I'm so sad about this. I grew up watching a lot of his work but I watched The Wayans Bros all the time and he was like my second Pops. I actually called my dad this morning because I have so many memories of watching that show with him and we spoke for like 20 minutes.

this is the extended cut, but I like the original/shorter version where he starts bitching about Craig eating everything and he goes "all the chicken, all the pigs feet, all the collard greens, all the hog maws, I WANNA EAT SOME OF THEM CHITLINS I LOVE PIGS FEET!"

For some reason when I was a kid, this scene with him eating grapes always cracked me up the most. Probably because I was too young to really understand the movie, lol.

I was really sad when I heard this. He made Robert from 'The Boondocks'

RIP
