Call it Chi-raq if you want, but we'll take back your tax credits...maybe

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.
