extremely particular that I had a daughter. It might be easier to digest, 'Oh, Too Short has a son, oh cool.' But Too Short has a daughter? What's he gonna do? I am dealing with that right now, man. I definitely have to think about years to come where these songs may hit her ears and she goes, 'Who are you, daddy?' So, I gotta get ready for it," he told TMZ.
