Flav is fighting the power! Rapper Flavor Flav is suing Public Enemy front man Chuck D and other members of the group’s production and management team.
Billboard reports that the former Flavor of Love star alleges that despite his iconic role in Public Enemy, the group’s management have attempted to “minimize his role” in business matters while “continuing to rely upon [Flav’s] fame and persona to market the brand.”
The pint-sized hype man also claims he hasn’t received any royalty statements despite contributing to Public Enemey’s catalogue of hits. Flav also alleges that his likeness was used to promote the most recent Public Enemy album Nothing Is Quick in the Desert without his consent. He claims that he had not creative input on the new album and had never signed off on any of the final records that use his vocals.
We hope Flav can work it all out!
