* NotMakingThisUpDisclaimer: As Charlie Murphy tells his Prince and Rick James stories, he has to insert that he's not lying. It helps that both Prince and Rick James have confirmed the stories, albeit just tweaked for comedic effect as well as their own idea of the events.

* HonorBeforeReason: During the "World Series of Dice" skit, a gang led by Rodney "Quills" Dinkins breaks in to the game with the intent to rob the players and spectators. {{The stoic}} Leonard Washington is not fazed, and refuses to hand over his money.
-->'''Dinkins:''' What you waitin' for, cool breeze?! Get butt naked right now! Get it off, son!\\
'''Washington:''' First of all, you better check your tone with me, man. I don't think you know who you talkin' to. I'm Leonard Washington. I don't get butt naked for nobody. You want this roll, nigga? You gonna have to shoot me.\\
'''Dinkins:''' ''[deadpan]'' Okay. ''[casually shoots Leonard in the kneecap and takes the money out of his hands]''

** This is also true of Charlie Murphy's ''True Hollywood Stories''. While the tales themselves are over exaggerated to the extreme for the show, many of the actual events mentioned in Charlie Murphy's monologues were confirmed by both Prince and Rick James in interviews (Rick James even confirmed the Prince story in unreleased interview footage from his episode).

* SuspiciouslySpecificDenial: Tupac's latest hit which ''was'' definitely written in 1994. [[BadLiar No doubt about it.]]

* UpToEleven: One sketch played with the theory that Tupac Shakur is still alive, since so many "posthumous" albums have been released since his alleged death. A new Tupac song plays in a club, and the lyrics make reference to numerous occurrences that took place after 1996 (the year he was fatally shot). Eventually, the song takes it to another level, as Tupac raps about things that are happening ''in the club the song is playing in'' ("The girl in the miniskirt has bad taste / 'cuz that shirt don't match / there's a puddin' stain on the back"). And no, it's not a live performance.



* WeUsedToBeFriends: Co-creator and co-writer Neal Brennan was [[http://www.time.com/time/question/farley_question.html not]] [[http://thebosh.com/archives/2006/06/neal_brennan_talks_about_dave_chappelle.php happy]] [[http://www.nytimes.com/2009/08/09/movies/09eels.html at all]] about the way Chappelle ended the show. Though, recently, on his podcast, TheChamps, he's made a point of referring to Dave as "my friend" and talking about their collaboration fondly.

** There was also a sketch showing what would happen if people really did "keep it real." The answer? Lotta prison time, lotta beatings.

** The entire sketch had a much darker origin, as a TakeThat against MTV and the producers of The Real World. Dave Chappelle is close friends with Dave Edwards, a comedian who was kicked out of the second incarnation of TheRealWorld under similar circumstances.
