We began this Saturday by thinking of some great movies with equally great soundtracks. One that immediately came to mind was the iconic early 90’s hip-hop movie, Juice, which featured one of the late rap legend Tupac Shakur‘s best performances. Playing the intense “Bishop” character, Shakur made even the most conservative critics stand up and take notice.  The soundtrack also garnered critical acclaim and included contributions by urban music legends like Naughty by Nature, Too $hort, Eric B. & Rakim, and Aaron Hall among many others.Enjoy!

Check out the Rotten Tomatoes Review:

Cinematographer Ernest R. Dickerson directed and co-wrote this crime drama about a group of friends who get involved in a robbery. Bishop (Tupac Shakur), Q (Omar Epps), Raheem (Khalil Kain), and Steel (Jermaine Hopkins) are four Harlem friends who spend their days skipping school, getting in fights, and casually shoplifting. The only member of the group who has plans for the future is Q, who dreams of becoming a deejay. But one day Bishop happens to see James Cagney in White Heat and the film inspires him to buy a gun. His plan is to rob a corner store and split the money. Everyone goes along with the plan except for Q, who is competing that night in a deejay contest. At the club, Q is a rousing success, but he spies the stern faces of his friends through the cheering crowd and realizes that he has to go along with the robbery, which goes completely wrong. ~ Paul Brenner, Rovi
