When it comes to the chicken business, Flavor Flav is all about expansion. The clock-wearing, Public Enemy hype man is reportedly in talks to take his new business venture, Flavor Flav’s Fried Chicken, to Las Vegas.

During a trip to Sin City, Flav met with Riviera CEO Andy Choy and a host of other company executives to pitch the idea of bringing the chicken franchise to the famed casino. According TMZ, if the deal goes through, sources say that the restaurant will occupy a prime spot inside the casino’s hotel.

Since opening what may turn out to be his flagship location in January, Flav has run into some financial issues behind the chicken restaurant. As previously reported, employees claimed that payroll checks bounced, and that the company still owed back-pay to some employees.

Both Flav and owner Nick Cimino wrote off the claims as acts of disgruntled employees who were fired. “It’s not true information first of all and second of all maybe these are people that’s just jealous of me being here and probably want to see me out,” Flav told a local news outlet. “Yes, we do have money in our accounts.”

No word yet on when Flavor Flav’s newest chicken restaurant will open.
