The Juice soundtrack — now leaping up the pop charts — is an essential element of the movie, serving to heighten the dramatic tension as effectively as the actors. The soundtrack’s executive producer, hip-hop megamastermind Hank Shocklee (Public Enemy, Bell Biv DeVoe) has assembled a collection of new and old tracks by a who’s who of street music, ranging from hot newcomers Naughty By Nature to New Jack Swing pioneer Teddy Riley. There are many surprises: Shocklee produces a track by Big Daddy Kane that is the most compelling three minutes that the rap vet has recorded in years, and hard-core rap favorites like EPMD, Too $hort, and Cypress Hill crew contribute material that can’t be found on any of their albums. Sparkling with otherwise hard-to-find gems, this soundtrack should send rap fans rushing out to record stores, while offering the uninitiated a crash course in what’s hot on the street. A
