Too $hort’s legendary 1992 effort “Shorty The Pimp” is back in effect on vinyl thanks to the hip hop preservationist at Get On Down. Though many don’t consider this to be one of Too $hort’s strongest releases, the project did move well over 80,000 in its first week of release landing at Number 6 on the Billboard Top 200. Taking the title from the incredibly rare 1973 Blaxploitation film, Too $hort does what he does best on Shorty The Pimp: funk beats, boastful braggadocio, a few conscious rhymes and layers of straight up pimp talk. The lyrical content can certainly be considered comical and entertaining. “Shorty The Pimp” is also a stand out project for producer Ant Banks who did many of the beats for the project, his first works with Too $hort with many more to follow over the next decade. Oddly enough, one of the best comments on “Shorty The Pimp” comes from a random guy on the internet who commented on his experience listening to the release, “I ran my car into a tree after listening to ‘It Don’t Stop’ Definitely made for cars with the booming systems!”

Limited edition for Record Store Day 2018!Only one copy per customer!“In my category, I’m the one and only,” proclaimed Oakland legend Too $hort on his 1990 single “Short But Funky.” Few disagreed then, and even fewer would do so decades later.First appearing in the mid-1980s slinging homemade tapes out of his car trunk, the man born Todd Shaw has always stayed true to himself. And although he is known more for the dirty side ofhis rap game, on “Short But Funky” he also reminds listeners of an important fact: “There’s a serious side to everything I say.”Short Dog’s In The House was $hort’s sixth album, and his second for the Jive label. By the time it hit, he was a West Coast legend, but his rep was growing Eastwards, as the rest of thecountry started opening its ears to new sounds. Peaking at #20 on the national Billboard 200 chart, the album was exactly whathis dedicated fans expected – funky, 70s-drenched beats made for cars on the boulevard; and no-nonsense lyrics that made more sense and dropped more knowledge than he was ever given credit for. For examples of his conscious side, look nofurther than the P-Funk fueled “It’s Your Life” or the album’s lead single, “The Ghetto.”The album’s second single “Short But Funky” landed somewhere in the middle of $hort and Todd Shaw, talking aboutb where he was at as the new decade broke, and making it clearthat he wasn’t going anywhere. His mortality was particularly on his mind after rumors had surfaced the year before that he had died in a crackhouse. He speaks directly to this crazy episode on“Dead Or Alive.” And although it’s mostly a solo affair, he brings in some heavy artillery – and a lot of not-for-the-kids profanity – on “Ain’tNothin’ But A Word To Me,” featuring none other than Ice Cube. In between, $hort distributed plenty of tales and charisma for fans to eat up, continuing to build his legendary status as one of the rap trailblazers of the era. Presented here on black wax witha poster of the excellent cartoon cover graphic, it’s time to give this one a spin, whether it’s the first or 100th time.
