    Interesting how the documentary is a balanced view of both sides, yet it seems to be narrated by Neal Brennan.

    Neal also doesn't mind using the "N" word, as it seemed to flow naturally out of his mouth the one time he said it. Not saying anything by him using it, just noticed how common it may have been to forget about the "racial" undertone of the show.

    Makes me think of how some of the younger ones deal with it I suppose, that is until:


    But then Neal goes on to get a bit upset when Dave commented about him not calling or seeing how he was doing since he was claiming he was "sick" or "wasn't ok", responding...

    "If I was so sick then why didn't he call me to see how I was doing?" ...
    "Must be a cultural thing"

    Neal claimed this to be "racist" and I paused... "huh?".

    Mind you, notice who he (Neal) is conducting this interview with.

    Good vid-doc non-the-less, but I feel it had more to do with Neal and what he felt about his contribution to Chappelle's career, than Dave walking away from 50 Million Dollars.

    On a side note, the attempted spin off of "Key and Peele" is so blatant (and awful) that I am not sure how they are still getting renewed.

    Does anyone find their show entertaining?

    Chappelle envy I suppose.

    I was watching this documentary on Richard Pryor the other day.. the parallels between Richard and Chapelle are pretty interesting.. Richard also walked away from his show.. and had a 40 million dollar production deal that seemed to be the cue for his life to fall apart.




    Lets not forget Richard was a conscious dude.. he couldn't handle his personal life.. but he knew what was up.. Check out his skit about Kemet in his 2nd episode..
