Public Enemy’s Flavor Flav will soon make a leap into the world of food and liquor with two new business ventures. TheQuietus.com reports that Flavor Flav made an announcement about his upcoming ventures prior to a Public Enemy show earlier this week.
Among the two ventures is Le Flav Spirits, a liquor line that will consist of a number of flavored liquors including bubblegum and sweet tea vodka.
“Yo, check this out. I want you all to keep on the lookout – it should be on the shelves by January – I’m launching a thing called ‘Le Flav Spirits,’” Flavor Flav explained while at the pre-show event. “I’m comin’ out with a cherry vodka, a berry vodka, an olive vodka, a sweet tea vodka, a bubblegum vodka and grape vodka. Also, I’m comin’ out with ‘Le Flav Cognac’ and ‘Chateaux Le Flav’ which’ll be some bubbly. Champagne, that’s right folks – Poppin’n’drinkin!’”
Lastly, Flavor Flav hopes to compete with the Kernel himself by opening his own fried chicken franchise.
“I’m also launching FFC – ya’ll heard of KFC right? – well this is FFC, Flav’s Fried Chicken. The Colonel better watch his back, G! The Colonel might end up in my fryer,” said the rapper.
While Flavor Flav spoke on his upcoming business ventures Chuck D explained that the group will soon head to “the motherland” for a handful of shows and workshops.
