Dave Chappelle’s Block Party (2005)
All of them will be on stage TOGETHER!
I’m about to have a SERIOUS stan moment tonight. I foresee it.
Hope some parents let their kids stay up past bedtime last night. “Late Night With Jimmy Fallon” assembled an impressive crew of characters to perform alongside the cast of the Nick. Jr. show “Yo Gabba Gabba!”.
Erykah Badu, Bootsy Collins, the Roots, Biz Markie and the Yo Gabba Gabba! characters, all decked out in colorful costumes, played the new song “We’re Gonna Party Today”. The results were pretty spectacular.
