Dave Chappelle Reminds Us Why We Missed Him
Dave Chappelle Buffed for his triumphant return to NYC
Caught Dave Chappelle twice during his 10 Gig run at Radio City. I agree with Esquire, dude was on his game. On night 2 Nas was fantastic as well (although I would have preferred to have heard the studio version of Illmatic, rather than the orchestra's interpretation - a bit too artsy for my tastes). But while Nas/Dave together was special, I preferred the first night when Dave was by himself and was free to deliver a slow burn, 2 hour set without having to cut his material short to make way for another legend.
