Album Review

The Mack of the Century...Too Short's Greatest Hits compiles select highlights from the Oakland rapper's 13-album output for Jive Records. The selections span three decades, from 1988 to 2003, leaning heavily upon Too Short's late-'80s/early-'90s prime, including such memorable songs from this era as "Freaky Tales," "Dope Fiend Beat," "Life Is...Too Short," "I Ain't Trippin'," "Short But Funky," "The Ghetto," "In the Trunk," "I'm a Player," and "Blowjob Betty." There's a noticeable de-emphasis on what followed, however. From 1995 onward, The Mack of the Century... includes only four songs: "Cocktales" (1995), "Gettin' It" (1996), "Burn Rubber" (2003), and "Choosin'" (2003). This approach certainly doesn't result in a balanced summary of Too Short's career to date, yet it does ensure that The Mack of the Century... showcases a lot of the rapper's prime work (as featured on the albums Born to Mack, Life Is...Too Short, Short Dog's in the House, and Shorty the Pimp) at the expense of his latter-day output, which was less successful as well as less popular. [There is also a clean version of the album available.]

Born in Los Angeles, but an Oakland resident by the age of 14, Too Short was the first West Coast rap star, recording three albums on his own before he made his major-label debut with 1988's gold album Born to Mack; his next four all went platinum. Anticipating much of the later gangsta phenomenon, he restricted his lyrical themes to tales of sexual prowess and physical violence, with the occasional social message track to mix things up. After the release of Gettin' It (Album Number Ten) in 1996,...
