Drake may be co-starring with Kevin Hart in a sequel to Spike Lee’s 1988 musical School Daze, according to a leaked Sony email sent from Lee’s agent. As if that wasn’t enough to spark your interest, get this: Drake’s character is named PE*NIS. Jimmy Brooks who?
School Daze is arguably the movie that propelled Spike Lee’s career forward. Alongside Drake, Kevin Hart will reportedly play DAT N*GGA JIGGA in the sequel.
In his email, Lee’s agent writes that the film maker has already met with Drizzy multiple times. “I believe in the film both as an entertainment — a college film — and as a provocative and exciting piece about the conflict of traditional values (education, college) and hip hop/star/celebrity culture,” he writes. “Why go to college to get a job to make money when you can make more money rapping, stripping, and creating salacious music videos even if they demean women?”
That is the question. Or more fittingly, the problem.
