*cracks knuckles* Ok. Looks like I’m gonna have to get down and dirty with some of you. Ever since we got wind that Spike Lee had plans on releasing his controversial film Chi-Raq, many of you have been up in arms, questioning Spike’s ethics, his talent, his moral turpitude, his ABILITY, his motives. And frankly, I’ve had about enough.
Spike Lee has been getting a lot of mixed reviews about his upcoming film Chiraq. Set in Chicago, Spike attempts to highlight the ongoing violence in parts of the city that have prompted people nationwide to question what exactly is going on out there.

The exhibit opened last week on April 9th in Chicago, IL. This awesomeness was founded in 2010 by Shantrelle P. Lewis. Check out some of the images below!

Well I don’t know about you guys, but I’ve been waiting for the return of Spike Lee for a very long time. Kinda like how we felt when Mike made a return, wearing the number 45, we’re excited, we’re watching, we’re hopeful.
While I couldn’t be more happy to see Spike getting back to work, it seems like he’s already ruffled some feathers.
