In honor of his 30th year in the game, Too $hort has announced his new album, The Pimp Tape, set to drop March 10.
The cover art is a throwback to the days of cassette tapes. Featuring a portrait of a teenaged Short Dog, the artwork also includes an image of cash and that of a signed tape.
Released three decades after his debut album Born to Mack — which was available on cassette — The Pimp Tape is set to feature 17 fresh cuts from the Bay Area legend. As usual, the iconic spitter comes with a star-studded lineup of guests that includes G-Eazy, T.I., 2 Chainz, Snoop Dogg, E-40, and Jazze Pha.
Ahead of the release, Short teams with Ty Dolla $ign, Jeremih, and French Montana on “My Girlfriend.” Over a Yay Area bounce, Short rhymes about a woman while using his “favorite word.” “I seen a homie last night on some fly shit,” he raps. “Had the nerve to introduce me to my bitch / His main bitch is my side bitch / She stayed cool, acted like a side chick.”
The Pimp Tape, which follows 2012’s No Trespassing, is available for pre-order now.
