It looks as though we all owe Jay and Yeezy another thank you. The success of their collaboration on Watch The Throne (which narrowly avoided taking the top spot as our album of the year) has inspired long-dormant comedians Dave Chappelle and Chris Rock to take the stage together.

Vulture caught up with Rock at Sundance, where he is debuting his Julie Delpy indie 2 Days In New York and the comedian admitted that rumors that him and Chappelle had some validity.

"I've been talking to Chappelle a lot. Been trying to get Chappelle to go on tour," Rock said.

According to Rock, the tour hinges on Chappelle's thumbs up. "You know I'm not the hard one," he said to Vulture, while laughing. "But I'm trying to make that happen. After seeing Kanye and Jay-Z, I was like, 'Me and Dave should do this.'" 

A hot ticket like that? We'd have Ticketmaster on speed dial, because that show would sell out even faster than the WTT tour did.
