10 Spike Lee Hip-Hop Moments – Old School Daze

3) Four years later, Lee aimed for MTV rotation again with Naughty By Nature’s “Hip-Hop Hooray” (1993)

Rather than helm a video for another one of his movie’s soundtracks, Lee stepped outside the cinematic box to call the shots on Naughty’s ubiquitous rap anthem. Check for the movie-man’s cameo near the clip’s end, shortly after the late Eazy-E takes part in a semi-automatic water gun shootout. It doesn’t get much better than this, rap lovers.

    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.
