Y’all Got FOOLED! Chuck D Reveals Public Enemy Flavor Flav Breakup STAGED!
Check this out, so y’all remember a couple weeks back Public Enemy made headlines for less than favorable news that the group had split with Flavor Flav. Well, guess what, it was ALL FAKE NEWS. Read on since Chuck D reveals that Flavor Flav breakup was staged…
CelebNMusic247.com reports that the iconic rap group was reportedly at odds over a performance that was to be held at a Bernie Sanders rally.
After it was announced that Public Enemy would be taking to the stage, Flavor Flav came forward to denounce the show. A war of words between members Chuck D and Flav ensued. Shortly after the disagreement, news broke that Flav was no longer in the group.
Fans of PE were devastated that the longtime friends and collaborators would just call it quits like that. They were in disbelieve.
Now, that the dust has settled, Chuck D told People’s Party with Talib Kweli that it was all staged to prove a point.
Chuck D said:
The murder of Pop Smoke, man, to see that, it was like the flashback to Nipsey Hussle last year. It got to be like, do rappers need to be killed to get noticed in hip hop? And this whole thing of bad news is the news and making people like—my daughter Dominique, who runs my company, she’s often like, ‘Dad, that’s not a good look.’ And I’m like when the f*ck does the good look get acknowledged because the bad look got an elevator and a rocket to it.
Why they made up the whole story:
D went on to say that Flavor Flav has been taking a few hits in the media lately and his “stock was low,” so they concocted a story line that would grab the attention of the masses.
Chuck went on to jokingly say:
Flav doesn’t know the difference between Bernie Sanders, Barry Sanders, or Colonel Sanders. He don’t give a f*ck. I’m not saying it’s a hoax. I’m saying the original intention was to get your attention and not play attention, get you to pay attention.
Flav can’t be fired, anyway, because Chuck says “he’s a partner.”
Don’t forget, the Public Enemy hype man said it had nothing to do with Sanders all along!
