FUN TO WATCH THE RAPPERS
nmann11 June 2000
This movie is not high art, but it is a good slice of pop culture. Make sure to see the video version, not the one hacked up on cable. The story follows two guys growing up in the hood, then going their separate ways after a botched robbery - one follows a life or crime, and the other later becomes a dea agent. It's interesting to see the Italian mob sub story- and B-real from Cypress Hill does a great job as the Hit Man. Rappin' 4-Tay is also very funny. The film has a music video style, and also features Flesh n' Bone from Bone thuggs, AMG, and Domino. Rap fans will appreciate this movie, and as long as your expectations aren't that high- it's fun to watch.

Rappin 4Tay is the best!!! Rappin' 4-Tay (born Anthony Forté on March 2, 1968) is an American rapper from the Fillmore District of San Francisco, California.

4-Tay made his debut on the Too $hort album Life Is...Too Short, but was arrested sometime after his 21st birthday on drug charges and served 8 months in prison. Upon his release from prison he issued Rappin' 4-Tay Is Back in 1992, and followed up in 1994 with Don't Fight the Feeling, which produced the hits "Playaz Club" (which sampled the song "Private Number" by William Bell and Judy Clay and hit #36 on the Billboard Hot 100), the "Dank Season" featuring Seff Tha Gaffla and "I'll Be Around" (which hit #39 on the Billboard Hot 100).

Rappin' 4-Tay's mainstream success has been scarce since then, but he was featured in 2Pac's All Eyez on Me album on the single "Only God Can Judge Me" in 1996, and Master P's West Coast Bad Boyz II compilation in 1997. 4-Tay was also an original member of Bay Area supergroup T.W.D.Y. in 1999.

In 2003 Rappin' 4-Tay released the album Gangsta Gumbo with the single "Burning, Burning", followed up by the album That's What You Thought in 2007.
