Too Short

London DJ Iamxl flips one of my favorite Todd Shaw jams from back in the day into an acid-ish house banger. Actually this is kind of a mash with C-Pen's "Puffin Stuff" (thanks Get Weird Turn Pro comment section), but it works.

Tracks like "In Da Trunk" -- where Short raps his ass off for four minutes straight, no hook -- make a lot more sense for house refixes or for hip-house in general than the verse/hook/verse/hook rap songs that made up hip-house in its salad days. Makes a lot more sense for the builds and breaks that house music thrives on.
