"After 3 straight out consistantly funky albums, Gettin It is the start of the steep downhill spiral of Short Dog. All hes post retirement releases since are complete crap, replacing funk for commercial spastic beats. However there are some awesome grooves on this album but I think you could cut it down to about 6 tracks. The first 3 hit the spot. The opener is a nice placid jam with a good melodic hook that saves it from becoming a bit to monotonous. Track 2 and 3 are typically groove orientated Ant Banks jams that are worth every cent. Track 4 stinks before the smooth **** my car. There are a couple of so so tracks till the albums end there after but in general your not missing to much if you switch the CD off after track 5. This release was a tired production and after hearing the absolute garbage after hes retirement, he should have stayed there"
Album "#10" maybe my least favorite of his

"16 months after his last album (my 2nd favorite of his) $hort is back with his last album before "retirement". Gladly he came out as of the 11 $hort albums I own this may be my least favorite and it be a shame if he retired after this. With 13 songs, none are near classic amterial, 1 I skip, 6 are ok and the rest are good, not great. Guests are on all but 3 songs, and $hort ain't even on 2 of them!! Production isn't near as funky as his early 1990's and 1980's stuff that made us all love him, but it is still decent, just not GREAT like his earlier releases. Shorty B does 5 songs, Colin Wolfe does 3, Ant Banks does 2 and Spearhead X, MC Breed and LA Dre all do 1 song. A good album for his fans to have but far from the man's best work.
#1 - 8 (f/ George Clinton & P-Funk) #2 - 8.5 (about surviving in the game) #3 - 8.5 (a nice dirty one) #4 - 7.5 (f/ Murda One, Stud and Joe Rizs) #5 - 8 (f/ MC Breed -- about his pimp ride -- nice beat) #6 - 7.5 (about trying to take his Biaaaatch) #7 - 6.5 (f/ Erick Sermon, MC Breed, Kool Ace) #8 - 6 (f/ Goldy & Kool Ace --a bout pimpin') #9 - 7 (Baby D -- no $hort -- nice beat) #10 - 8 (f/ Wendie Rice -- about his dirty lyrics) #11 - 9 (f/ Rappin 4-Tay & MC Breed -- tight beat -- also on 4-Tay "Off Parole" album) #12 - 7.5 (dirty song -- f/ Reel Tight) #14 - 2.5 (f/ George Clinton, About Face and Gary Shider -- no $hort)

"What a way to go out!! See, after this album Too $hort was about to retire. Actually he didn't record any solo albums untill his big comeback in 1999. And he hasn't stopped since then. But this isn't about now, it's about his 1996 album "Gettin' It". And what an album it was. Short Dog was making sure his 10th album would be a classic! And he didn't dissapoint, making this another PERFECT album, from beginning to the end. In terms of lyrics and flows, it's Short Dog at his best. Of course most of his raps are about pimping and being a playa, but he also adresses some social issues as well, talking about what's going on in the ghetto and also talking about the rap game, representing Oakland to the fullest. And the beats are top notch, some of that Dangerous Music funk, with some of the hardest bass-lines you'll ever hear (just listen to track no. 7, after 3:24 minutes into it... you'll understand!). Production is handled by Ant Banks, Shorty B, Too $hort, MC Breed, LA Dre and others. Guest appearences by MC Breed, Erick Sermon, Goldy, Rappin' 4-Tay, Funkadlic Parliament, Kool Ace... It's a classic Too $hort album , just an album you'll enjoy without skipping a track (unlike those weak ass albums maistream rappers come out with these days). Too $hort shows on this one that he's still the best at what he does, he's still a pioneer and one of the realest rappers out there. [Oh, and by the way, you'll hear Luniz disses all over the album! :)] Get this album, if you're a fan of Bay Area rap, even though any REAL rap fan should enjoy this masterpiece!"
Now whether on the strip, or in the bar...

"Too's 10th album was supposed to be his last, so it seemed that he wanted to stretch out his style - which yields inconsistent results. Granted, it's still Too $hort, so the subject matter remains the same as it was since the early 80's. This seems to have been his last album where his choice of guest appearances was contingent on quality over bankability. Even Rappin' For-tay makes an appearance on "Never Talk Down". MC Breed, Eric Sermon, et al come correct. Shorty B's bass lines are funky and display excellent use of negative space, particularly on the album's strongest track - "F*** My Car". Other strong moments are the inspiring title track and the diva chorus to "Pimp Me". "Nasty Rhymes" has a casual, breezy feel and the album ends on a freaky Parliamentary note with "I've been watching you"
Unfortunately, the album is littered with weak spots. There's the confusing "So Whatcha Saying", where Too laconically fires back at his detractors. "Baby Dee" is wack filler.
The good outweighs the bad though, and Album Number Ten is worth the money. The sun will rise, the sun will set, and Too $hort will put out an album every year or so. For that we can all be thankful."
