Dr. Dre Drops “Keep Their Heads Ringin’” From The ‘Friday’ Soundtrack 26 Years Ago
On this date in 1995, Dr. Dre, along with producer Sam Sneed, put together the lead single “Keep Their Heads Ringin’” from silver screen hood favorite Friday. Within two months, the Death Row Records-owned single was certified gold and appeared on Death Row’s Greatest Hits just a year later.
The F. Gary Gray-directed video of the single features Friday cast members Faizon Love (Big Worm), Chris Tucker (Smokey), and Nia Long, ending with Chris Tucker and Faizon Love taking the plane and flying away from the police.
Shout out to the Doctor and Sam Sneed for cooking up this classic hit for a timeless flick! Salute!
