The Mack of the Century... Too $Hort's Greatest Hits [Explicit Lyrics]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Jason Birchmeier
The Mack of the Century...Too Short's Greatest Hits compiles select highlights from the Oakland rapper's 13-album output for Jive Records. The selections span three decades, from 1988 to 2003, leaning heavily upon Too Short's late-'80s/early-'90s prime, including such memorable songs from this era as "Freaky Tales," "Dope Fiend Beat," "Life Is...Too Short," "I Ain't Trippin'," "Short But Funky," "The Ghetto," "In the Trunk," "I'm a Player," and "Blowjob Betty." There's a noticeable de-emphasis on what followed, however. From 1995 onward, The Mack of the Century... includes only four songs: "Cocktales" (1995), "Gettin' It" (1996), "Burn Rubber" (2003), and "Choosin'" ...

This approach certainly doesn't result in a balanced summary of Too Short's career to date, yet it does ensure that The Mack of the Century... showcases a lot of the rapper's prime work (as featured on the albums Born to Mack, Life Is...Too Short, Short Dog's in the House, and Shorty the Pimp) at the expense of his latter-day output, which was less successful as well as less popular. [There is also a clean version of the album available.]
