Dave Chappelle’s Block Party: Unrated

Dave Chappelle’s Block Party

On DVD: 
Tuesday, June 13, 2006
Running Time: 
103 minutes

I was expecting from Dave Chappelle’s Block Party to see line up of performers like Erykah Badu, Kanye West, Dead Prez, Mos Def, The Fugees and for it to blow your mind. I wasn’t wrong about that; but what I didn’t see coming is what made this movie so much more than just live concert footage. There is backstage footage of Dave hanging out with many of the musicians and some warm-up setting stuff up shit too. What is great though is when Dave hits the streets.

Going through various neighborhoods Dave gives out tickets to whoever he meets. He even goes into one couples house and let me tell you that is something that you will want to see, it is hilarious. You’ll also get to hear what some of the lucky few that attended had to say about it and how they got there. So you’ve seen it in theaters well there some shit on here for you too, like the making of, extended music acts, and a look at the Ohio players bus ride.
