With all the accolades and milestones throughout his career, Bay Area legend Too Short is always looking to move ahead with the times, which is why he entered the digital era in early 2010 with the release of his first digital-only album, Still Blowin’.
Happy with the performance of the project, Short explained recently that more digital projects are on the way.
“I plan on doing more digital-only releases, just because it’s the same effect as a mixtape,” the hip-hop vet explained. “You can put some songs out there, see which ones get the most responses and get a better feel for your audience. Plus, how easy is clicking a button and then you get a check?”
Later this month, Short Dog will team up with EMPIRE Distribution — for the second time — for the release of digital EP, entitled Respect The Pimpin’.
The 6-track EP boasts collaborations with longtime friends Jazze Pha and Richie Rich, as well as a song with Snoop Dogg, titled “Bitch I’m A Pimp,” which will be released to websites and blogs beforehand as a teaser for the EP.
For Short, an EP is perfect, because with his newfound embrace of the digital world lets him do whatever he wants.
“There are no rules in the digital age — it’s whatever you can think of. I don’t feel like I have to make albums,” Short explained. “I can make songs, I can make EP’s, it can be a 5-song release, it can be 2 songs. As I make the music and I feel like it’s something I wanna put out there, then I’m gonna put it out there.”
So on December 14th, fans get ready to Respect The Pimpin’, when it hits digital retailers. Pre-order it at Amazon.com now.
