Posted 1 hour, 37 minutes ago by Corinne Heller
Flavor Flav, a rapper and star of the dating reality series "Flavor of Love," is set to open a fried chicken eatery in Clinton, Iowa on Monday.
The 51-year-old, whose real name is William Drayton Jr., hopes to open hundreds of fried chicken joints called Flav's Fried Chicken, or FFC, that could compete with KFC. Flavor Flav graduated from cooking school in 1978 and worked as a head cook in several restaurants.
"You're going to find me in here working," Flavor Flav told the Clinton Herald newspaper. "You're going to be catching me seasoning my chicken, flouring my chicken, frying up my chicken, and not only that, but serving my chicken to my people. The taste will blow up your taste buds. You'll have fireworks in there."
Flavor Flav, who is known for sporting a clock around his neck and who has been the subject of a Comedy Central Roast, has also been keeping busy with his autobiography, "Flavor Flav: The Icon." The book is set for release in the late spring.
