Twitter and Wikipedia are not reliable news sources -- so says Too Short.

The notorious East Bay rapper --  whose real name is Todd Anthony Shaw, at least according to Wikipedia -- was the latest celebrity to be killed off by the Internet.

The news went viral, becoming Yahoo's most trending topic Wednesday morning.

The rapper's phone and email were flooded with messages, which prompted him to come back from the dead, or actually the studio.

"Stop calling my phone. I'm not dead. Been in the lab working on my 19th album #NoTrespassing in stores Feb 2012," he tweeted Tuesday.

The rapper questioned how he reportedly died and thanked his fans for the well wishes.

"Thanks for the calls, texts, emails & tweets. Its good to know yall got love for me," he tweeted before telling folks to report news of his wellness. "Retweet it & facebook post it. #2Short'sAlive."

In this video, Too Short reveals his favorite Oakland restaurant, which he will be able to visit again now that he's alive:
