Dr. Dre's "Keep Their Heads Ringin'" was nominated for a 1996 Grammy Award for Best Rap Solo Performance.
Being both the writer and the star of FRIDAY has kept Ice Cube extremely busy of late, but with the help of both old school and new school artists, he has also produced one of the finest soundtracks to come down the pike in a long time. Performing the opening title track, Cube has closely aligned his movie with his music, and it's just such knowing collaborations between black filmmakers and the hip-hop community that has made soundtrack albums a prominent means for compiling suave collections of black music.
Dr. Dre, undoubtably West Coast's finest, manages to "Keep Their Heads Ringin'" using his powerful vocals and spectacular G-Funk (with a little help from an old KRS-One sample) to transform any theater seat into the backseat of a jeep. Also along for the ride are fellow west coasters Cypress Hill--exercising their usual themes on "Roll It Up, Light It Up, Smoke It Up"--and their descendents, Funkdoobiest, who bring their ill style to life on "Superheroes." Slowing down the pace is the laid-back groove of Scarface's "Friday Night," complete with the smoothed-out flow of the former Geto Boy.
There is also a sizable amount of old-school funk featured here: the Isley Brothers' "Tryin' To See Another Day," Rick James' "Mary Jane," Rose Royce's "I Wanna Get Next To You." Throwing such tunes into the overall soundtrack mix adds a distinct knowing flavor to the album, and makes it even more obvious that Ice Cube knows what he's up to even when he's not behind the mic.
