  • Coca*ne's a hell of a drug

    Charlie Murphy's True Hollywood Stories Rick James

    so funny

    you got 2 watch it.

    Charlie Murphy (who also wrote the sketch) retells events of the 1980s, the most popular being the Rick James story with Murphy as himself and Chappelle as James, including incidents such as James slapping Murphy and Murphy retaliating. The sketch is interspersed with present-day scenes of the real Rick James explaining his past behavior, saying, "Coca*ne's a hell of a drug" and babbling incoherently. The sketch spawned one of the show's popular catchphrases, "I'm Rick James, b*tch!", which Chappelle as James repeatedly declares. Being split into parts, it is the longest skit to be featured on the show.
