We can all agree that DC Young Fly is a man of many talents. From comedy, music, and acting there’s literally nothing he can’t do that we wouldn’t be proud of. However he’s always been vocal about his work ethic and how he’d rather work for his than to have anything given to him.

Following the success of the hilarious and long awaited Coming 2 America film currently sweeping the nation with views, a fan took to Twitter advocating that DC should’ve played the role of Eddie Murphy ‘s son.

With both humility and realness DC responded by saying, “I auditioned for it 2x !!!” he wrote. “Came down to the final 3!!! Salute to who got the job tho [100 emoji]!! #PromiseMyTimeComing gotta stay hungry working and having patience.”
