In other news, Dave Chappelle recently stopped by Hot 97's Ebro In The Morning, where he talked about Jay-Z's new album, Kendrick Lamar (who he recently interviewed), Drake, the late Charlie Murphy, Prince, Game of Thrones, R Kelly, and more.
Regarding Jay's new album, Chappelle said: "It's the first time, I think, that a guy of his age can make a relevant record. It's fun to see a genre like hip-hop be mature like this. JAY-Z went to space and came back. He's a billionaire from Brooklyn. I appreciate that. If I had that kind of money you'd never see my ass again."
