Too Short is one of the most accomplished rappers to ever touch the mic. Too Short put out Don’t Stop Rappin’, this was his first album back in 1983. Almost 40 years later, he’s still putting out music which is crazy. A few months back, Too Short was a part of the popular Verzuz battle with E-40. Short Dog released a bundle project with E-40 to coincide with their Verzuz matchup. 25 years ago today, Too Short released Getting’ It (Album Number Ten) and it was his 10th solo project. Getting’ It was actually one of my favorite Too Short albums. The title track, Gettin’ It has been a featured Throwback Thursday track in the past. The platinum selling album debuted #1 upon its release. Parliament-Funkadelic, MC Breed, Erick Sermon and Rappin’ 4-Tay was some of the artists featured on Gettin’ It.
As mentioned, this is one of my favorite Too Short albums. Overall, this showed his versatility, storytelling and proved too many he’s a good rapper. We all know that he is famous for saying that one word. Getting’ It has definitely aged well and still get much play. Getting’ It, Survivin’ the Game, Bad Ways, Buy You Some and Never Talk Down are my top 5 tracks. Like always, check out the track listing and stream links below.
