Tupac’s first movie, he got the part on accident after going to an audition with a friend of his. He was critically acclaimed for his part of Bishop, and he modeled his Thug image after the character in the movie.

Four Harlem friends hang out and look for a way to get the power and the respect they call “Juice.” One hopes to be a DJ, but another of the crew wants to make it big with an armed robbery–and he wants his buddies to help him. A powerful tale of urban life, backed with the beat of Big Daddy Kane, Salt N’ Pepa and more.

Spike Lee’s longtime cinematographer, Ernest R. Dickerson, made his directorial debut with this violent story about four Harlem teens whose lives are changed when a store robbery goes wrong. The film has been likened to an urban The Wild Bunch, but it is far too artificial for that. With Dickerson’s eye, Juice understandably looks great, but at the end of the day it is only a slightly better version of the heavily clichéd crime movies that have artificially dominated perceptions of black cinema in the U.S. in the ’90s. Rap fans might enjoy seeing some familiar stars on board, including Queen Latifah and Tupac Shakur.
