10 Spike Lee Hip-Hop Moments – Old School Daze

8) A scene in Lee’s 2006 film Inside Man shows a young African-American child playing a PSP game not unlike 50 Cent’s Bulletproof

Inside Man, Lee’s biggest box office hit to date, told the intense story of an intricate bank robbery. In one controversial sequence, the robber (Clive Owen) questions a young buck on his choice of video games; the kid is seen playing an ultra-violent shooter. On the DVD’s commentary track, Lee addresses the scene with, “I really wanted to make a comment on this bullshit, this gangsta rap infatuation with violence.” He later adds, “I’m not on Interscope Records. Jimmy Iovine does not own me.”
