"Ain't No Nigga" is the second single from rapper Jay-Z's debut album "Reasonable Doubt". It features a long verse of promiscuous rapping from a then 16-year old Foxy Brown. The song's beat is produced by Big Jaz, who samples "Seven Minutes of Funk" by The Whole Darn Family. The beat sounds much like EPMD's "It's My Thing" because they both sample that track. The song's chorus interpolates "Ain't No Woman (Like the One I've Got)" by The Four Tops. The "Ain't No Nigga" single goes under the clean alias "Ain't No Playa".

Citing the funky production and lyrics about unfaithful relationships, Spence D. of IGN.com describes it as "one of the better opposite sex rap duets ever laid on wax."Spence D. .
