AllMusic Review by

If you've never read the collected works of Chester Himes or Iceberg Slim, simply run through this Too Short anthology and you'll have the general idea. Although never an inventive rapper or clever composer of rhymes, Too Short was smart enough to find his niche and stick to it. Most people who continually mined the pimp arena quickly become merely tedious; Too Short became both tedious and profitable.
