Here’s a Playlist of Some of the Best Chappelle Show Performances (Video Playlist)

Chappelle Show gets its much deserved props for its place in sketch comedy history, but it does not get enough recognition for its role as a major platform for showcasing hip-hop and soul performances. In addition to having impeccable taste in acts, the show had a knack for presenting artists in unusual settings that made the performances stand out all the more. Here’s a video playlist showcasing many of these classic Chappelle Show performances. You’ll find music by Kanye West, Common, Mos Def, Freeway, Erykah Badu, De La Soul, Slum Village, Talib Kweli, The Roots and more. Common’s performance with Kanye West was not available on YouTube, so we included it as a standalone video below. Check ’em out. Props to T-Noce for the inspiration.
