Rap Daily: Atlanta rapper Soulja Boy is planning to drop a mini-movie to go along with his recently released mixtape, titled Juice.
The Juice mixtape, which hit the Internet on April 20th, features guest appearances by Roscoe Dash, Diamond, J. Money, Lil B., Tonio, Calico Jones, 2 Chains and Kwony Cash.
Soulja Boy said the inspiration behind the mixtape came as he watched the classic 1992 movie "Juice," which starred Tupac Shakur, Omar Epps, Jermaine "Huggy" Hopkins and Khalil Kain.
"I was in LA a couple of months ago and I was watching the 'Juice' movie and I was like 'Damn bro! Tupac, extra turned up in that movie!' I was just doing my One Up Mixtape, so I was like 'I’m gonna call my next mixtape 'Juice,'" Soulja Boy told AllHipHop.com.
According to Soulja Boy, he is finishing up a mini-movie for the album that he hopes to premiere on BET later this year.
"My close friend and I was like 'man I want to do a mini-movie' and so we got the budget together," Soulja Boy told AllHipHop.com. "We were in pre-production and people reached out and wanted to be a part of the movie."

The 45-minute film will be directed by Dale "Rage" Resteghini, who shot the video for Soulja Boy's "Kiss Me Through the Phone."
Rage has also directed videos for Diddy, Busta Rhymes, Jim Jones, Guns-N-Roses, Fall Out Boy and others.
"BET is going to premiere it and its going to come with like three music videos off of the mixtape," Soulja Boy told AllHipHop.com. "It's going to be a movie that I want people to check it out."
