10 Spike Lee Hip-Hop Moments – Old School Daze

5) In 1995, Lee executive produced New Jersey Drive (theatrically premiered in April) which spawned a star-studded, two-disc soundtrack

Lee served as executive producer on this low-budget carjacker saga, produced under his 40 Acres & a Mule Filmworks imprint. The movie itself, while better than its given credit for, didn’t register much at the box office; the epic double album/soundtrack (released on Tommy Boy Records), however, was a who’s who of hip-hop at the time. Redman, Queen Latifah, OutKast (“Benz or Beamer”), Jeru the Damaja and Organized Konfusion were among the many artists included. The biggest record found within the individually released two-LP series was undeniably Total’s “Can’t You See,” featuring, Biggie Smalls, of course.
