Dr. Dre's "Still D.R.E." in Training Day
Film Released: 2001
"Still D.R.E." marked a triumphant return for Dr. Dre and a musical style that epitomized the West Coast in the '90s. The accompanying video remains an iconic collage of lowriders, voluptuous women, and celebratory G-funk with visuals from director Hype Williams in his prime.
Lowrider included, this song also sets the tone for the film Training Day in which rogue detective Alonzo Harrris (Denzel Washington) exposes rookie Jake Hoyt (Ethan Hawke) to his seedy world of corruption. Flexing his acting muscles, Dre even makes a cameo in the film as Detective Paul. "You a long way from Starbucks, homie," Paul tells Hoyt. He had no idea.
