Long before it became an Ice Cube–helmed movie, "Playaz Club" was a song by Rappin' 4-Tay, the San Francisco-bred MC introduced to the game by Too $hort. He told a story of about an exclusive mythical place in every city where the real Gs hung out together. At the same time, he detailed how he got on in hip-hop. Though he never had another real hit- the follow-up single, "I Get Around," was popular at the time but has been less revered since then- Rappin' 4-Tay will always be remembered for this classic cut.
