In The Age Of Spin, one of two standup specials Dave Chappelle recently released on Netflix, the comedian discusses a Detroit gig on his 2015 comeback tour when he got so high that he couldn’t properly function on stage, resulting in a round of boos from his understandably irritated audience. “I had smoked some reefer with some rappers,” Chappelle explains in the special. “I don’t know if you know anything about hanging out with rappers, but their weed is very strong. Stronger than I was accustomed to.”
Which rappers, you might wonder? After all, Chappelle has no shortage of musician friends. As Vulture points out, Motor City rapper Danny Brown has taken credit for Chappelle’s intoxication. In an Instagram post, Brown writes, “Haven’t seen Dave new special but heard he gotta bit about that night I got him stoned to the gills … momma I made it!!!” This news is… not surprising.
Brown will continue his interactions with famous comedians today at 5PM, when he’s launching some kind of secret collaboration with Jonah Hill.
