Tuesday, May 9th, 2017

This week, the Recording Academy announced New York City as the host city for the 2018 Grammy awards ceremony, which will mark the 60th anniversary of the biggest awards in the music business. To go along with the announcement, Spike Lee created this short called “NY Stories” which features an array of legendary New York artists highlighting historic locales throughout the 5 boroughs that hold a special place in the history of modern recorded music. Q-Tip appears in front of A Tribe Called Quest’s alma mater Murry Bergtraum High School and Joan Jett shouts out the John Varvatos store that used to be CBGB’s, while both Queensbridge and Marcy projects also get mentions.

The 60th Grammys will be broadcast from Madison Square Garden on January 18, 2018.

Watch a Trailer for Spike Lee’s Film Chi-Raq

Tuesday, November 3rd, 2015

After months of filming in Chicago, we finally get a proper trailer for the latest Spike Lee Joint, Chi-Raq. Set on the violence-ridden streets of America’s third largest metropolis, the film borrows from the narrative of a Greek myth to examine the topics of gun and gang violence, sexual power and the Black American ghetto. Withholding love to stop war? That’s an interesting strategy to say the least.

Chi-Raq is a modern day adaptation of the ancient Greek play “Lysistrata” by Aristophanes. After the murder of a Child by a stray bullet, a group of women led by Lysistrata organize against the on-going violence in Chicago’s Southside creating a movement that challenges the nature of race, sex and violence in America and around the world.

The film stars Samuel L. Jackson, Nick Cannon, Wesley Snipes, Jennifer Hudson, Angela Bassett, and John Cusack and opens in theaters December 4th.
