She on the cover of Melody Maker and she say it's my time like Flavor

Public Enemy - 911 Is A Joke
(From Fear Of A Black Planet album; 1990)

Is 2015 gonna be the year when Def Jam finally gives Flavor Flav the rights back to his shelved debut solo album? It's plausible that the record could be utterly F.U.B.A.R given that Flav was already spending hundreds of dollars a day on crack back then, so maybe Russell & Lyor were right to let it rot in the same Def Jam vault which contains the Flatlinerz sophomore album and Omillio Sparks' debut album.

However, it's also plausible that a 1991 Flava Flav record with production from The Bomb Squad and the Imperial Grand Ministers of Funk must surely contain at least one song that's as good as 911 Is A Joke or Cold Lampin' With Flavor or Can't Do Nuttin' For Ya Man or even I Don't Wanna Be Called Yo N*ga, so it couldn't possibly be any more of a disaster than Autobiography of Mistachuck was in 1996.

U.K blokes - remember when Mr Bongo stumped up for a couple of hundred copies of Chuck D's No 12" and then ended up being stuck with 90% of them after everybody heard how bad the song was? They were still tryna flog them off for 50p 5 years later in 2001. Fuck it, Van Damme 'em, Huw & Cam will blam blam 'em.

"Cold Lampin' With Flavor" is the best song on the 2nd P.E album which wasn't a single.

This CD has been sitting in a shop near me since it came out. I've never been brave enough to cop it

Maybe the song with Smooth B on there could an unheard masterpiece of party-rap?

(A very unlikely maybe.)
