Message from renowned comedian Faizon to Dave
“White people built Dave. For a fact, he’s never made n***as laugh. The first season [of Dave Chappelle’s Show] was wack. It wasn’t until the second season once Charlie Murphy started writing. That’s when you started seeing the Rick James and all the other fly stuff.”
