Public Enemy Parts Ways With Flavor Flav

Chuck D broke the news recently.

Coming on the scene in the ‘80s, Public Enemy has played a molding role in hip-hop’s ongoing evolution. Armed with an effervescence and an assertive disposition, the formerly five-member crew has birthed such classics as “Fight The Power” and “Harder Than You Think.” However, the group recently announced that their future endeavors won’t include foundational member, Flavor Flav.

Public Enemy frontman, Chuck D, sent HipHopDX a statement recently that read, “Public Enemy and Public Enemy Radio will be moving forward without Flavor Flav … We thank him for his years of service and wish him well.”

The tension between the group and Flavor Flav had been mounting for some time, resulting in Chuck recently saying that Flavor would have one year to “get his act together.” Apparently, that grace period expired, and Flavor Fav will no longer be a Public Enemy member.

Public Enemy also announced that their next album, Loud Is Not Enough, will be dropping some time next month.
