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'.

- 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." [ thelaura's advice column | Ask thelaura A Question ]
