There are two things in this world Flavor Flav can’t ever seem to get enough of: unprotected sex and fried chicken.
Hip hop’s own version of Mr. Hanky put Minny Jackson to shame on Thursday (March 15) as he showed off his “less platter” technique at the Las Vegas grand opening of Flavor Flav House of Flavor.
Sidenote: The famous hypeman’s chicken shack business partner is entrepreneur Farrah Gray, who made his first million by the time he was 14.
For the first time in decades, the white substance on his knuckles wasn’t crack residue or ash — it was flour.
Flav, 52, tells Bloomberg Businessweek that he hopes one day to give fast food giants like Kentucky Fried Chicken a run for their money.
“My FFC is going to be a chain. That’s going to be a franchise. House of Flavor is just one restaurant. I’m trying to do as good as the next big chain of chicken restaurants, like KFC or Popeye’s,” Flav said.
“Not outdo them, but I want to have a long-lasting business so if anything happens to me, my family could be secure.”
And what makes his fried chicken so finger lickin’ good?
“I have my own seasonings that I season my own chicken with. I’ll tell you one of my secrets, OK? If you ever pay attention to KFC, or Popeye’s, or Church’s, you’ll find out that their secret is in the breading. My secret is: I season my meat first and then roll it through regular flour, [letting] the seasonings from the meat season the breading. That way, when you bite into my chicken, you get that double whammy.”
Now, a YouTube selection plucked from the C+D vault in honor of this prestigious occasion.
