From the first time I heard Too Short’s “Blow Job Betty,” I became a firm supporter of his pimpness; but, for some reason, it took me a good 5 years to see him live.
Too Short @ The Key Club Video Concert Review
One of the largest factors in passing on his shows was that I knew he was only going to do 5-6 songs. My suspicions were correct. Too Short didn’t hit the stage until a little after 12, and only dropped about 6 tracks (to the best of my recollection.)
I do, however, have to hand it to Too Short in regards to being da bomb. It was awe-inspiring to hear him rap. He hit every word and verse with almost perfect clarity - never missing the beat. He also had a kick-ass party going on up on stage that def added to the atmosphere (chicks getting naked always seems to do that).
Final parting words: I was bummed that Too Short talked about doing “Blow Job Betty,” but never actually performed it. I wish the show would have featured more of his old school classics and lasted a little longer.
I will probably go see Too Short again, as long as it doesn’t conflict with any other shows I want to see. -lorn
Special thanks to Brad Hoss at The Key Club for letting us cover Too Short.
