Flavor Flav responds to Chuck D disguising a hoax as a “wake-up call.”
As some may be aware by now, on April’s Fools Day (April 1), Chuck D decided to do some major back paddling. Last month in March, Chuck put out an announcement claiming the group parted ways with their hype-man, Flavor Flav. The news went viral fast and even brought out statements from both Chuck D and Flav’s reps.
Now we know it was all a lie!
In a official statement, (April 1st, 2020), Chuck D said that Orson Welles’ 1938 radio broadcast, “War of the Worlds” was behind it all. He explains saying the decision was meant to serve as “a wake-up call” and that he was over hip-hop only making the news for the bad moments and never for the positive achievements. As for Welles’ radio program being the culprit, Chuck D says it simply to show how people follow each another without much thought.
“Out of this storm came a plan between Flav and me to remind people that what’s important should have as much, if not more, value than just what’s popular. Thus came the HOAX, our ‘War Of The Worlds.’ Believe half of what you hear and NONE of what you see.”
Was this a positive achievement tho?!
Well Flav doesn’t seem to think so and had this to say…..
