A historic day in Brooklyn, the party of a lifetime -- the idea behind the "Dave Chappelle's Block Party" film was simple; America's hottest comedian, Dave Chappelle, went to his small hometown in Ohio to pass out golden tickets, inviting people of all races and ages to join him, his friends and the people of New York for a comedy and musical extravaganza featuring all of the superstar comedian's favorite artists. The celebration caught on film by Academy Award-wining director Michael Gondry turned out to be one of the most important events in music history; the film blends Dave Chappelle's signature style of comedy with performances by today's most progressive urban artists. The film is already accruing rave reviews; Vibe hails it "incredibly important" and GQ labels it "blissful perfection," while Elle affirms "it makes you feel ridiculously hopeful for the human race".
The CD is equally as vibrant and vital. "Dave Chappelle's Block Party" soundtrack is being released on Geffen Records on March 14th and is executive produced by Corey Smith (Blacksmith Music) & Ahmir "?uestlove" Thompson (The Roots). Boasting the music of chart-topping and critically acclaimed superstars like Common, Mos Def, Talib Kweli, Dead Prez, Erykah Badu, Jill Scott, The Roots, Bilal, Big Daddy Kane and Kool G Rap, the "Dave Chappelle's Block Party" soundtrack is a sonic celebration of music and comedy, history and community.
Scheduled to hit stores March 14th 2006.
