Dave Chappelle continues on the comeback trail with a few comedy specials set to premiere on Netflix. Get the details on Dave’s newest project, plus why Birdman ended settlement proceedings with Lil Wayne inside…
Don’t call it call back! Even though it totally is.
After his epic (and highly-rated) post-election “SNL” episode, Dave Chappelle will be bringing the laughs on Netflix.
The funnyman will premiere an all-new stand-up special, according to Deadline. In fact, the streaming service announced three new specials are coming down the pipeline. And they’ll be here in 2017.
While details are still limited, entertainment and media reporter Lucas Shaw tweeted that one of the specials will include footage from his recent tour and the other two specials will be footage from his “personal comedy vault.”

We're SO here for this.
In legal news…
Birdman is all in his feelings, so much so, he called off the settlement process with Lil Wayne over that multi-million lawsuit.
So what got Birdman upset? Well, remember when Weezy changed the lyrics to his track “I’m Me” during a concert last week, alluding to inking a record deal with Jay Z? Yeah, that didn’t go over too well with Birdman.
Apparently, Birdman has some beef with Hov. Weezy put the icing on the cake when he yelled “suck my d*ck” at the end of his performance. So, he shut down shop. No settlement.
Damn it, man.
Since launching his lawsuit, Wayne has been vocal about his feelings towards Birdman, revealing recently that he would never work with him again.
