In a popular episode, Charlie Murphy (who also wrote the sketch) retells events of the 1980s, the most popular being the Rick James story with Murphy as himself and Chappelle as James, including incidents such as James punching Murphy in the forehead, resulting in a reverse imprint of the word UNITY on it, and Murphy retaliating. The sketch is interspersed with present-day scenes of the real Rick James explaining his past behavior, saying, \"Cocaine\'s a hell of a drug!\" The sketch spawned one of the show\'s popular catchphrases, \"I\'m Rick James, bitch!\", which Chappelle as James repeatedly declares. Being split into parts, it is the longest skit to be featured on the show.
The incident in the sketch in which Rick James grinds his muddy boots on Eddie Murphy\'s couch was made into a song, twice, entitled \"Fuck Yo\' Couch\". One song was made by a rap group in Chicago, while another was made by Champ Bailey, from the San Francisco Bay Area. Both songs make multiple references to the sketch.
The sketch attained even greater public attention when, in 2004, a candidate for city council in Hattiesburg, Mississippi, also named Rick James but unrelated to the singer, had many of his \"Vote Rick James\" campaign signs defaced or stolen by fans of the sketch.
A later version of Charlie Murphy\'s True Hollywood Stories involves Murphy, his brother Eddie and their entourage visiting Prince (Chappelle) and playing an impromptu basketball game. Murphy and his friends are initially skeptical of The Revolution\'s basketball skills, naming the Revolution team \"the blouses\" because of their flamboyant clothing, but they\'re soundly beaten by Prince. Among the reasons they were beaten were an underestimation of Prince\'s basketball skills and a diversion strategy where members of the Revolution would grope and fondle Charlie Murphy when the latter tries to guard Prince. At the end of the game Prince reverse dunks and says \"Game, blouses.\" After obliterating Charlie Murphy and his crew in the basketball game, Prince then invites them in for pancakes. Throughout the sketch, Chappelle does an imitation of Prince\'s deadpan style of speaking. They also make reference to Micki Free and Shalamar.
