Watch Dave Chappelle & Erykah Badu Cover Radiohead’s “Creep” At Badu’s Birthday Party
Back in February, Erykah Badu turned 45, and she threw herself a birthday party at the Dallas club Bomb Factory. The great Dave Chappelle goes way back with Badu; she performed in his 2006 concert movie Dave Chappelle’s Block Party. And Chappelle, who looked like he’d had a few drinks, ended up onstage with Badu, doing a joyously tuneless cover of Radiohead’s “Creep.” Badu played MPC drums. (Apparently Chappelle also sang the song at a Portland strip club earlier this year? I don’t know, man.) Anyway, as Noisey points out, Chappelle and Badu’s Radiohead cover has now made its way to the internet, and you can watch it below.
As happy as I am that this exists, I wish Chappelle would’ve attempted the falsetto.
