  • Trivia

    • Spike was the executive producer on the 1995 film New Jersey Drive, which showed young black auto thieves in northern New Jersey. At the time, the city of Newark had the highest automobile theft rate in the country, and Newark Mayor Sharpe James refused to allow spike to film within city limits. Years later in the contested 2002 Newark mayoral campaign, Lee endorsed James' opponent, Cory Booker.
