Movie director Spike Lee has addressed the shots fired his way from hip-hop artist Chance The Rapper over the recently released Chi-Raq movie.
In a new interview, Spike questioned Chance’s true issues with his film and accused him of being a hypocrite.
“First of all, Chance the Rapper should say full disclosure: his father works for the mayor. His father is the chief of staff. Show me any criticism. If you’re so concerned about Chicago, do your research, show me where he’s made criticisms about the mayor. I think your finds will be surprising. He’s not criticized the mayor. Why? His father works for the mayor.” (CNBC)
Chance took to his Twitter page Friday (December 4) and went at Spike for his new movie’s fictional solution to solving Chicago’s violence.
Spike recently defended his movie amongst criticism coming from people over its title and content.
“I have students who make feature films on their iPhones,” Lee said. “So, all these people talking smack, you can make a film. You can make your own film.” (Chicago Tribune)
