Rappin' 4-Tay

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", recorded in West Oakland at Grafitti Tunes with producer/songwriter Cyrus Esteban. "Don't Fight the Feeling" 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.
