Pharrell Interviews Spike Lee About Filmmaking, NYC ’77 (Video)

You’d be hard-pressed to find two more versatile, dynamic artists than Spike Lee and Pharrell Williams. Both of these men draw influence from an array of cultures, styles, social attitudes, and more. In an Interview magazine style setting, Skateboard P sits down with Spike Lee to discuss what prompted the Brooklyn native to pick up the 8mm camera the same year that Reggie Jackson was slapping home runs out of Yankee Stadium, the Cold Crush Brothers were cold-rockin’ parties Uptown, and the summer blackout sent looters lootin’. Icons of pop culture, fashion, Hip-Hop, and more, this is a testament to the level of thought that should go into art.
