Too $hort Breaks Down His 25 Most Essential Songs

6. Too $hort "Invasion of the Flat Booty Bitches" (1999)



Producer: Erick Sermon
Album: Can't Stay Away
Label: Jive

Too $hort: “That's another song that [I redid]. There was a version from when I was in high school, there was another version from the '75 Girls' days, and another version from the Jive days. It's almost a true story but an overly exaggerated true story.

 

We went from our school to Berkeley High and we were smoking weed and shit. We just kept laughing because there were these flat booty girls everywhere we went. We really were on a mission that day, looking for a girl with a fat ass.

 

“We was cutting school one day and went down to Berkeley. We went from our school to Berkeley High and we were smoking weed and shit. We just kept laughing because there were these flat booty girls everywhere we went. We really were on a mission that day, looking for a girl with a fat ass and I was the one who wrote the song about it.

“Erick Sermon heard the shit somewhere, and he was like, 'Yo, you gotta make that song.' He really wanted me to. I didn't give a fuck about 'Invasion of the Flat Booty Bitches.' It was said and done. So that Jive version is an Erick Sermon beat."
