Spike Lee Hopes To Direct Short Film For Big K.R.I.T.'s "Praying Man"

After making music video classics such as Public Enemy's "Fight The Power" and Naughty By Nature's "Hip Hop Hooray," Spike Lee and Big K.R.I.T. connect on Twitter with "Praying Man" plans.

Iconic filmmaker Spike Lee has become a household name for directing and writing films such as Do The Right Thing, Crooklyn and Summer Of Sam. Additionally, Lee has directed Hip Hop videos for artists such as Naughty By Nature, Arrested Development and the famed "Fight The Power" visual by Public Enemy. Yesterday, the Brooklyn, New Yorker announced that after a decade removed from a Hip Hop video credit, he hopes to collaborate with Meridian, Mississippi's Big K.R.I.T.

As reported by SoulCulture, Lee took to Twitter this past weekend (April 26) to reveal that he will direct a short film inspired by K.R.I.T.'s 2012 Live From The Underground song, "Praying Man." The self-produced effort boasted an appearance from Blues legend "B.B. King."

The tweet followed a plea, also on Twitter, by K.R.I.T. a day earlier, hash-tagged #SpikeLee4PrayingMan. Spike instructed the Cinematic/Def Jam Records rapper on how to contact him.

Earlier this month, Big K.R.I.T. released a free mixtape project, King Remembered In Time.
