DL Hughley didn’t do well in school and was put in special ed classes
Radio Facts: What kind of student were you in school?
DL: I was horrible. I was definitely horrible.
Radio Facts: Class clown?
DL: Yeah, but I was a class clown because I was afraid.
Radio Facts: What were you afraid of?
DL: Uh, people knowing that I was inadequate. People knowing when I didn’t know the answer. That’s all it was, man. And it’s one of my greatest regrets because I like learning, but I pretended like I didn’t because I didn’t learn like everybody else. I like learning.
Radio Facts: Did they ever put you in the special classes?
Radio Facts: I was in the special class too. I don’t admit that too readily. But I hated public school. I was too creative and distracted.
DL: I don’t know if I was creative, Kevin. But I’ll tell you what, I would be in that class saying I don’t belong here. I don’t belong here.
