Before he was an A-list actor, sex symbol and deejay, Idris Elba was apparently a grass pusher. That’s the claim funny man Dave Chappelle is making in an interview with GQ magazine. The comedian joked that back in the day, Elba used to be his New York weed supplier.
“Oh, okay. So he used to work at Carolines. During that era of my life, there’s a high possibility that I bought reefer from Idris,” Chappelle joked. “Fast-forward to when I was doing Chappelle’s Show, Idris would come by set sometimes … There’s a lot of women who used to work on the show … all very professional, with the single exception when Idris would come around … [They] would just lose their goddamn minds.”
