Flavor Flav Honors Legendary Female Emcees

The 2024 iHeartRadio Music Awards took place on Monday, April 1 in Los Angeles at the Dolby Theatre. Many celebrities came through but a t-shirt worn by Public Enemy’s Flavor Flav caught the attention of people on the yellow carpet as it sent a message to female artists.

According to iHeart.com, William Jonathan Drayton Jr., better known to the world as Flavor Flav had on his classic timepiece around his neck, a pink diamond clock pendant, along with an iced-out Strong Arm chain from hip-hop recording artist, Flo Rida. Yet, it’s the T-shirt he had on under his jacket that garnered attention.

The black t-shirt featured some names of some legendary female emcees who have set the tone and paved the way for artists today like Doja Cat, Latto, Nikki Minaj, Cardi B, and many others. The women listed are TLC, Yo-Yo, Da Brat, MC Lyte, Lauryn Hill, Salt-N-Pepa, Missy Elliott, Queen Latifah and Roxanne Shanté.

“We gotta respect all our queens in Hip-Hop,” Flav said.

One of Flav’s reality TV shows, Flavor of Love, may be making a comeback according to Deadline. The media outlet reported that there may be a reimagining of the VH1 show that aired for three seasons from 2006- 2008. Julie Pizzi, who is the President of 51 Minds Entertainment and Bunim/Murray Productions, stated that they are about to reboot this Flav-led dating show.

“We’re in the process of working with Flavor Flav to reimagine what Flavor of Love can feel like in this in this decade, which is very different. The project is really fun, a comedy in the dating space,” she said. Although the show focused and starred the “911 Is A Joke” rapper, it will not be about him this time around but he will be involved in part of the process.

You can catch the iHeartRadio Music Awards on the streaming platform, Hulu.
