The Flashback Fridays For 2/27/15: Dr. Dre - Keep Your Heads Ringin' (1995)
In a shoutout to his recent 50th birthday and this 20-year anniversary of his lead track for the "Friday" movie, it was only fitting that Dr. Dre be given a Flashback Friday thread for "Keep Their Heads Ringin."
Personally speaking, this was the first rap song I cherished, when I was at the ripple age of seven. Without me having any thought or knowledge of the West Coast-East Coast beef, the chorus alone got me going with this along with the tremendous video that showed Chris Tucker flying the plane to escape the cops while everyone continued to party aboard. It was a great directed video by the video directing legend F. Gary Gray and Sam Sneed will never be forgotten for helping produce this track with Dre and so many more hits, before his brain tumor and after.
So without further ado, one of the West Coast's best songs and one of hip-hop's most underrated legendary tracks, from two decades ago this time, it's Dr. Dre's "Keep Their Heads Ringin.'"
More to come from The Whole Delivery, stay tuned.
