Outside of a few comedy documentaries that aired on TV and Inside The Actor’s Studio, it’s been years since comedian Dave Chappelle has made an appearance on television. Last night, Dave broke that streak of sorts and went on The Late Show with David Letterman. Sure, Chappelle has granted a few radio shows an interview here and there and he even co-headlined Funny or Die’s Oddballfestival tour last year, but he has been rarely seen on the small screen since he left for South Africa all those years ago.Having a big return to Radio City Music Hall coming up, a very dapper Chappelle sat down and chatted with Letterman to promote the week of shows and to set the record straight as to what exactly happened with Chappelle’s Show.
For those not familiar (or if you just need a quick refresher), Chappelle’s Showwas one of Comedy Central top rated programs when it was on the air 2003-04. After two seasons, it was so amazingly popular that one could describe its popularity now as “viral”. Comedy Central had reportedly offered Chappelle several millions of dollars for the third season, which he agreed to. They headed into production, then, before the season premiere and seemingly out of nowhere, Dave pulled a “no call no show” and laid low in South Africa for two weeks later explaining that the pressure of the show’s success was getting to him. There was talk of somehow salvaging the third season of Chappelle’s Show and bringing Dave back, but Comedy Central and Dave didn’t come to a mutual agreement. The “Lost Episodes” eventually made it to air without Chappelle hosting, but nothing more came after that.

All these years later, Dave tells Letterman, “Technically, I never quit,” and shed a little light as to the complexity surrounding his exit from the show. Chappelle even comments that he ponders on how things might have been different and how he possibly could have been happier if he stayed.

Where do you think Dave Chappelle will go from here? Those performances coming up at Radio City Music Hall could go amazingly well and the sky, yet again, could be the limit for Dave. Let us know in the comments below.

Exclusive Interview: 804 Street Media CEO Lance Cooper

Last week, the staff of WITIN RADIO had the opportunity to meet with 804 Street Media CEO & Editor In Chief , Lance Cooper.During the interview we had the opportunity to speak with Lance on his life's work, his company's Social Media presence, and the state of Black America.

When did you launch 804 Street Media & what was the catalyst for you launching 804 Street Media ?

"The official brand evolved into a business around 2013, but the grind to put the 804 (Richmond. Virginia) on the map started back in the 1990’s. Everything started with hip-hop. In 1997 I had a rap group here in Richmond. Virginia was on the rise, we were actually the only rap group from Richmond to share a stage with Nas. This was around the time "It Was Written" dropped. Eventually, however the group parted ways. I put the microphone down and started promoting other artists. Coming from one of  the hardest places to "get on" from is Virginia, because support on every level…
