Soulja Boy To Reprise Tupac Shakur's Role Of Bishop In Remake Of "Juice"
For some reason, it was decided that the classic and what should be sacrosanct 1992 Ernest Dickerson film Juice needed to be remade.
For some reason, it was also decided that Soulja Boy should reprise the late Tupac Shakur’s brilliant breakout role as Bishop.
In a recent interview with VIBE, Soulja Boy talks possibly signing to Cash Money, his support of Lil B and where he wants to take his acting career. But we’re still mortified at stuck on him ruining remaking Juice.
“You know how the movie goes, but we’re flipping it and shooting in Atlanta. I want to show these people my acting side and me being creative—always giving them something new; that’s all.”
So remaking the quintessential New York hood coming of age story of the 90’s and changing its setting to Atlanta, Georgia is creative? Okay.
He also shared with VIBE that “the chubby one” reached out to him and wanted to be a part of the making. He means Jermaine Hopkins, who played Eric “Steel” Thurman.
On Wednesday he dropped a Mixtape that will serve as the soundtrack to the thankfully mini-movie. The tape also features tracks with Diamond, and Lil B.
“My new producer Kwony Cash did a bunch of beats. I produced a couple of the tracks. It’s mostly all new music, though. I recorded the whole mixtape within the last two months. Basically, it’s just this whole Juice movement I got going on,” he told VIBE.
Wait. So now Juice is his movement?
“I’m just shifting to this new swag; the new juice. People love me right now, and I’m just going to keep feeding it to them. My whole new thing is just the Juice right now. The Juice really got the internet hyped like how I want it to be and I’m doing this interview with y’all, so I’m doing something right.”
