Too $hort drops hilarious & cinematic video for “Ain’t My Girlfriend”
The single features guest appearances from French Montana, Ty Dolla $ign, Joyner Lucas, and Jeremih.
“Hey dad, can you play that new Too $hort?” a seemingly upper class-born girl asks as she hops into the car with her family.
Directed by Embryo, the hilarious new music video for Too $hort’s star-studded “Ain’t My Girlfriend” (with French Montana, Ty Dolla $ign, Joyner Lucas and Jeremih) track features a formally-dressed family driving through their neighborhood in a minivan, having the time of their life singing along to the raunchy and explicit lyrics.
The creative visual features a comical cameo from the Bay Area legend and makes for a fitting introduction to his forthcoming studio album, The Pimp Tape [Dangerous Music/EMPIRE] – available everywhere November 9.

The new release comes as Too $hort receives recognition for his contributions to hip-hop with a BMI Award for the sampling of his 1987 track “Freaky Tales” on Yo Gotti’s platinum hit “Rake It Up.”
Too $hort has successfully cracked the code to hip-hop immortality with 32 years, 15 million Soundscan sales, 6 platinum plaques, 4 gold certifications, and collaborations with the likes of Tupac, The Notorious B.I.G., and JAY-Z.
“Too $hort’s twentieth studio album, The Pimp Tape, is set for worldwide release on November 9.”
With Drake utilizing his flow and lyrics on the double platinum DJ Khaled smash “For Free,” and Yo Gotti and Nicki Minaj twisting “Freaky Tales” for “Rake It Up,” Too $hort’s influence is timeless, and his impact is felt across the globe.
As far as West Coast hip-hop icons, Too $hort deserves mention in every conversation alongside Dr. Dre, Tupac, Snoop Dogg, Ice Cube, and E-40. His forthcoming project The Pimp Tape should leave no question about his spot at the top by embracing everything listeners fell in love with since 1985.
