Dave Chappelle Describes His First Encounter with Kanye West
Dave Chappelle visited The Tonight Show this week to talk about meeting The Roots, getting his character on a Prince single cover and, best of all, meeting Kanye West for the first time.
Chappelle recounts listening to a new Jay Z track with Common, Talib Kwali and Kanye, who didn’t even have an album at the time. Kanye’s reaction to Jay Z mentioning him in the song is PRICELESS.
Even better is when Kanye takes a call while watching Chappelle’s new sketches and says “My life is dope, and I do dope sh*t.” PERFECT.
Of course, these are all dramatizations a la Dave Chappelle, so they’re even better than the real thing. Enjoy!
