Spike Lee/Beats Do the Right Thing

RIGHT HERE, RIGHT NOW: In honor of the 25th anniversary of Spike Lee's Do the Right Thing, Beats Music has released a 22-minute documentary,  entitled A Beats Music Experience, which revisits Brooklyn's Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood (or Bedstuy, as the hipsters say), where the iconic film was shot. The clip features a nostalgic Lee, original cast members and local residents, who come together at the end for a summer block party with guests Dave Chappelle, Wesley Snipes, Mos Def, Erykah Badu, who dons a hat similar to and actually taller than Pharrell's Vivienne Westwood staple, and Public Enemy, who perform the '80s battle-cry "Fight the Power."
