Chappelle plays Prince on new single's cover

Forget Rick James. He’s Prince, bi – uh, baby. (Sorry, this is a family website.)

Dave Chappelle, who’s suddenly everywhere again (and welcome back, sir!), is on the cover of the latest Prince single, “Breakfast Can Wait.” It’s only fitting, given that the Purple One, like Chappelle, is also known for his reclusiveness and inscrutability – and, thanks to a new Twitter account, is suddenly back in the media swim.

The cover of “Breakfast Can Wait” features Chappelle in his “Chappelle’s Show” Prince regalia, holding a plate of pancakes. It’s no “Breakfast in America,” but in this MP3 age, it’s all about the music anyway, right?

And the music, given the short sample that's been posted, sounds like Prince at his funky best.


We look forward to a rematch of Shirts vs. Blouses.

    Well, this is a sad development. Chris Rock is a brazen racist, and another black racist comedian? His bread and butter was satire of stereotypes, but he had some really heartfelt hateful words when he wasn't trying to be funny, against asians, whites, latinos... Alot of prominent black leadership have mainstreamed black racism. It's become normal and acceptable. I haven't missed Chappelle since his comedy central meltdown. Apparently he's running out of money.

      Well you're wrong. He actually owns land and a rather simple home outside of Dayton, OH. He lives literally in the middle of nowhere with his wife and child. Everything he has is paid for and he had plenty of money in the bank in case he ever wanted (and did) to just say forget it and walk away. And lets be perfectly honest, everyone has at least a hint of racism in them. Though I do find it funny when minorities and whites accuse each other of being racist when they both in fact are to varying degrees.

      I am tired of racism also. It's a silent killer, like diabetes. Many people have it & don't know it. For example the way you pointed out Chris Rock & David Chapelle as yet another "Black" racist comedian. What does the fact that they are both black have to do with anything?

      Hey Dead Wrong,
      Dayton is not "the middle of nowhere". it's not a huge town, but it's still not *that* small. The rest of the internet has gotten together and decided that you aren't allowed to use the word "literally" anymore.
