"4 My Town (Play Ball)" is the fourth single from rapper Birdman’s fourth studio album, Priceless. The song features Young Money/Cash Money artists Drake and Lil Wayne. Drake's verse and the unmastered instrumental to the song was originally leaked and titled as "Play Ball" by Richie Wess and featuring Drake and Yung Dred, and then later placed on Soulja Boy's mixtape Paranormal Activity again as "Play Ball" featuring Drake.

Another version with another verse by Birdman, but no verse by Lil Wayne leaked before the official version had been released. A freestyle was made by Young Jeezy. "4 My Town" is considered to be the sequel to "Money to Blow", the previous single from Birdman's album.[1]
