A moment of pure pleasure! Dave Chappelle, albeit sometimes a little humor too focused "pee poo, " offers us a moment of grace. If you have fond memories of rap concerts, your eyes will shine and move your butt all alone in your seat. Just for that feeling divine, buy this DVD. It's worth it!
The film follows Chappelle during the summer of 2004, up until September 18, 2004, when he threw a block party on the corner of Quincy Street and Downing Street in the Clinton Hill neighborhood of Brooklyn, New York City. The film features nearby sites including the Broken Angel House in Clinton Hill, Brooklyn as well as areas in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn. The film was produced before Chappelle's highly-publicized decision to walk away from a $50 million deal to continue his hit Chappelle's Show, and gained prominence after the announcement.
He invited several hip hop and neo-soul musical artists to perform at the party, including Kanye West, Mos Def, Jill Scott, Erykah Badu, and The Roots along with The Central State University Marching Band. Lauryn Hill was also scheduled to perform at the party, but since Columbia Records refused to release her songs for use in the production, she decided instead to reunite The Fugees for the occasion. In addition, Chappelle performed comedy monologues and sketches in between the musical acts.
If your a Fugees fan than you need to get it just to hear Lauryn do "killing me softly"
The only part you have to FWD is when you see the Crack Heads giving a tour of there broken Angels home. Its weird and You have to think to yourself was the entire cast high when they taped that part. Trust me FWDDDD
