Dave Chappelle blames 'strong reefer' for poor 2015 Detroit performance

On April 23, 2015, comedian Dave Chappelle was booed during a performance at the Filmore in Detroit for apparently being drunk on stage.

In The Age of Spin, a new stand-up comedy special released this week on Netflix, Chappelle reveals what actually happened that night. He wasn't drunk. He was high.

"If you saw it, I wasn't drunk. I had smoked some reefer with some rappers," he said at the beginning of the show. "I don't know if you know anything about hanging out with rappers, but their weed is very strong. Stronger than I was accustomed to."

He also joked about not refunding attendees for the bad show.

"I'm like Evil Knievel, I get paid for the attempt," he said. "I didn't promise this (expletive) would be good."

But now our question is: which rappers?
