RIP Charlie Murphy


Murphy, a comedian known for telling stories about Rick James and Prince on “Chappelle’s Show” and the brother of Eddie Murphy, died on Wednesday following a battle with leukemia. He reportedly kept his illness so under wraps that he didn’t even tell his co-stars on “Power.” Despite the secrecy, the final tweet from Murphy’s Twitter account speaks volumes.

Sent the night before he died, Murphy wrote, “One to Sleep On: Release the past to rest as deeply as possible.”

Murphy’s account supposedly sent out another tweet the next morning, but it was deleted. (It may have been scrubbed because it’s a quote misattributed to Abraham Lincoln.)  

The comedian was consistently active on Twitter, regularly sending out inspirational messages starting with “Rise & Grind” and “One to Sleep On.” 

One of the most popular “Chappelle’s Show” sketches was Murphy telling a story about getting smoked by Prince in basketball.
