Flavor Flav Pitches New Show at Iowa High School
CLINTON, Iowa (AP) — Now that he's opened his first chicken restaurant in Iowa, rapper Flavor Flav would like to earn his high school diploma there and record the effort for a new reality show.
Flav, whose real name is William Drayton Jr., grew up in Freeport, N.Y. He says he dropped out of school in 10th grade.
He opened the first Flav's Fried Chicken in Clinton last month.
It's his only connection to the Mississippi River town. But last week the 51-year-old pitched his idea for "Flavor Flav Goes Back to High School" to the local school superintendent and a school board member. He says he'll approach the full board in a couple of weeks.
Flav founded hip-hop group Public Enemy in the '80s and has since found new fame on reality shows.
