Editors’ NotesGet In Where You Fit In In has a celebratory air about it, and not without reason. With ten years under his belt as a recording artist, Too $hort was already one of hip-hop’s longest-running and most consistent institutions. His 1993 album is essential in part because it’s his first with a live band. Shorty B, Pee Wee and Sean G were a team of rappers-turned-musicians who had already played on albums for Digital Underground, Raw Fusion and 2Pac. Not only did they have an affinity for Too $hort’s style, but they delivered the live funk he craved. The musicians’ presence can be felt immediately on “I’m a Player,” the album’s baddest, sleekest gangster strut. Get In Where You Fit In utilizes a number of well-known song sources —“Gotta Get Some Lovin’” borrows from the Fatback Band’s “Love Spell,” “I’m a Player” from Bootsy Collins’ “Hollywood Squares,” “Money In the Ghetto” from Kool & The Gang’s “Hollywood Swinging” — but Too $hort’s team of producers and musicians invest the old songs with newfound force.
