* * * Too Short, "Get In Where You Fit In," Jive. On his fifth album, the hard-core Oakland rapper is on the front lines of the romantic wars--and often gets shot down, as on the amusing "Gotta Get Some Lovin'." Backed by some lazy, funky grooves, he cannily makes you feel what it's like to be a libidinous young man on the loose in the 'hood. For guys only.
