Comedian Chris Rock recently conducted an exclusive interview with Vibe in which he discussed fatherhood and his career plans. Rock was also sure to talk about Will Smith and the Saturday Night Live crew.


Rock’s children and the possibility of working in the entertainment industry with them.

“My kids are so young. Kids say they want to do all sorts of things. I loved Karate Kid. And my younger daughter, my God, is obsessed with Willow’s ‘Whip My Hair.’ But it’s nothing I wanna do with my kids right now. I want them to have as normal a childhood as they can have. If they want to get into something after they finish college, fine, but right now, that’s just not me. I’m a big fan of Will and the kids, though. It works. They’re like the Baldwins.”

Still in contact with the old Saturday Night Live crew?

“All the time. It’s no different than anybody else. You know we all go way back, over 20 years.”

Career plans.

“Just trying to keep my spot. Trying to keep up with Jay. Jay came out in ’96 with Reasonable Doubt. That same year, I did Bring the Pain. And I’m still here. There’s a lot of people that have fallen off. I don’t try to think about it. I just ask myself, have I been funny? Am I funny in this play? Can I be funny doing it? I don’t take any of these shots for granted. I get so much feedback from the Kanye skit ‘The Blame Game.’ Same amount of feedback as the last movie I did. You never know what people are gonna respond to.”
