10 Spike Lee Hip-Hop Moments – Old School Daze

4) We can thank Lee and his 1994 film Crooklyn for, you guessed it, “Crooklyn,” from the one-song-only supergroup Crooklyn Dodgers (Special Ed, Masta Ace and Buckshot), from the flick’s soundtrack

You don’t have to hail from New York’s legendary borough of Brooklyn to feel the pride in this clip, which includes cameos from BK-bred superstars Mike Tyson and Michael Jordan. The tight verses from Ed, Ace and Buck, the Q-Tip-produced beat and those sick scratches on the hook don’t hurt, either.

    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.
