While many TV audiences know William Drayton, aka Flavor Flav, as a colorful (and sometimes polarizing) figure on his reality TV shows, the multi-talent came to prominence for many as a member of the rap group Public Enemy. Public Enemy’s messages of Black power and social consciousness run contrary to some of the images we’ve seen on the TV from Flav, but this conflict and many others are addressed in Flavor Flav’s new memoir, Flavor Flav: The Icon. After 25 years in show business Flav takes readers in vivid detail behind the scenes of his multifaceted career discussing everything from his abuse of drugs to his time in prison.
In part one of TheUrbandaily.com‘s interview with Flav we asked him what it must have felt like to record and perform an anti-drug song like “Night Of The Living Baseheads” when he was a user of the drug himself.
