Spike Lee’s Joints — Nike Air Trainer II and ‘2.0’ New Era Cap

Do you know?40 Acres & some kicks…

Wrote a quick blurb about Spike Lee’s growing list of Nike collabs, and a few with New Era too, for Street Level dot com. Good site.

Below, scene from Do The Right Thing when Buggin’ Out is threatening to smack up (2X!) the gentrifier who disrespected his Air Jordan IV’s. Great, great scene.

Radio Raheem X Love & Hate X Robert Mitchum?

Who says the Internets can’t be educational? The homie Chuck Creekmur mentioned something about love = hate via Twitter and it motivated me look up Radio Raheem’s Love vs. Hate monologue from Do The Right Thing. Spike Lee got the NYC establishment’s panties in a bunch when he dropped this wonderful flick in ’89. I love the movie but ’til this day I can’t bear to watch its final 10-15 minutes. I won’t drop any spoilers but if for some odd reason you haven’t seen it; what are you thinking?

Oh yeah, the educational aspect of the above clip… I had no idea Spike ripped the concept from The Night of the Hunter. Might be worth checking out. Radio!
