Earlier in the week news emerged that hip-hop superstars Public Enemy had sacked founding member Flavor Flav following a dispute over the group performing at a Bernie Sanders rally.

In response to the news, the band issued a statement clarifying the situation. In the statement, the hip-hop legends state: “Flavor Fav has been on suspension since 2016 when he went MIA from the Henry Belafonte benefit in Atlanta, Georgia.”

You can read the full statement here:

I have an unhealthy obsession with bad horror movies, the song Wanted Dead Or Alive and crap British game shows. I do this not because of the sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll lifestyle it affords me but more because it gives me an excuse to listen to bands that sound like hippos mating.
