#StandForSomething #OrFallForAnything: The Dave Chappelle Compelling Lifestyle

(Go Down)
11 years ago, Dave Chappelle had a SMASHING hit tv show. He signed a very lucrative $50 million deal, and just a short time later.......he quit the show and completely disappeared in Africa..

Everyone....including Oprah thought that he was NUTS. What young black guy walks away from $50 million?

Chappelle later explained that he had very young kids at the time. He was not comfortable with the sudden fame and media attention. He wanted to live a normal and quiet life on his farm in Yellow Springs, Ohio with his family.

In addition, he was also being asked to do things that violated his personal values.....like wearing dresses for laughs.

Fast forward 11 years. Chappelle has just signed a new $60 million deal with Netflix!
