imageL.A. Ganz (pronounced “el-e-ganz”) were a hip-hop\rap group from Louisville, Kentucky that consisted of members Corwyn Hodge, Adrian Williams, Larry Young and Warren Killebrew.

In 1996, they released their only single “Like a Playa” which peaked at #89 on Billboard’s Hot R&B Singles chart, staying on the chart for 5 weeks. The song also peaked at #75 on the U.K. Singles chart.

The group was featured on movie soundtracks such as “Booty Call,” “The Long Kiss Goodnight,” “Phat Beach” and “Dangerous Ground.” After that, it seems as if L.A. Ganz faded into obscurity.

Corwyn Hodge has worked with Patti LaBelle & Nicole Scherzinger. These days, he is a member of a five-man vocal group called MO5AIC.

It’s unknown what the other members of L.A. Ganz are up to today.
