Christopher "Play" Martin (born July 10, 1962 in Queens, New York) is an American rapper and actor, formerly the latter half of the late 1980s/early 1990s hip-hop/comedy duo Kid 'n Play.


Martin is a cousin of Martin Lawrence. He is a graduate of the High School of Art and Design, in New York City. Martin has a son, Skyler Martin, with ex-wife Shari Headley (an actress best known for her role in the 1988 comedy Coming To America starring Eddie Murphy). The couple married in May 1993 and divorced in June 1995. Martin also has a child born in the 80s, Vannessa Martin-Jackson, with his ex-girlfriend Janae Yvonne Jackson and a son, Christopher Martin, Jr.

Martin now resides in Durham, North Carolina, and was a hip hop teacher at North Carolina Central University until budget cuts forced the school to let him go in 2009. Upon learning of the firing, students began a petition for Martin to be given back the position, along with 9th Wonder. Martin also serves as a professional-in-residence with the Institute for Hip Hop and Music Industry Studies that Clemons directs at Florida A & M University, and he devotes time to the non-profit group Campaign for Change.
