Signed to Ruthless Records and produced by DJ Quik and Eazy E, the Penthouse Players Clique began promisingly enough. Comprised of Playa Hamm and Tweed Cadillac, the short-lived West Coast gangsta duo debuted in 1992 with a full-length album (Paid the Cost), a pair of singles ("Explanation of a Playa" and "P.S. Phuk U 2"), and an appearance on the Trespass soundtrack ("I'm a Playa"). That was it, though. Years later, Cadillac resurfaced with the Mackadelics on Exposed to the Game (1996) while Hamm embarked on a solo career, beginning with Layin' Hands (2001). ~ Jason Birchmeier, Rovi
