(Classic Video) Eric B & Rakim “Juice (Know The Ledge)”

Know the Ledge“, originally released on the soundtrack for the film Juice under the title “Juice (Know the Ledge)“, is a 1992 single released from hip hop duo Eric B. & Rakim. It was the theme song for the film and a single released from the duo’s 1992 album Don’t Sweat the Technique. The song became one of Eric B. & Rakim’s final hits together and featured a distinctive sample from Nat Adderley’s 1968 hit “Rise, Sally, Rise.” The song was one of the most successful singles released from the Juice Original Motion Picture Soundtrack. It is one of the most well-known showcases of Rakim’s storytelling ability, as he shares a first-person narrative of a neighborhood thug and drug dealer who is forced to come to grips with his violent and reckless lifestyle. Rakim also played lived drums on the track
