Bay Area hip hop artist Rappin’ 4-Tay talks about the Player’s Ball in the 1970s and how it has changed over the years. The Player’s Ball idea came from a scene in the 1973 blaxploitation film, The Mack. The lead character was a pimp that attended The Players Ball in Oakland, CA. The party has been a November tradition since 1974, when pimps around the country celebrate Bishop Don “Magic” Juan’s birthday. Past events have featured performances by Snoop Dogg, Ice Cube, Cypress Hill, Ice-T, Too Short, George Clinton, and more.
