YouTube Preview Image

The iconic film director, producer, writer, and actor, Spike Lee stopped by Sway in the Morning today to talk about his new upcoming film, Chi-Raq. A film where the girlfriend of a Chicago gang leader (Nick Cannon) persuades other frustrated women to abstain from sex until their men agree to end the senseless cycle of violence.

Since the trailer for this movie dropped, it received mixed reviews from fans — especially from Chi-Raq central, Chicago. But Spike isn’t here to hear it. As a matter of fact, he passionately addressed them in a classic Kanye-fashion and broke down why they’re wrong.

While in-studio, he compared Chi-Raq to Chicago’s version of his classic film, ‘Do the Right Thing.’ And if you pay close attention, you’ll notice Samuel L. Jackson narrating this movie, as he did in ‘Do the Right Thing.’

Watch below as he delivers a strong message to rappers in Chicago, breaks down the storyline, addresses the strong black women in the film, and talks about #BlackLivesMatter.

“Sometimes the truth hurts,” Spike Lee tells Sway while closing their interview, “and we didn’t tell any lies in this film. We gotta be grown adults and deal with the truth… Let’s wake up.”
