Flavor Flav opens restaurant – a fried chicken joint

January 26th, 2011 by Staff

CLINTON, Iowa — Rapper and reality TV star Flavor Flav is bringing the flavour of chicken to Iowa.

Flav’s Fried Chicken opens Monday in Clinton, Iowa. Flav has been there preparing for the launch and told the Clinton Herald he’ll visit often for promotions and even work the fryer.

Flav says it’s the first in a chain that stemmed from the 99 cent wings he served at Mama Cimino in Las Vegas. His business partner is the brother of that restaurant’s owner.

Flavour Flav, whose real name William Drayton Jr., founded hip-hop group Public Enemy in the ’80s. He found fame anew in 2004 on the third season of VH1′s “The Surreal Life.” He also starred in the network’s “Flavor of Love.”

He has a culinary degree and restaurant experience.
