If you look here you can find your answer. :)

“Its melody is sampled from Mtume’s “Juicy Fruit”, and has an alternative chorus sung by R&B girl group Total. The song is considered by many to be among the greatest hip-hop songs of all-time.”

Often when songs are sampled or redone in new ways, elements of the original title linger on.

@asmonet No metaphor in there though? I guess I just always assumed that there was some significance beyond the sampled song.

Well, his life is full, rich and lush now (in the song), ‘Juicy’ does fit the theme. I wouldn’t think it extended any further than that.
