With his Comedy Central show the hottest thing on television, Dave Chappelle threw a Brooklyn block party, inviting neighbors (including people from his Ohio hometown) to enjoy music from the cream of hip-hop and soul performers. Kanye West, Erykah Badu, Jill Scott, Mos Def, The Roots and a reunion of The Fugees are among the all-star line-up, and Chappelle’s hilarious asides help make the good times and sense of community contagious.
