The Emancipation of Dave Chappelle

This is an experimental fiction story inspired by my being a Dave Chappelle fan. I experimented by taking the creation of an artist (Chappelle’s Tyrone Biggums), a movie title (Hollywood Shuffle), a rapper’s lyrics (J.Cole’s “Love Yourz”) and a piece of art, Emancipation by George Nock and weaving them together to tell one story about Chappelle. I used the art form of erasure (found poetry or art created by erasing an existing text) on J. Cole’s lyrics.
