Stand-up Comedian Dave Chappelle Received $25K Worth Of Diamond & Gold Chain From Trae Tha Truth
American stand-up comedian and actor Dave Chappelle who is known for his satirical comedy sketch series Chappelle’s Show (2003–2006), which he starred in until quitting in the middle of production during the third season. After a hiatus, Chappelle returned to performing stand-up comedy across the U.S. By 2006, Chappelle was called the “comic genius of America” by Esquire and, in 2013, “the best” by a Billboard writer. In 2017, Rolling Stone ranked him No. 9 in their “50 Best Stand Up Comics of All Time”.
After he was accused of (and later caught on camera) jumping Z-Ro along with a group of other men during 50 Cent’s Tycoon Weekend in Houston, Trae Tha Truth is doing his part to clean up his public image by surprising one of his good friends with a seriously incredible gift.
One of the most distinctive voices in Houston rap, even if he never broke through to the degree of his class-of-2005 contemporaries Trae Tha Truth was recently in L.A. when he surprised the legendary comedian with the custom pendant, straight from famed H-Town jeweler Iceman Nick, according to TMZ.
It’s been said that the flashy piece was made of 15 carats of VS quality diamonds and is valued at $25,000. Though it seems like a massive gift to your average person, Trae noted that the chain was intended to be a small gesture, as “Dave already has everything money can buy.”

Dave Chappelle was overcome with obvious surprise as he opened the box, revealing that he didn’t yet have a logo chain in his own collection. He graciously thanked the “Here I Go” hitmaker for thinking of him before accepting the thoughtful present.
The stand-up comedian has been spending plenty of time on the road touring as of late, and over the years, Trae has stepped out to support his friend on more than one occasion.
Dave and Trae have been friends for several years. Trae regularly shows out to support when Dave is touring around the country, as he is now.
On top of that, the Texas-born recording artist’s Relief Gang charity just did their part to aid folks in Jackson, Mississippi who have been struggling with contaminated pipes by delivering clean water to them.
In a far less kind gesture he helped hand out a certified beatdown to his former rapping partner Z-Ro a couple of weeks back but according to Boosie Badazz, J. Prince’s mediation skills have been activated to squash that beef.
