Pay up, Chuck!

Public Enemy co-founder Flavor Flav, the iconic hypeman who made the giant clock necklace his signature look, is suing his bandmate Chuck D as well as members of the group’s management and production. Flavor Flav, who’s real name is William J. Drayton, claims that it’s been years since he’s received his royalties. Flav also claims that he gave no consent to release Public Enemy’s newest album, Nothing is Quick in the Desert.

Royalties from one of the most influential hip hop groups of all time can’t be chump change, and it looks like Flav is gearing up for war to get what’s his.
