"Street Player" (Danny Seraphine/David Wolinski) is a song by Rufus from their album Street Player (1978).

It was also covered on the eleventh album by the American band Chicago, released in 1979.

Well aware that musical trends were evolving, with disco at its peak in 1979, Chicago and co-producer Phil Ramone went for a slick sound, placing the band into a late 1970s clubbing context. While at the time they felt they were moving on and exploring new areas, Chicago's move into that territory, especially "Street Player", was reviled by critics and bewildered the group's rapidly dwindling fanbase.

Various samples from the song "Street Player" were used in the 1995 House track "The Bomb! (These Sounds Fall into My Mind)" by The Bucketheads.
