To celebrate the 15th anniversary of the theatrical release of Dave Chappelle’s Block Party, we dug up some little-known facts about the documentary.
10. Kanye West was the only headliner that wasn’t interviewed
Kanye West may lack a lot of things but he has always been overflowing with self-confidence. Watching the film, you can just feel that Kanye knew that he was on his way to becoming one of the biggest stars on the planet. Being backed by the Central State University Marching Band, his performance of “Jesus Walks” was almost a coronation of West as the “next one.”Interestingly, there is no interview with Kanye West during the film. Can you imagine what Kanye would have been talking about? What would have said about being the opening act? The film captures Kanye West in the midst of his ascendancy into megastardom but we don’t get to hear his thoughts about the historic night.
