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.

according to black people it means a girl, according to white people it means a small person or dwarf
from the artist "Lil' Scrappy". "I got money in the bank
shorty what you drank"
that's in a black person's view, for white people it's like " hey pals, lets go to the annual short people throwing competition."
