Flavor Flav, a founding member of iconic hip-hop group Public Enemy alongside Chuck D, has recently talked about Eminem with DJ Whoo Kid on Shade 45 radio.
“Eminem is my favorite rapper. Word up. And not only that, he still shouts Flavor Flav out in his records. Yeah boy! You know what? Check this out. I don’t care how they trying to color my man it don’t stop him from being number one. That’s all I got to say. And being number one don’t have no color. Word up man. Yeah, Eminem man! he’s the best rapper alive right now man! Can’t nobody beat him out. When you can’t be beat, that means you are the best.” said Flavor Flav.
Then he continued: “Let me tell you something. Back in the day, when Eminem, Snoop, Dre, they had this group together and this is when the first time Eminem seen me and when he seen me, he went ABSOLUTELY CRAZY. I didn’t know who he was at that time. I gave him mad love man. He went crazy over me and I gave mad love. Lets say like this, because a lot of those guys [Redman, LL Cool , Nas] are like mentors to Em. But then Em is like a mentor to them too. It’s all a mutual respect thing. That’s one thing I could say about Eminem. He has mad, mad respect from all of the legends in the rap game but he’s a legend himself. For real.”
Whoo Kid also promised the hip-hop icon to send Eminem’s recent merch as a gift: “Hook me up with a Detroit Lions and Mom’s Spaghetti sweater and I’ll be wearing that s–t through every airport in the world man.” Flavor Flav added. You can watch the entire thing below:
