About

"Nice Place, Nigga" is a memorable quote uttered by the character Rick James from the episode "Charlie Murphy's True Hollywood Stories" of the American sketch comedy series Chappelle's Show. Online, a screen capture of the phrase being said has been used to express a cryptic threat to location or object.

Origin

On February 11th, 2004, the "Charlie's Murphy True Hollywood Stories" episode of Chappelle's Show aired.[1] In the episode, Rick James (portrayed by Dave Chappelle) harasses his friend Charlie Murphy and enters his home and says the line before destroying Murphy's couch.

Nine years later, on January 15th, 2013, a clip of the line was published to YouTube by YouTuber Mike Hunt (shown below). The post received more than 52,000 views in nearly six years.



Spread

Three years later, on January 9th, 2016, Tenor user Crisphavana posted a GIF of the moment.[2] Several months later, on March 5th, Imgur user orangedrink518 posted the GIF with the caption "Leaving Tumblr to join Imgur." The post received more than 3,600 points and 11,000 views in nearly three years (shown below, left).

Later that year, a variation of the meme, in which the image is used as a reaction image was posted on Instagram. The earliest known variation, which contains the caption "When I find an Instagram page that I can fuck with," was scrapped by me.me on December 16th, 2016 and received more than 4,100 likes before removal (shown below, center).[3]

On November 12th, 2018, Redditor [4] AnimeTiddiess posted a photoshopped version of the image. They captioned the post with a joke about the Anti-Vaccination movement. The post received more than 5,500 points (98% upvoted) in 24 hours (shown below, right).
