West Up Bloggers,
This week we gona take it to the NorCal or Bay Area. Rappin' 4-Tay is
rapper from the Fillmore District of San Francisco, California. 4-Tay
made his debut on the Too Short album Life Is...Too Short, right after
high school. Later he was convicted on drug charges and served ten
months in prison When released from prison he released his debut album
Rappin' 4-Tay Is Back in 1991, and followed up in 1994 with Don't
Fight the Feelin', which included the hits "Playaz Club", the "Dank
Season"d "I'll Be Around". 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 track "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. This song I'll Be Around was a
classic West Coast record from the 90's which sampled the Spinners
"I'll be Around'.
