Here's Why Flavor Flav Is More Than Public Enemy's Hype Man

Posted by

Anaheim, CA – Flavor Flav was recently attacked at a Las Vegas casino and taken to the hospital with minor injuries. But it looks like the Public Enemy luminary has already bounced back. While attending the 2018 NAMM Show at the Anaheim Convention Center on Friday (January 26), he showcased his piano-playing prowess.

The Flavor Of Love phenom shared a video of the moment to his Instagram account with a caption that read, “Thanks for capturing this and sending it to me,, Fun day at #NAMM just messing around on the keys.”

Many may not realize Flav is a gifted multi-instrumentalist. In fact, he plays over a dozen different instruments — from bass and piano to drums. In an interview with HipHopDX, he opened up about sometimes feeling misread.

“I really feel people underestimate me,” Flav told DX. “You know the only thing that keeps me overestimated is me keeping myself out there in front of people’s eyes and showing them that, ‘Yes, this is who I am and this is what I really do, and this is what I can do.’ I’m the best at it. And ain’t nobody in this business better at it than I.”

Over the years, Flav has routinely jumped around from instrument to instrument during Public Enemy live shows. Although P.E. is currently on a break while mastermind Chuck D tours with Prophet of Rage, it likely won’t be long before Flav is back out there.

Until then, watch the clip above.
