Originally it was meant to refer to a young someone who was 'new to the game' And by new to the game, I don't mean a rapper, someone who sells crack, or whatever. In even simpler terms, it's a word to describe someone who is much younger than you.

These days commercial rappers have turned it into something completely different. They refer to shorty as an affectionate word used to describe a girlfriend or attractive female. Below are a list of other definitons people have now given the word:

- A young, attractive, teenage female.
- A name some men will call out to a woman they don't know in order to talk to her.
- A man will sometimes refer to a woman as shorty when he thinks of her as no more than a 'fuck buddy' or a 'female friend'.

Hope I helped.

"Has more than one meaning but is generally a term to describe a young woman amongst urban minorities. Shorty can mean:

- A female that is usually young in age/around her teens that is attractive.

- The man will use the term "shorty" to get the attention of a female that he is not familiar with but looking to talk to and possibly get her phone number.

- A man can also refer to a female as his shorty to imply her status as only being a just a girl friend that he chills with and more than often is also his fuck partner. She could be his woman on the side or one of other women he has a sexual relationship with.

- A man can either refer to a girl as shorty meaning that he doesn't care for her anymore than a girl friend or fuck partner. Or he can refer to the female as shorty implying that she is his down ass chick."
