One of the records that Bishop (Tupac Shakur), Steel (Jermaine "Huggy" Hopkins), and Raheem (Khalil Kain) steal for Q (Omar Epps) at the record store early in the film, is by the rap group EpMD, who is featured in the scene where Blizzard (Darien Berry) holds up the bar with Q as a witness, soon after they leave the record store.

Great Old School Hood Movie - Tupac and Omar Epps steal it
Juice is a film about 4 friends growing up in Harlem, it tells the story of how far you will go to get respect and how possessive the need to be respected can be.
I enjoyed this movie, a good solid hood film. The acting is superb, especially from Tupac and Epps. Really strong leading performances. The transformation of Bishop from the start to the end is played out perfectly by Tupac.
The movie has a great urban old school feel with a belting hip hop sound track. It's funny, tense, emotional and gritty. Watch this if you are into this type of genre, even if your not, its definitely worth a watch.
