046 - I'm Flavor Flav and I'm NOT an Enemy of the Public Anymore!
From a young age, he was a musical prodigy. At the age of 5 he taught himself piano and 14 other instruments. He sang in the church choir like an angel, but burned down his house playing with lighters like a little devil. Raised in the mean streets of Long Island NY.
After graduating culinary school, while attending University, he pairs up with a graphic design student named Chuck and together they start a rap group called Public Enemy! At 1st, Rick Rubin, of Def Jam Records, didn’t understand the purpose of a hype man and almost singed Chuck to a solo deal, but you can’t deny a man wearing a wall clock around his neck!
After getting busted for scalping baseball tickets and serving his time, he moves back in to his mom’s house and gives rehab a try, for a little while at least. With the reality TV monster calling, he moves to California and switches his career to the small screen. Press Play-Record and get ready to save, its the Flawed Fable of Flavor Flav!
