Too Short explained about ‘The Magic Gate’:
I just want to help all talent, no matter what type of music. We’ve built something that we can offer to artists in this digital age. It’s just all about dreams coming true, mine included. Magical things will happen; careers will be started. The people we have here [at Magic Gate] are all talented and we’re putting our blood, sweat and tears into this…we know the rewards will come later.
