Happy Birthday Rick!
Today, Rick James would have been 63 years old. He passed away back in August of 2004, it’s hard to believe that it was that long ago. Dave Chappelle made Rick James a little more popular before he passed away on Comedy Central’s Chappelle’s Show. Dave had a segment called “Charlie Murphy’s True Hollywood Stories,” which featured skits about the life of Rick, Charlie and Eddie Murphy. Digital and I did a montage of “Rick James” back in the day and being that today is Rick’s birthday, I played it in the HMP and decided to get it here on the website.
