Too Short is the fifth studio album by American rapper Too Short. It was released in 1988 through Jive Records and RCA Records, although it appeared as a Dangerous Music/RCA Records release until Jive Records logos appeared on the release on October 25, 1989, after it became successful. It is currently his highest-selling album to date, being certified double platinum by the RIAA for sales of over 2 million copies. T. Bohanon - Producer. Al Eaton - Guitar, Keyboards, Producer, Mixing.

Al Eaton had a studio called One Little Indian Studios, and he was a pretty good guitar player. And he did guitar on ‘City of Dope. So he pretty much spearheaded that track, and it was just based on the little guitar riff. I knew the music well enough, ‘School Boy Crush. I knew the music so I wanted to make a song-you know, a good song should make good music

Few rappers have been as successful at projecting apathy as power, but the rapper’s breezily nihilistic worldview-where the drama really ain't worth my time -has always been his charm.

Label: Dangerous Music ‎– 1149-1-J. Format: Vinyl, LP, Album. I would say this is actually the second pressing. If you notice, this one has the cadillac logo whereas the other one has the 'playboy' style logo (which was the original 'Dangerous Music' logo also used on the very first pressing of 'Born To Mack'). So I would say that this pressing here is a second pressing based on the cadillac logo. Correct me if I'm wrong. Reply Notify me Helpful.

Too Short's predecessor, Born to Mack, too many East Coast MCs were inundating hip-hop with clichéd tracks consisting of only James Brown samples and a drum machine. Too Short, however, presented an attractive alternative with highly melodic, danceable tracks that made no secret of his love of '70s funk heroes like Parliament, the Ohio Players, and Cameo

Album starts at 88BPM, ends at 74BPM (-14), with tempos within the -BPM range. Try refreshing the page if dots are missing). The Sex Tape Playlist.

Exclusive discount for Prime members. Sample this album Artist (Sample). It was released in 1988 and it was right away a huge success - in fact it was the first Bay Area rap album to sell a million copies (it sold more than a million, like many of Too Short's later albums).
