Jay-Z and Kanye West might be atop the music business, but as a duo they’ve got nothing on comedic titans Chris Rock and Dave Chappelle.
According to Rock, the two stand-up icons have been in talks to hit the road together.
“I’ve been talking to Chappelle a lot,” Rock told New York magazine's Vulture at the Sundance Film Festival. “Been trying to get Chappelle to go on tour.”
Rock shared this news while doing press for his new flick, “What To Expect When You’re Expecting,” and of course it's been Chappelle who has been all but missing from spotlight.
Aside from an interview with a San Francisco radio station in August, rumors running wild about a “Chappelle Show” return and secret gigs throughout the country, the man himself has more or less stayed out of the spotlight.
Perhaps Rock - and a little inspiration from Jay-Z and Kanye’s platinum collaborative album, “Watch the Throne” - will pull Chappelle out of work limbo.
“You know I’m not the hard one,” Rock joked. “I’m trying to make that happen. After seeing Kanye and Jay-Z, I was like, ‘Me and Dave should do this.’”
Something we all agree would be "cray" - if it comes to pass.
