‚ÄúY‚Äôall seen my partner Flavor Flav on TV . . . This is the same Flavor Flav. He ain‚Äôt never changed. People are surprised he‚Äôs not a black revolutionary: He wears a clock, and he‚Äôs 48. I‚Äôm not amazed at Flavor; I‚Äôm amazed at America.‚Äù – Chuck D. (via a recent interview in Akron, OH)
Get up get, get get down, Flavor Flav is soon to be a joke in Tinseltown. The be-clocked star of VH1's Flavor of Love and sometime Public Enemy hype man will be the guest of honor at Comedy Central's first carbon neutral event (because when you think of deforestation and emission trading schemes, it's Flavor Flav). Will Chuck D. treat his band-mate like Coltrane, insane?
By the way, if you think my Public Enemy references are dated, please check out the official press release. 'Nuff said.
The Comedy Central Roast of Flavor Flav debuts on Sunday, August 12 at 10p/9c.
