Too Short is an Oakland MC from the 80s who brought pimping into the rap game. Not only does he produce, write his own rhymes, but he has been doing it for almost 30 years straight! Arguably every MC has been influenced on some level or another by “Short Dawg”. With career ups and downs, a couple years ago he was caught by TMZ taking local Oakland officers on a foot pursuit, but he’s also a platinum seller. Even if you’ve never bought a Too Short album you’ve definitely heard his influence and his unique way of saying “beyotch!” on popular tv shows, movies, and in various songs. Most recently Too Short has been appearing in reality tv shows (Couple’s Therapy, LA Hair) which has given his long lasting career even more life. Take time to explore Too Short’s 16 + album catalogue and get ready to learn something about macking and pimping and Oakland. The video attached is especially unique because Short describes his lengthy career in 2 short 16s on a club beat like only Too Short can. Honorable mention for the Gettin It album, Too Short’s short lived retirement project, and the CLASSIC Freaky Tales. ENJOY! BEYOTCH!
Did you the know the same year that Micheal Jackson released his album BAD, that same year LL Cool J months earlier released his hip hop album of the exact same name. B.A.D. (Bigger And Deffer) Did Micheal Jackson bite LL in 1987? Food for thought.
Whether the title was original or not this album is especially dope. If you haven’t had the pleasure we invite you to enjoy this full stream of this CLASSIC body of work.
Editor’s note: Smooth Criminal, Leave Me Alone, Bad, Man In the Mirror, The Way You Make Me Feel make this album a MONSTER body of work. LONG LIVE Micheal Jackson
