"This one!!! I've been listening to Too Short since Shorty The Pimp but he stopped making good albums since You Nasty(his last solid effort). Chase The Cat was a bad album but even it wasnt this bad. Songs like That's Right, The Set Up, and Triple X show you The old Too Short I fondly remember. Quit Hatin Part 1 grew on me but this album is weighed down heavily by these. Filler: Get That Cheese is the first time I heard Too Short make a corny record. Songs like Lollypops, Female Players, Cali-O range from painfully bad to boring. Call It Gangsta is ruined by a bad beat and that Mystikal clone Petey Pablo. Pimp Life is bland and She Loves Her is so awful that anybody that is remotely turned on by lesbianism will puke with the quickness(yes its that bad!) Bottom Line:What's My Favorite Word is Too Short's worst album period. Yes even worser than Cant Stay Away, Chase The Cat and Married To The Game(the last one smokes this album though. Boring beats, lackluster lyrics and weak guest appearances is what you can expect from this album."

Not as funky but still smooth

"I must admit firstly that this album has taken a more softer funk approach to Too Short which suggests he has moved slightly more with the time than sticking to straight out funk like he did back in his prime time before hes short lived retirement. If you want those deep funk beats, you wont find it all here however the clever ploy of this album is that Too Short has stayed true to himself even though he has slightly changed hes beat formula to suit 2002. The beats are still deep but have a clarity about them. A more polished updated sound as such. I still prefer the deeper Ant Banks style funk but this is better than anything else thats coming out in this current time. Too Short has always stayed 1 step ahead of all others as far as funk is concerned thanks to his consistant raping style which although is more repetitive than most rappers is still the most flowing and hes love for funk as apposed to complexity which I believe is what kills this genre of music. Rap is suppose to be about flow and feeling, not about complexity and perfection and thats why Too Short and Ant Banks are by far the funkiest dudes in the rap game and have been for ages. This album contains some real crap though, particularly the quit hattin songs. They do not belong to Too Short, they should have been given to the East Coast in my opinion. However there are enough smooth moments on this album that get the thumbs up as the most enjoyable album of 2002. Cali-o while isnt one of Ant Banks best is still deeper funk than what you will get these days."
