Yeaaaaaahhhhhhhh Boyyyyyyyyy! You know what time it is. It's the right time for the man who co-founded pioneering rap group Public Enemy and is currently star of VH1's top-rated Flavor of Love series. The one and only Flavor Flav will release his self-titled first-ever solo album
The Roosevelt, L.I.-born hip-hop icon (real name: William Jonathan Drayton Jr.) plays virtually all the instruments, co-writes some of the music and lyrics as well as co-produces with collaborators like Smooth B. and Collition.
Flav first met Chuck D while rapping at Adelphi University under the name MC DJ Flavor. The two formed Public Enemy with DJ Terminator X and Professor Griff to release their debut Yo! Bum Rush the Show in 1987, '88's It Takes a Nation of Millions... and '90's Fear of a Black Planet. Flavor took center stage on such classic PE numbers as "Too Much Posse," "Cold Lampin' With Flavor" and "911 is a Joke," as well as the 1998 title song to Spike Lee's He Got Game.
He went on to appear in the third season of The Surreal Life on VH1 in 2004, then on two subsequent spinoffs in Strange Love and Flavor of Love, which set a ratings record for the channel with its debut in August '06, and continues setting records as the highest rated show on the network.
I doubt I will ever do another one, though. What I'm gonna do is make this one a collector's item. My first and only solo album, ever.
