After thirty plus years of being in the game, the rapper Too Short is still touring and working hard to please his fans. On Friday evening, May 13th, 2016, he performed for hundreds at Sokol Auditorium in Omaha, Nebraska. In classic fashion, it took him a while to get on stage due to the onslaught of over a half dozen opening acts, some of which were halfway decent like Nikko McFadden. At one point there were over twenty people on stage and it was chaotic to say the least. By the time Too Short took the stage, the crowd seemed a bit restless. He opened with an old classic and got his show underway.
Throughout this old school hip hop performance, there were throwbacks to the late 1980’s and 1990’s. The song “Freaky Tales” from the 1987 album Born to Mack was brought back and resurrected. Too Short also performed “Sliding Down the Pole,” “Bossy,” and “Money Maker” among others. Many of these songs were raunchy, lecherous, and sexually explicit, which were expected and well received by the crowd. This was a completely different message and atmosphere than the Toby Mac Omaha concert attended just last month, but it was still fantastic to say the least.
Check out the performances of Too Short’s songs “Blow the Whistle” and “On My Level” from the show.
