10 Spike Lee Hip-Hop Moments – Old School Daze

7) In 1998, the entire soundtrack to Lee’s He Got Game was recorded by Public Enemy

In a clever tweaking of the traditional soundtrack format, Lee called upon his old friend Chuck D, Flavor Flav and company to treat their sixth studio album as a companion piece to the director’s basketball drama. He Got Game was also PE’s final album on Def Jam Records. Wu-Tang fanatics should also note that the collection includes a Chuck D meets Masta Killa record, “Resurrection.” Yet, the set is most known for its title track, which sampled an old rock hit (Buffalo Springfield’s “For What It’s Worth”).

    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.
