Chuck D Says Flav ‘Took the Wrong Road’ with PE Lawsuit, Claims they Will Perform Together Again

On Wednesday, news broke that Flavor Flav has filed a lawsuit against co-founding Public Enemy member Chuck D, along with other members from Public Enemy, over alleged unpaid royalties.

Chuck D took to Twitter on Thursday (Aug. 31) to address the issue, lamenting the “drama” and blaming Flavor Flav’s new management for the lawsuit.

“People can lighten up on Flav. It’s his new mgt that vengefully felt that suing a 3rd party & connecting me was a good move for him #stupid,” Chuck wrote.

He added, “Flav will be OK. TMZ Drama is beneath me considering our age. It’s low entertainment but I definitely like to find those 50 songs — referencing the fact that their contributions might be equal, despite what Flav outlined in the suit.”

In the lawsuit filed by Flav, he claims that he is owed unpaid royalties and the use of his likeness on Public Enemy’s July album, “Nothing is Quick Like the Desert.” It alleges that the group’s management and related companies “have for years attempted to minimize Flav’s role in the Public Enemy business.”

It is unclear how much Flav is requesting in the suit, but it is said to be determined during the trial. Check out Chuck D tweets below.
