Charlie Murphy passed today at the age of 57. Leukemia. Charlie Murphy’s friendship with Rick James was the subject of skits on Dave Chappelle’s show years ago. A lot of the stories didn’t make it to TV. Charlie’s story about Prince is legendary. Prince co-signed it and said it was true. Charlie was also once his brother, Eddie Murphy’s bodyguard. And he’d pick fights with people who didn’t laugh at Eddie’s jokes. Rest in Peace Charlie Murphy. More here.
