"Juice" The Movie - The Background Actors Focus
Juice Movie Poster
Juice was a movie about 4 teenage friends living in New York at the beginning of the 90's. It reflects the change over from the Golden era, to the Chorus based music, styles and fashions. As one of the main characters is an upcoming Scratch DJ, it is very DJ based, and has one of the better soundtracks of the so-called "Hip Hop Movie" genres, this is down to Public Enemy's Hank Shocklee and The Bomb Squad coordinating the soundtrack & composing original music.

Over the last few years a lot of actors and movie pundits complain about Rappin' actors! But back then you couldn't even see rappers in videos, let alone movies!!! No Hip Hop Movie since Crush Groove (no I never saw that either), or Tougher Than Leather... No seriously, had a bigger effect on the Hip-Hop movement. If you talk to alot of Turntablists they will class this film as a BIG influence.
Most people just talk about the fact that it was Tupac's first real acting role, but its full of classic Hip-Hop cameos, and we at The Kool Skool thought we would put our Geek hats on and have a go at putting names to the faces. So heeeere we go...
