"Ain't Got Nothing"

"Play" is the second single released by rapper David Banner from his fourth studio album Certified. It was produced by Mr. Collipark.

Released in 2005, the single peaked at #7 on the Billboard Hot 100, remaining his sole Top 10 hit and his best-performing single.

An alternate version, entitled the "Canadian Mix", features Kardinal Offishall and Solitair and appears on the single.


This song uses a lot of sexual content. The clean version uses "don't play with me" as part of the chorus, as opposed to "gon' play wit it" and "work them hips" instead of "work that clit". Also, the clean version uses "run" instead of "cum". In almost every other line of the song, Banner alternates between whispering and rapping.
