Comedy Beef: Mike Epps Shades Chris Rock
Chris Rock has remained relatively beef-free when it comes to his long standing career, but that comes as no surprise. He's one of the funniest, humble and most successful comedians of our time, paving the way for younger comics to make it. But apparently Mike Epps doesn't feel our sentiments about the stand up comedian, as Mike Epps shades Chris Rock's movie Top Five in a recent interview on The Tom Joyner Morning show.
When asked about Rock's latest movie, Top Five, Epps didn't hold his tongue on his thoughts of Rock's choice of comedians.
“I haven’t seen it. I don’t know why they called it Top Five there wasn’t one good comedian in the whole movie. I don’t know why they keep giving Chris Rock opportunities. He’s great at stand up and a good Meerkat.. When do these white people-they’re blind. They keep giving the wrong dude opportunities.”
Why was Epps' panties in a bunch? He has an awesome year coming up. He landed the highly sought after role of Richard Pryor in the Lee Daniels-directed biopic and he will return to play Uncle Julius in season two of the Starz's original series Survivors Remorse.
