We just read in Vibe about Soulja Boy remaking the classic Hip Hop cultured film Juice. We are begging the director, Matt Alonzo, to please leave this project alone!:
VIBE: Can you tell us a little bit about the story line for Juice?
SB: Basically, it’s your boy Soulja and I’m Bishop in 2011, running around in the streets, man. 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. I got same video director that shot “Crank That,” “Kiss Me Through The Phone,” “Turn My Swag On” —my most successful videos. The whole mixtape is the soundtrack for the movie.
Vibe: Did you cast any other rappers in the flick?
SB: Yeah, man. Actually Cam’Ron reached out to get in the movie. Some of the original actors that were in the original reached out too. We’re in pre-production right now. We start filming on the Apr. 28th in Atlanta. It’s going to be crazy. Of course I’m going to have my S.O.D. family in there. We’re juicing up!
The legacy of Tupac should not be tainted with a half a*s rapper with no more substance than a dry search warrant. We are not fans of Soulja’s rapping, but we feel that is besides the point. Straight up… the kid is not worthy. Although Soulja dumped on the goons who tried to home invade… his music and lifestyle is not close to the relevance and importance of Pac to our Hip Hop Community as well as A.A. Community.
Please, please, please… stop it 5!!!
