Never Scared is the fourth comedy album by Chris Rock. It was recorded at DAR Constitution Hall in Washington, D.C. between March 24 and 26, 2004 for an HBO comedy special,[1] and was released on DVD on August 31, 2004. The CD version, released on February 15, 2005, includes several recorded segments including a rap song performed with Lil' Jon called "Get Lower", and recurring themes of "Thug Radio" and "Tip Your Hat to Whitey". At the conclusion of the album, is a spoof movie trailer titled "Who Tha Fuck You Looking At"; the protagonists are made out to be black men, but the voice-over gives the cast as Steven Seagal, Chingy, Sidney Poitier and the sound of machine guns.

The DVD includes his first HBO special Big Ass Jokes. [2]

Never Scared won the 2006 Grammy Award for Best Comedy Album.

On a separate note, in 2012, a quote from the HBO special was sampled into the rap song "Fair Fight" performed by the group Strong Arm Steady, alongside a number of quotes from Eddie Griffin's DysFUNKtional Family comedy show.
