Chris Rock Felt ‘Invigorated’ by His Dirty Kanye West Skit

Still curious as to how Chris Rock ended up pitching in that awesomely explicit skit on Kanye's "Blame Game"? Rock hasn't spoken much about it, but in the Sunday Times, while discussing his upcoming Broadway play The Motherfucker With the Hat, he sort of offers an explanation: "I did that quicker than I read scripts that they offer me money to do. I thank him so much it probably freaks him out. Especially at this late date, to get on something, the album of the moment, that stuff is priceless, you can’t put a price tag on that. I felt invigorated by it. I’ve still got my fastball." Totally. [NYT]
