Ron Banks and the Fabulous Dramatics

You know you're too busy when you miss the death of the lead singer of The Dramatics and you don't even hear about until a week later. Ron Banks died of a heart attack on March 4th. The Dramatics were one of the funkiest soul groups of their era. "What You See is What You Get" is up there with almost anything that the Stylistics or Temptations put out. And check those moves.

Some of you may be more familiar with their work in one of the greatest (ignant) video/songs in hip-hop history. The Dramatics sweet smooth touch was a perfect accompaniment to Dr. Dre's rumbling bass and Snoop's drawling vocals.
