Last week, Lady Gaga dropped a bombshell when she announced that she would be working with Too Short. During her performance at the iTunes Festival, the pop singer debuted the collaboration, which is called "Jewels And Drugs." However, the song does not merely include Too Short on the track; joining the two are T.I. and Twista. This makes it an interesting song on several different levels. For starters, all three rappers are no longer signed to major labels, having gone the independent route for now. Secondly, all three seasoned veterans have their names beginning with "T," which is likely a coincidence.
The song quality for the performance of "Jewels And Drugs" came out quite clearly. Gaga actually brought both Too Short and Twista on stage with her to peform the song. T.I., who starts the song off with the first verse, was not able to come; Gaga shouted him out before his verse began, saying that his legal situation would not allow him to travel to the festival. Watch the performance above and check out the audio below. "Jewels And Drugs" will appear on Gaga's upcoming ARTPOP album, slated for a November 11 release.
