Public Enemy’s Flavor Flav has step out from reality shows and ventured into the restaurant business. And Rightfully so, Flav, whose real name is William Jonathan Drayton, is the son of a restaurateur and attended culinary school in the 1970s before gaining fame as a member of the rap group Public Enemy in the ’80s. He now lives in the Las Vegas Valley.
On Thursday, Flav opened his latest soul food take-out spot. “Flavor Flav House of Chicken”, at 3333 S. Maryland Parkway, offers such menu items as fried chicken, fried shrimp and red velvet waffles. Chicken dinners are $6 to $10, and an eight-piece box of fried chicken is priced at $12.99. About 100 people attended a grand opening ceremony.
