Dave Chapelle brings us documentary footage from his summer 2004 block party in Brooklyn, New York. There isn’t much to analyze about this movie, because it is what it is: Dave’s favorite artists assembled together in the name of good old-fashioned REAL music. I think it’s cool that Dave documented the concert/party because it shows that the music he appreciates is a reflection of what he believes in: an expression of truth at all costs. We know Dave is a straight shooter and that he pulls no punches, and this is mirrored by the musical company he keeps: Dead Prez, Common, Jill Scott, Badu, etc. We also see how Chapelle is a man of the people, both black and white. The concert was a soulful celebration of real music and black culture and quite simply just a dope-ass show. I love watching us do our thing, I wish I could’ve been at the show, it looks like it was epic for the Fugees alone. Even though Chapelle has a huge following on Comedy Central, I don’t expect this movie to be a commercial success because it’s not Dave doing comedy, it’s about the music and Dave giving back to the people. Everybody can’t get with that. If you liked Jay-Z’s Fade to Black, you definitely should show Chapelle some love because Block Party is much better.
