On this day 25 years ago, January 17th, 1992 the iconic hip hop film “Juice” Was Released to the public. This film was a break out role for the late Tupac Shakur and also a film debut for Omar Epps.

The film touches on the lives of four youths growing up in Harlem. It follows the day-to-day activities in the young men’s lives starting out as innocent mischief but growing more serious as time passes by. It also focuses on the struggles that these young men must go through everyday as well such as police harassment , rival neighborhood gangs and their families.

The film was shot in New York City , mainly in the Harlem area, in 1991. The movie was directed and co-written by Ernest Dickerson, the cinematographer on Spike Lee’s films, and like Lee’s “Do The Right Thing” it is filled with details of the daily life, fashions, music and language of a black neighborhood.

Today we celebrate One of my all time favorite urban movies of all time. Check Out some photos below of the film as well as some scenes, Happy 25th Birthday Juice !
