Jordan Peele Explains Why He Chose “I Got 5 On It” For “US” Movie Trailer

Earlier this week Peele sat down with Entertainment Weekly! Peele expressed choosing the song was pretty simple!

Jordan Peele: “I’m making a movie in Northern California, that’s a Bay Area hip-hop classic and I wanted to explore this very relatable journey of being a parent and maybe some of the songs you listened to back in the day aren’t appropriate for your kids,”

Peele also stated:“That was one level, and another part was, I love songs that have a great feeling but also have a haunting element to them and I feel like the beat in that song has this [inherent cryptic energy], almost reminiscent of the “Nightmare on Elm Street” soundtrack. So those were the ideas that that song hit the bullseye on for me, and also, it’s just a dope track.”
