Short But Funky

We can often get jaded in the land of giant buildings here in the city. Things can tend to get pretty monotoned from window to window if you don’t look too hard. The uniqueness of San Francisco is within the small shops that seem to occupy themselves in unfamiliar territory. Amongst your Guccis, your LVs and your Marc Jacobs lies one of the most powerful street-wear brands to date called The Hundreds.




No one should really be unfamiliar with this brand by now. I think the success that makes The Hundreds so long lasting amongst the many that have perished is the strong branding that has been embedded to all our psyches. When we think of The Hundreds…we ultimately think of…well, “is HUGE“.



Today is pretty much fan appreciation day for one of our own superstars of the Bay Area. Not only has Too $hort popped my cherry with porno rap with seductive lyrics like “pussy got wet like Niagara Falls” but he’s also made me learn that you can use the word bitchin a positive context. Remember, just because Too $hort called you a bitch, doesn’t mean he doesn’t love you.




“Fuck you and go support a Bay Area legend and cop my new CD No Trespassing out now! Bioootch!”

And a big thanks to these two for making my visit that much more pleasant and easy. Without them, all these pics wouldn’t have been possible.

  1. I went to my first big concert when I was 15 years old in Oakland at the Henry J Kaiser center. My friends dad dropped the two of us off. This was 1987. LL Cool J and Whodini headlined while Doug E Fresh and a young rapper from Oakland named Too Short was just blowing up with his newly released BORN TO MACK album. I was infatuated with his style of rap and loved that we were the only 2 asians there.

    The thing that sucked about the concert was it ended at 12am and his dad picked us up at 1am. Yeah, it was scary.

    Crazy.. here’s the flyer for it.

    • Man…that is one hell of a story. Funny how Whodini headlines over Public Enemy and Rakim seeing how they are really only known for one song. That seems a tad better then my first concert when I was about 14. I saw Tevin Cambell, Babyface and Boys 2 Men at Arco in Sac. Boys 2 Men killed! Haha.

      I’d be scared too, being stuck in Oaktown at that age. Short Dawg is one of the most consistent rappers in hip hop history. Freaky Takes is classic, that was bumpin out of everyone’s rides back in the day. I also remember seeing him every week at the bowling alley.
