Chuck D & Flavor Flav Are Feuding Again!
Public Enemy is once again Frienemies since hip hop veterans Chuck D & Flavor Flav are beefing over a reunion tour.
CelebnMusic247.com reports Flava Flav claims that Chuck is the “hold up,” but Chuck clapped back with a statement about Flav suing him.
Let’s catch you up, shall we? If you recall, back in 2017 it was revealed that Flavor Flav slapped Chuck D and Public Enemy‘s business management firm with a lawsuit, among others, over profits he alleges he is owed.
Well, it seems Chuck D has NOT forgotten any of it ad the animosity has been brewing between longtime friends and collaborators Chuck D and Flavor Flav since.
Chuck tried to cover it all up saying that the Public Enemy breakup was all a hoax, and it appears the group is still together, but on a hiatus, since Chuck and Flav haven’t squashed their beef.
It seems that is not the case the Hip Hop icons are seriously at odds, and recently, TMZ caught up with Flav to chat about what’s next for him and Chuck.
Flav told the site:
There’s some things that Chuck D has to work out with me and once he comes to the table and sign this partnership agreement, then we can work. If he doesn’t sign this partnership agreement, we not working… That’s my boy and that’s my family member, but business-wise, we’re not seeing eye-to-eye.
Flavor, William Jonathan Drayton Jr., then said that he wasn’t at fault for “the hold up of this Public Enemy project.”
Stereogum reported that Chuck D responded to Flav’s remarks via a statement issued by his publicist.
Come on y’all. This is tired and stupid. Flav and I communicate on our own, so I normally don’t address these things in public, but I’m tired of the circus of airing news that ain’t news and am going to keep it factual here. Flav sues the folks he works with, so in 2017 he decided it was my turn. He lost when the judge dismissed the suit with prejudice in 2020, which means it’s permanent. Over. He can’t file again. He lost. Even after all of this, even after all the years of Flav giving the situation minimum while always asking for the maximum, I still work with him. But it’s time to change. Everybody in the situation can’t be burdened with picking up his slack. The keyword in ‘Brothers Gonna Work It Out’ is the word ‘work.’ We’re always gonna be brothers regardless, but Flav’s gotta do the work and there ain’t no getting down without the work. Simple as that.
Let’s also not forget that Chuck D said some pretty messed up things about Flav. Remember Chuck said, Flavor Flav would rather “Dance For His Money” after Bernie Sanders debacle. It was Harsh but to be honest factual.
Hopefully, Flav and Chuck can squash this and get back on track with PE.
