"Too Short never fails to impress me. He is the most consistent mc in the game, has near the most albums by a solo artist and has never dropped a garbage album. Cocktails is no different. Mackadocious pimp rhymes has made Too Short a living legend. He is definitely in the top ten best emcees ever and this is one of his better albums. Cocktails has more updated beats than was on his previous releases. Are they better? Yes and No. The beats have lost that touch of funk ( not as much of it in these songs ) and opts for more bumpable mainstream sound. It's either good or bad depending on your tastes in beats. To me they are equally bumpable. Too Short drops classic lines in songs such as Cocktales, Ain't Nothing But Pimping-a hilarious chorus, Thangs Change-where he drops knowledge on women degrading themselves, premarital sex, and sex on TV and how it is destroying youth, Can I Get A B!tch, Paystyle, etc. etc. Too Short lets other producers such as Ant Banks and The Dangerous Crew handle the majority of the beats. Tupac Shakur shows up for a guest appearance on We Do This, one of the best songs on the cd, along with MC Breed, Jamal & Malik from Illegal and Ant Banks. Overall this is a classic Too $hort album. Short Dog doesn't disappoint and keeps it real. I recommend it."
What about Top Down

"If it aint the most funky bass bangin hip hop track around then what is. Who cares about the raps, when the bass line is this funky nothing else matters. Quite a good album from start to finish but track 8, funk with a capital bass. As usual the Ant Banks tracks are the choice cuts obviously starting with Top Down then Can I get a Bitch and Giving Up the funk respectively. Not as consistantly enriched with funk as hes previous 2 albums overall, its still from start to finish a full on listen making him the funkiest rapper alive. Top Down cannot be matched in my opinion for funk"
"Been Mackin For Years and Ain't Fell Off Yet"

"This line came from the song "I'm a playa", and it holds true. I mean the guy uses the same few rhymes over and over again, but gosh darn it, he holds down as one of the tighest rappers ever. This was one of the few rap CDs that I could push play and let it go. With guest appearences by 2Pac, MC Breed, Freddy B, and Ant Banks, this album was off the hook. I did not think there could be an album to top "Get in Where You Fit in" but this came mighty close."
