A shorty (sha-dee) is pretty much just a f*ck partner, someone you chill with, but wouldn't actually call your boo (your main thing). If you are already with someone, they are your piece on the side.
I used to pretend you were just another shorty I put the naughty on...

A shorty is yo main man that holds all of your drugs and guns and other illegal stuff for you until the heat is off. They also are your hookup and buy you your drugs and gats and hold them for you until you need them.
