Deluxe 180 gram pressing of Too Short's 1988 album Life Is! Through classic albums like this and 87's Born To Mack, the Oaktown playa taught rappers how to pimp and mack, among other things (like the proper way to say "Beee-itch"). Can't front on the funky ass old school beats and rap style all over this piece, especially the title track (that still slaps hella hard to this day), "Don't Fight The Feeling," and the funked out "Pimp The Ho." Also check "I Ain't Trippin," "Cusswords," "City Of Dope" and the smooth boogie vocoder tribute to the O, "Oakland." 9 tracks in all with exact cover art reproduction.
