Flavor Flav, the iconic star tells all in his new book “Flavor Flav: The Icon The Memoir.” Flavor Flav will be signing copies of his book at the Las Vegas Hilton on Saturday, August 6.
Flavor Flav is now acknowledged as the greatest hype man ever – inventing the role as a member of the ground-breaking rap group Public Enemy. Known for his unique persona and flamboyant style, Flav has created slangs, sayings and styles that make him one of the most sampled voices in music, as well as one of the most well-known celebrities in America. His television series have shattered records for viewers of reality television, especially Flavor of Love, a spinoff of The Bachelor.
Flav signed with publishing mogul Farrah Gray to promote “Flavor Flav: The Icon The Memoir” that takes readers on a journey into the truth behind his larger-than-life image – revealing all and sparing no one. Flav exposes the tensions within Public Enemy, his bitterness over his treatment by Def Jam Records, his struggles with addiction and the many visits to both rehab and jail, before re-inventing himself in reality television as VH1’s most eligible – and most watched – bachelor.
Told with the gritty, compassionate and often hilarious style that has made him a legend, his memoir is a thrill ride from the heights of stardom to the depths of despair and back again. Fans get to share not only Flav’s unique perspective on music and reality TV, but will learn more about the man himself; an accomplished musician proficient in fifteen instruments, an experienced chef, an avid bowler, and a deeply spiritual human being.
“Flav is part of the Las Vegas Hilton family and we are pleased that he has chosen to have his book signing at our property,” said Ken Ciancimino, Executive Vice President of Administration.
Adorned with his signature clock, glasses, hats, and gold-rimmed teeth, Flavor Flav is one of the most recognized faces in America today. This media magnet attracts fans from around the world in every age group – from his older Public Enemy following in the late 80’s to early 90’s, to his millions of younger fans who know him from his appearances on The Surreal Life, Strange Love and Flavor of Love. In fact, the 2006 season two finale of Flavor of Love grossed 7.5 million viewers – the highest ever in the existence of the VH1 network!
The signing will take place in front of the Hilton Theater entrance on Saturday, August 6 from 7 p.m. – 8 p.m. Books will be available for signing for $24.99 (cash only).
