Dave Chappelle has a ton of characters that have appeared on his self-titled show, but the best one he played was Rick James. He got Charlie Murphy — yes, Eddie’s brother — to tell some stories about hanging out with James, who was an absolute crazy person. The best part is that the show actually got the real Rick James to come on and confirm the stories!
Chappelle was phenomenal as the young James. He had the classic line of “I’m Rick James, bitch.” And people to this day still use that line to brush people off. This particular mockumentary told a story about the time Murphy had to kick some ass and force an apology out of James. A man’s couch is serious business.
