Over at DC9, music editor Pete Freedman -- who I will stop calling "the new guy" in, like, a year -- brings word that last night's Erykah Badu release party-birthday throwdown brought in an extra extra-special guest: some dude named Dave Chappelle, who apparently comes out of hiding only at Badu's beckoning. (While back, he also showed at her Black Forest Theatre, though staying for the most part hidden in the wings.) Of course, they're old pals: She rocked his Block Party, as evidenced by the clip above. --Robert Wilonsky
