“When I was in Europe I would play this game for hours and hours… it helped me zone out.

No. Uh uh, I can’t. I can’t. ‘Cause, I’m at the Dave Chappelle show watching sketches that nobody’s ever seen before." And then he says, ‘Cause my life is dope, and I do dope shit,’ and then he hung up the phone."" — Dave Chappelle on Kanye West (via alcoholicgifts)
