Jun 9 - Epps slams Chappelle
 

 
Epps slams Chappelle for using white writers and not being a crackhead.

I suppose everyone has their theories about what happened to Dave Chapelle in the weeks leading up to the delay of the third season of Chappelle's Show and his now infamous trip to Africa.


At a recent press day for The Honeymooners, comedian Mike Epps took it a step further, committing his opinion to record in front of a room full of journalists in which IGN FilmForce was present.

The subject came up when Epps mentioned his worries about playing Richard Pryor in a potential upcoming project directed by Walter Hill. Someone asked whether his stress compared to Chappelle's and Epps laughed, snapping into a response. "You know, coming from where I come from, I'm already crazy. S**t. You ain't got to worry about me going. I'm crazy, straight up. I done seen the psychiatrist, I been on the little pills or whatever they got. You know what I'm saying? I'm for real. He just goin' through some new s**t. This is him going through his. I thank God I been through mine at an early age. Going through it and being on drugs. I went crazy after Next Friday because certain things overwhelm us, man. That's overwhelming…

"I don't think he came from the background I came from. I don't think that. But my background. Everything around me is failure. You know what I mean? Trash in the alley. I got eight brothers and we all got damn near different daddies. I come from a real welfare family, you know mother struggling. My grandmother was the same way… So that alone, for you to come out in Hollywood and get in a movie will overwhelm the s**t out of you, if you from that. Now, you give me 50 million dollars, I ain't gonna go crazy. I'm gonna go to the mall and go and get some new cars, I'm about to go and put my momma in a new house, I'm about to give some of these kids in the community some money. That's all he should have did… Just give some of that money to the kids, and that will bring you right back… You'll realize that that's what that's for, is to share it, and you won't go crazy.

"The thing about it is, the material he was doing wasn't him. He don't come from no crackheads on the streets and s**t. You can't talk about black people like that and you don't even represent that. You don't come into the community and kick it with black kids. You got white writers on your show. You got white boys writing, talking about black people on the show, you know what I'm saying? You got Oprah lashing out at him. Not only that, you got people comparing him to Richard Pryor, so once you got that on you right there, and you ain't even came from what Richard Pryor came from, it look like you done tricked a bunch of motherf******, that's what it look like, and now you can't follow yourself, because you got that material from some other people. Charlie Murphy and them did all that. I remember the show blowing up from, 'I'm rich, bi*ch' and James Brown and Rick James and all that.

"What I really think, true heart to heart, is that you only as good as your last s**t. That go for me, Cedric [the Entertainer], everybody in this business. You only as good as your last s**t. If you do good the last time I see you, I'm still good with you, but you gotta follow everything you do…"

That was some real talk, I feel both sides of the coin on this topic. Dave is under a lot of pressure so I can't understand how he feels, but on the other hand you have been given $50 million dollars so you have to man up and deal with the sh*t. And what Mike said about giving to the community is a very good idea also. It has so many hungry black kids in the ghetto eating Ramen Noodles three times a day while their mother doing all kinds sh*t to keep them straight.

The only part I didn't agree with was about the white writers, like wtf does them being white have to do with the statement you're making, but other than that I felt him

sh*t is retarded... Epps is right on some sh*t... but how r u gonna talk about somebody and u dont know what theyve been through... puttin Chappelle on blast like that was fu*kd up... he's not from DC he just used to live there... really he's from Idaho or Ohio or somethin like that... but still thats a funny fu*ker... I think Chappelles funnier than Epps and Epps is just tryna get his publicity...

mike epps was on point about why dave melted down. He ain't built like that. dave's a funny dude and all but do you think you would watch Chappelle show if Charlie Murphy
and all those other funny cats weren't on there.

Some Of my comments might be inpartial cuz a black cat tried 2 get me fired earlier this week.We need 2 stick together as a people n help out follow man instead of downin the next.


To me seems like Epps could have been more supported. I mean nobody really knows all the facts or how dave is/was feeling. Comedy Central nor him really discussed whats gonna happen with the show. If nething it seems he was tryin take back control of the show. Almost like the budden situation doesnt wanna rush n give a crappy product cuz thats his career on the line.I know he feelin pressure cuz everybody knows people love u one min but later hate u either cuz they feel u lost in the game or someone else comes along,etc. I feel Mike 2 a certain extent but i dont think Chappelle denied co writiting with the white dude. I dont even know nething bout the white dude.Rich or poor as a black person u go through hard times far as racism n other sh*t. Epps sh*t also could have been miswrittened 2 fit the writers views. I feel we all fake it at times 2 get by,get ahead,deal with stress etc etc. Far as Giving back that koo but Epps only mentioned helpin his moms. We dont knows how much he really givin back 2 the community. I wouldnt just give my money out either way cuz sometime the charities are shady. U have 2 see where ur money is really going. I think some comments r jealously made. Dave been gettin compared the pryor but that no surpise when u have paul monuney(sp) round u. I peeped Chappelle since k!llin them softly. sh*t still funny. Far as I know he always tried 2 keep his comedy routine n the show seperate. Even without the show he would still be successful makin hella money.
