I almost thought about not coming tonight, but my band was like, ‘Yo, Prince would definitely not condone that.” The band played a Prince tribute playlist and Chapelle eventually took out a tambourine featuring Prince's symbol and joined in on the fun, according to reports. It's hard to deny Dave Chappelle's relationship with Prince. Ever since The Chappelle's Show, Dave Chappelle will always be associated with Prince because of his Charlie Murphy "True Hollywood Story" sketch about the musician's incredible basketball skills on the court. It was so popular that even Prince used Dave Chapelle's image for a cover of the song Breakfast Can Wait. Related: Remember When Prince Kicked Kim Kardashian Offstage?

I’ll tell you what: I didn’t know him well, but I knew him well...It’s so much better that we grieve together.”
