Cooper), "Flashlight" (George Clinton, Jr./Bernie Worrell/William "Bootsy" Collins), "Good Times" (Nile Rodgers/Bernard Edwards) and "Inner City Blues (Make Me Wanna Holler)" (Marvin Gaye/James Myx, Jr.).
  • "It's been a long time since I first got down, but I still keep makin' these funky sounds." That about sums up Too Short's tenth (and final?) effort, a typically easy-to-listen-to, funky, smooth-grooved release. East Oakland's Too Short is still exploring the themes he's always been drawn to: the struggle to "make it" in a tough world ("Survivin' the Game"); money and its attractions as well as its evils ("Gettin' It"); and, of course, sexual attraction ("I've Been Watching You").
  • The artist also known as "Short Dog" is joined by some major talent here, including Parliament-Funkadelic and Erick Sermon. The trademark easygoing, unruffled style is still there, and the raps are, as always, straight-up and real. Fans of this tenacious rapper won't be disappointed, but be warned: The disc opens with the claim that this will be "the last album." Stay tuned.
Professional Reviews
The Source (5/96, p.72) - 3.5 Mics - Dope - "...His going away party, ALBUM NUMBER TEN, packs the power of pimpology, as always; but it's more a testament to his longevity in hip-hop and ability to do the same thing and make it enjoyable every time around....Too Short may be the only artist in hip-hop to call his own retirement."
