10 Spike Lee Hip-Hop Moments – Old School Daze

2) The next year, Lee directed his second music video, Public Enemy’s “Fight the Power,” from the soundtrack to his classic 1989 film Do the Right Thing

You’d think a film as powerful as Do the Right Thing wouldn’t need its music video element to be just as provocative. But that’s exactly what Lee and PE did with this clip, a call-to-arms staged as a rally down the streets of Brooklyn. Not to mention, a vicious slap to the faces of John Wayne fans worldwide.

    Spike’s made alot of dope films. Also a lot of shitty ones ( like most directors). I gotta say Clockers is my fav Spike film no doubt. Love the 2 crooklyn dodger joints too, you didn’t list the return which had OC, Chubb Rock and Jeru the Damaja. That shit was crack back then.
