Flavor Flav Heading Back to High School in New Reality Series
Public Enemy hypeman turned reality star Flavor Flav is returning to the tube ... and school. Flav, who made a pop culture comeback with his successful VH1 reality series 'Flavor of Love,' is working on two new television shows, one that will take the rapper back to high school.
"I'm working on a reality show and a talk show, going back to high school," Flav revealed in an interview. " I got a talk show coming, ya'll ain't going to be mad at ya' boy."
Following the success of 'Flavor of Love,' the 50-year-old tested out his acting chops on the short-lived show 'Under One Roof.' Flav played an ex-convict who moved in with his law-abiding, straight-laced younger brother. The series was canceled after one season.
Born William Drayton Jr. the rapper gained popularity as a founding member of the political rap group Public Enemy. Flav became best known for wearing a large clock around his neck, which he still sports to this day. He also plays several instruments including the piano, guitar, bass, clarinet and drums. He dropped his first solo album in 2006.
