The street committee released a report that indicated a certain young tellem cat is playing another certain dead (but not really) legend's most memorable role in a movie about oranges. Translation: How the hell Soulja Boy Tellem gon' play Bishop in Juice when that role was and still is immortalized by the dead (but not really) Tupac Shakur? This bothers me on a few levels: not just that Soulja Boy thinks he can fill Tupac's tattoos, but can the dude actually act? Is he gon' try and bring Waka Waka Waka and crew to remake the soundtrack? Replace "Shoot 'Em Up" with "Crank Dat Juice Up?"
Another thought: why are we resuscitating the hood (sub)genre and other early 1990s aesthetics? I'm pretty sure it's not out of nostalgia for days that swiftly past. Is it to introduce this generation to a set of movies that marked an era of Hip Hop's early introductions to mainstream culture and (re)production?
Soulja Boy, follow the path of your rapping forefathers and 'nem: do a cameo on Law and Order as one of Finch's long lost kids, and THEN we'll talk about you taking on a role of this magnitude.
I'm sayin: Tupac didn't dance.
