“Technically, I never quit. I’m seven years late for work,” Chappelle told Letterman, according to the Daily Beast.
The late-show host also asked about the comedian walking away from the $50 million paycheck that went with the show, to which Chappelle answered, “The only difference between having $10 million and $50 million is an astounding $40 million!”
During the interview, Chappelle also revealed that he only stayed in South Africa for 2 weeks.
When asked further about his past decision to turn down the money, Chappelle simply stated that, “Money is the fuel for choices” and that there are things in his life that he didn’t “purchase with money that are more valuable.”
Rapper Nas will be joining Chappelle for his June 23 show.
