ARTISTdirect.com sat down with rapper Tito Lopez to discuss his love of movies. It's not even love, actually. It's a true passion that burns deep within. He is a dedicated cinephile who doesn't even like to call them "movies!"
Lopez even refers to himself a "film buff," since he likes to pay attention to the directors, the cinematography and even has films playing in the background while he is writing music. So movies influence his music on another level. He even shuts down communication when he goes to the multiplex, since it's like an escape for him. When the lights are cut, he powers down his phone, too. Do. Not. Disturb!
Do the Right Thing is his favorite movie of all time and he can quote it from back to front. He loves the visuals, and how director Spike Lee tells the story of a racially divided Brooklyn neighborhood with colors, like the red bricks representing the hottest day of summer.
He also loves classics like A Few Good Men and Raging Bull.
Don't forget Step Brothers, either. That's another fave.
