Too Short- Born To Mack Classic
Enlightened | Atlanta Georgia | 07/17/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Too Short's career has been spit upon by supposedly `real hip hop fans'. Those fans are stupid people because they don't realize Short's influence on the rap game and hip hop music in general. He basically started this pimp/ player rhymes and flows. He's hated on for his flow, lyrical content, woman bashing etc. etc. His beats are slow ride out beats made for a car. Too Short is an underated storyteller as well. Sex stories have never sounded better than a Too Short rhyme.Although he released a series of tapes out the trunk, this is his first `official' album. 1988...Freaky Tales. The beat was so playalistic...and the rhymes were on pizoint. This song was the joint when it came out forget what you heard. This song really got me into hip hop music. It is indescribably tight. 10 minutes of PURE TRILLNESS. Bliss. Other songs that were tight were Mack Attack, Dope Fiend Beat, Little Girls. Although the album is only 8 songs, the average length of each song is 5-6 minutes...leaving plenty to digest.Although the album rarely gets any more spins from me ( because of his newer albums having better beats and rhymes and his constant innovation * check the Yo Neck Yo Back remix for sonic brilliance if ya don't know! * ) this is still an essential album for any serious hip hop cd collector. A Must Have."
A pioneering West Coast album with great beats and lyrics.

"This is a great CD, with extremely heavy bass lines and good lyrics. It is an extremely influential Bay Area rap album, and also Too $hort's first release on Jive Records. Of course, "Freaky Tales" is a classic that everyone loves, but "Mack Attack", "Dopefiend Beat", "Little Girls", and other songs are also some of the best rap songs ever made. Anyone who likes any Old School rap from the Bay, needs to go get this CD."
Kickin' it old school, Yay Area style

"This is $hort's first album. This is where he defines himself as the pimp, player, mack daddy of Oak-town, CA. It's because of $hort Dog's early work that the Yay is on the hip hop map and this is the album that started it all.The production on this album is hella tight. The beats are bumpin' and the bass is just boomin'. Even on my stock stereo, the whole car be rattlin'. The lyrics are classic $hort. Who can forget FREAKY TALES. This is just 8 minutes of pure pimpin'. In addition, MACK ATTACK, YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN, and LITTLE GIRLS are just tha shiznit. This is arguably $hort's best album.This is a definite must have for any hip hop collection. Old school Yay Area sound all the way...YOU KNOW!"
