Here’s how Dave Chappelle ended up as a Prince album cover

12th July, 2016

Dave Chappelle is back and telling intimate showbiz stories that are everything!

Ahead of a recent series of shows at New York's Radio City Music Hall, Dave Chappelle stopped by The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon to share some personal stories, including his first encounters with Jimmy’s house band The Roots, and Kanye West. Which is the best!

He also chatted to Fallon about ending up on the cover of Prince’s final album. Released in 2013, ‘Breakfast Can Wait’ featured an image of Chappelle taken from a sketch from Chappelle's Comedy Central series.

The comedian memorably explained, "That's a Prince judo move right there. You make fun of Prince in a sketch and he'll just use you in his album. What am I going to do — sue him for using a picture of me dressed up like him? That's checkmate right there."
