April 21, 2017 marks one year since we lost Prince.
Not only was his music legendary, his off stage persona was too.
One of my favourite Prince stories comes from Dave Chappelle who was a guest on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon back in the summer of 2014. They were discussing Prince’s cover art for his single “Breakfast Can Wait” which features Chappelle dressed as Prince from a Chappelle’s Show sketch. Dave put it best saying,
“That’s a Prince judo move right there. … You make fun of Prince in a sketch and he’ll just use you in his album cover. What am I going to do — sue him for using a picture of me dressed up like him? … That’s checkmate right there.”
