Great News.My Man Raphael Saadiq Doing The Music For Our New Spike Lee Joint.Y'Know Saadiq Is Gonna Bring It.

Raphael Saadiq

Not his usual compadre Terence Blanchard (who scored many Spike Lee films) this time... but Raphael Saadiq, as the above tweet from Spike states.

Saadiq is also writing music for Fox Searchlight's Kasi Lemmons' musical Black Nativity, which is out this fall. Oddly enough, while Saadiq is writing music for that film, Blanchard is composing the score.

Still no word on what this new Spike Lee joint is about. Nothing. Nada. All we know is that there'll be lots of nudity and blood addiction. But it's not a vampire film, as he's emphasized. 

As of the time of this post, he's raised just over $276,000 of his $1.25 million Kickstarter campaign goal, with 24 days left. Will he get there? Well, he's about $1 million away, with just over 3 weeks to go; meaning, he'd have to average roughly $334,000 raised each week, for the next 3 weeks. The upcoming middle 2 weeks tend to be the toughest (in a 4-week campaign like this), with the final week seen a last-minute surge in contributions to get many-a campaign over the proverbial hump. 

Read our interview with Spike, in which he discusses the campaign and project, HERE, if you haven't. 

And then check him out live, tonight, in a conversation with the Black&Sexy TV crew, via their YouTube channel HERE.
