Skyzoo Reminds Us Why ‘Spike Lee Was’ His ‘Hero’

It may be hard to believe that there was a time when Spike Lee wasn't spending his days wishing he'd directed Django Unchanged and his nights berating visiting teams from courtside seats at Madison Square Garden at Knicks games. There was a time when his point of view actually brought something significant to the film-making landscape. While it may be debatable whether the once acclaimed filmmaker still remains relevant, Brooklyn emcee Skyzoo still holds him in high regard as the video for his track "Spike Lee Was My Hero" may suggest. The Alex Ghassan-directed visual of this Tall Black Guy-produced cut features Sky spitting over horns and a filthy snare while rocking Lee's trademark frames and surrounded by all things Spike. I've never been much of a Skyzoo fan and that fact remains, but it seems as though the young spitter typically feels the need to step it up when in the company of another lyricist. Who better to bring your A-game for than a feature from another likely hero from the BK, Talib Kweli. Even the man of the 25th Hour himself carved some time out of his busy schedule delivering pizzas for a small cameo. Watch them all in action and check out Skyzoo's album A Dream Deferred in stores now.
