If you haven’t seen this classic from ’92 you definitely should and If you haven’t even heard of it you should feel ashamed. Simply because of the main two reasons: the awesome music and haircuts.
Street cultures in New York around the 80′s and 90′s were dominated by the still young hip-hop. A culture originated in the Bronx, where Juice will bring you the story about four friends up in Harlem. The intro credits wouldn’t have been any special if it weren’t for the title song played in the background by Eric B. and Rakim. Not to mention the appearance of the EPMD members, a whole lot of vinyl records, Pete Rock and DJ Scratch and of course Tupac acting. I only dreamed of having an afro haircut like Bishop, the character played by Shakur, who wins the award for Best Haircut by far.
Well see for yourself and check out the Reebok Pumps, Timbs and jeans (501′s that is), denim jackets, dungarees, red and black lumberjacks, wayfarers and the parka’s worn by Omar Epps. Oh yeah, almost forgot to mention Steel, the guy with his name shaved in the back of his head and Raheem with the rolled up sleeves.
