Spike Lee and the City of Chicago are in a battle over the purported title of his new movie about violence in the city. Lee reportedly is using the popular slang moniker of "Chi-raq" to refer to the city's most violent neighborhoods as his title. Several aldermen proposed stripping Lee of $3 million in film tax credits, but apparently the aldermen have had second thoughts. The Chicago Tribune has the story here (note: not linked to the Tribune's website because it is behind a paywall.) Also at 2015 WLNR 22244242.
