We were waiting on Hov to make a statement to the press about his ill-timed deal with Barney New York for their holiday collection, as the clothing outlet has fought allegations of racist practices in its stores. Didn’t have to wait very long as Mr. Carter released a statement via his Life and Times outlet. But that wasn’t all. He contacted us with an exclusive freestyle broaching the topics at hand.

File this in the “Why Wasn’t I There?” section. Two of comedy’s biggest names shared the stage early Tuesday morning in an impromptu performance at New York City’s Comedy Cellar. Throughout the week the two have performed separately at the Cellar, trying out new material; Rock because he’s preparing for an new standup special, and Chappelle because…well, who knows, just be thankful he’s still doing standup. After performing solo for about 45 minutes, Dave Chappelle was joined by Chris Rock who took the stage to tell the audience, “Aw, you lucky motherf*ckers.” (more…)
