"Chin Check" is a single by N.W.A from the Next Friday soundtrack. The song was also released on The Best of N.W.A: The Strength of Street Knowledge and as a bonus track on the N.W.A Greatest Hits album. This was N.W.A.'s last single.
The song is remembered for being a "reunion song" for N.W.A, as it was the first song they performed together since their split and a tribute to member Eazy-E, who had died in 1995. It is also remembered for Ice Cube's pay of respect to his deceased bandmate, a verse where each member sings the lyric "Why the fuck not", and the disturbing introduction of the song that features a woman dialing 9-1-1 for help because four men have broken into her house, only to be violently shot (which is emphasized by what sounds like a shotgun blast).
"Chin Check" marked N.W.A's first and only single since 1991's "Alwayz into Somethin'", and their first collaboration with Ice Cube since he left the group in December 1989.
