Flavor Flav Says He's Not Part of Public Enemy's April Fool's Joke
"I am not a part of your hoax Chuck D"
After Chuck D issued a statement saying the whole dismal of Flavor Flav in March was part of the release strategy for Loud Is Enough — the newly released album by Public Enemy side-project Enemy Radio that also features Flavor Flav on a track — Flav took to Twitter this afternoon to add a seriously confusing layer to all this.
"I am not a part of your hoax [email protected],,,there are more serious things in the world right now than April Fool's jokes and dropping records,,,the world needs better than this,,,you say we are leaders so act like one,,,donate to those in need," Flavor Flav tweeted.
He then linked to the MusiCares COVID-19 Relief Fund.

In Public Enemy's press release, they said it was all inspired by the Orson Welles classic War of the Worlds, and the all-caps "HOAX" was a way to "illustrate how the media disproportionately covers bad news over good news when it comes to hip-hop."
But really, we are just as confused as you are at this point about this whole thing, and we're not sure if we're feeding into it all by reporting this.
We do, however, agree with Flavor Flav that there are much more important things we should all be worrying about right now than his status in Public Enemy and some elaborate month-long "HOAX," which by the way is in no way funny.
At this point, Chuck D has yet to respond, but do you even care?
