  • (saxophone and drums play upbeat jazz)

  • Hi. Welcome to "CP Time,"

  • the only show that's for the culture.

  • Today, we'll be talking about the history

  • of black entertainers.

  • I know these days, you can see black performers

  • on all the biggest stages--

  • the MTV Awards, the Grammys,

  • and even on Broadway.

  • I once paid $1,000 for tickets to see Hamilton.

  • Turns out they was a fake.

  • Apparently, they don't print Broadway tickets

  • on the back of Jamba Juice receipts.

  • -(laughter) -Lesson learned.

  • But what a lot of people don't know is that back in the day,

  • the biggest stages and best venues

  • only allowed white performers,

  • and so, many black performers actually got their start

  • on the Chitlin' Circuit, which was the name given

  • to a network of theaters and clubs

  • where black performers could play for black audiences.

  • It was like BET, but without all the Martin reruns.

  • (laughter)

  • The Chitlin' Circuit was first established

  • in Indianapolis by Denver Ferguson,

  • a man who looks like Chris Rock

  • in the new season of Fargo.

  • Ferguson started the Chitlin' Circuit

  • as a way to launder money from illegal lottery games,

  • but it unexpectedly became a huge success.

  • That's right-- by trying to break the law,

  • Ferguson accidentally started an artistic revolution.

  • It was like the time I tried

  • to vandalize my ex-wife's apartment

  • and ended up launching the Street Art Movement.

  • -Banksy, my ass. -(laughter)

  • The Chitlin' Circuit went on to launch the careers of legends,

  • like Aretha Franklin, Marvin Gaye and Duke Ellington.

  • Without Duke Ellington,

  • we we wouldn't have legends like Kenny G.

  • The boy may look funny,

  • but I made all my favorite children

  • -to the sound of his saxophone. -♪ ♪

  • "G" is for "Goddamn, that's smooth!"

  • Mm.

  • I actually have tickets to see Kenny G this weekend.

  • Oh, wait. These are for Lenny G.

  • Ain't that a bit...

  • I got to stop buying my tickets from Uber drivers.

  • They're good seats, though.

  • The Chitlin' Circuit also launched one

  • of the biggest crossover artists of all time--

  • Little Richard.

  • We all remember his smash hit "Tutti Frutti."

  • Everyone was singing...

  • "A whop bop buh-lubap buh-whop bam boom."

  • But what you might not know is that Little Richard had

  • to rewrite the original lyrics to "Tutti Frutti"

  • to make them less sexually-charged

  • for white audiences.

  • The original lyrics to the song went like this.

  • These are the real lyrics.

  • "Tutti frutti, good booty.

  • "If it don't fit, don't force it.

  • You can grease..."

  • Goddamn, Little Richard!

  • You're filthy.

  • -And I like it. -(laughter)

  • Another man who was vital to the success

  • of the Chitlin' Circuit was Don Robey,

  • a music promoter and the first black music mogul.

  • Unfortunately, Robey did not have the best reputation.

  • He was known as the "Gangster of Gospel,"

  • because on several occasions,

  • he pulled a gun on gospel artists

  • and demanded their publishing rights.

  • That's right.

  • He held up gospel singers.

  • In fact, that's where gospel singers got this move from.

  • "Uh-uh."

  • Lord, Lord, Jesus. ♪

  • Don Robey's ruthless business tactics paved the way

  • for black record moguls like Suge Knight,

  • a man who I have nothing bad to say about,

  • because I do not like being murdered.

  • That's all the time we have for today.

  • I'm Roy Wood Jr.

  • This has been "CP Time."

  • Remember, we're for the culture.

  • And here to play us out,

  • the one and only... Lenny G!

  • Hit it, Lenny.

  • -(playing upbeat, smooth jazz) -Mmm.

  • Oh, I feel another baby coming on!

  • -♪ ♪ -(cheers and applause)
