Too $hort's legendary 1992 effort Shorty The Pimp is back on vinyl thanks to the hip hop preservationist at Get On Down. T

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!'
