Las Vegas transplant Flavor Flav — Public Enemy’s colorful hype man and bona fide reality T.V. star — turned 59 on Friday (March 16). His P.E. brethren Chuck D turned to Twitter to wish him a happy birthday but not without giving him a lighthearted piece of advice.
“Happy Birthday StinkyFace old man @FlavorFlav lol,” Chuck wrote. “stay the fcuk out dem casinos. Luvout bro.”

In regard to the “dem casinos” portion of Chuck’s post, Flav was attacked by a fellow casino patron in January.
Chuck’s sentiment is particularly telling considering Flav filed a lawsuit against his longtime partner-in-rhyme last August, setting off a media firestorm.
In an exclusive interview with HipHopDX, the “Don’t Believe The Hype” mastermind explained in detail the reason for the lawsuit and pointed out it was Gary “G-Wiz” Rinaldo of The Bomb Squad that Flav was really after. But because Chuck’s name was attached to their joint company, BTNE, it appeared Flav was going after the P.E. frontman.
Judging by Chuck’s recent tweet, it’s water under the proverbial bridge.
