Lifes Too Short Often times when the normal parent or upstanding citizen turns on the TV and sees a young black man rapping about the hood they are usually turned off Stereotypes come in to play and the channel is switched without even considering what message that human being is trying to convey When listening to rapper Too Short and his song Gettin it you hear a lot of stereotypes being defied The song is about getting out of the hood and making a good life for yourself Most of society just assumes that these young black rappers have no brains and no sense of purpose for life Too Shorts song Gettin it tells a different story Too Shorts successes portray the dream that kids have growing up in the hood Those kids dream of getting rich at a young age and living like a true player for the rest of their days They want to drive around in a benz and have girls fill the whole thing What these kids dont understand is that Too Short didnt get to where he is by pimping or selling drugs he got to where he is by some simple rules discussed in his song Gettin it First of all an important ingredient to the song is how it appeals to kids With its ghetto beat and monster bass the song is something that kids feel cool listening to This is his first success ingredient getting the attention of his audience so that they will listen to his message His message is of course the best thing about the song It explains to kids to stop just hangin out
