To be fair, the Dave Chappelle/Charlie Murphy skit is funny as shit, but when it comes to honoring James' music it takes a little more style and finesse. James passed away on August 6, 2004, and to mark the occasion Phoenix rapper Mr. Miranda is commemorating the date with the release of a tribute album.
