21. Too $hort "Cusswords" (1989)



Producer: Too $hort
Album: Life Is...Too Short
Label: Jive

Too $hort: “I had been getting reviews from the first album, from the Born to Mack album—you know, it was a really negative kind of [reception] from the press. They were like, 'This guy's pretty wack, he can't rap.' They were praising N.W.A. and Eazy E and they were shitting on me in the media.

'He can't rap, the music's wack, he'll never make it,' and all this stuff. You know, 'All he can do is curse.' So I made a song called 'Cusswords.' Just take it back to talking shit. I tried to say every cussword I could, in a row.”
