Big K.R.I.T. got a Twitter campaign going to get Lee down to direct the visuals for his "Praying Man" song, which features live vocals from B.B. King himself. An appearance on MTV's RapFixLive in August 2013 and an official hashtag (#SpikeLee4PrayingMan) eventually won the auteur over. Lee gave the go-ahead for the Mississippi MC to give his 40 Acres and a Mule office a call. The final results are still in progress.
