At 45 years old, rap legend Too $hort is just as dedicated to pimping and thugging as he was when he released his debut record three decades ago. As if to prove this point, one of his most recent releases, the 2010 “Respect the Pimpin’ ” EP, contains a litany of freaky tales with titles that read off like an SNL spoof: “Bitch I’m a Pimp,” “That’s Not Your Bitch,” “Get Ya Money,” and the tender ballad “Bitches Need Love Too.” Note: Rumors of post-show blood tests tonight are greatly exaggerated. With Greedy Ent, the White House Band, Power of P and Charlie Buko.
