About Flavor Flav
Rapper Flavor Flav has a current estimated net worth of $9 million. Flav participated in Public Enemy as second rapper or vocalist (vocals were mostly done by Chuck D), and as the band’s drummer. His stuttering vocal style has influenced rappers including Busta Rhymes and Ol’ Dirty Bastard. Providing a comic foil to the political message of Chuck D, some credit Flav with the development of the role of the rap sidekick. While in the group, Flav had numerous brushes with the law. During the time of the band’s success, Flav was also a heavy drug abuser, most notably crack, and had his license suspended at least 43 times, though he is proudly clean as of 2004.
Flav credits himself as having been the originator of the current platinum grill craze in hip-hop fashion. Though Flav himself has vehemently stated that he would never wear platinum teeth himself, his near-constant wearing of gold teeth has inspired other rappers to get gold or platinum teeth, he claims. Given that no noticeable celebrity wore gold-plated teeth prior to Public Enemy’s success, Flav’s comments are arguably accurate.
He often wears a clock around his neck, stating that observers will “know what time it is…”. These clocks became one of Flav’s trademarks, along with comic sunglasses. Flav is also known to wear flashy colors, such as hot pink, and a metal-horned helmet on his head, while Chuck D used to perform in dark colours, and the Security of the 1st World wear military uniform. Flav realizes that his style is bizarre, and he is proud of his own uniqueness.
