Too Short: Cocktales (1995)

too short cocktalesBy Scott Goldfine

Bay Area rapper Too Short continues to prowl the same lascivious terrain that he’s mined platinum with for close to a decade on the aptly title “Cocktales.” Short Dog’s appeal lies in funky grooves that rely more on musicianship than sampling and wry humor that leaves listeners blushing.

He’s at his best here, even though the whole routine wears a bit thin after a while.
