Flavor Flav has sued his Public Enemy cohort Chuck D and various business associates of the seminal hip hop group over allegedly unpaid monies. Though Chuck D says he still expects to be performing with his hype man at upcoming shows.

According to TMZ, Flav’s lawsuit claims he is owed money relating to his cut of recording, publishing, live and merch income generated by Public Enemy. Among the disputed cash is a fee Flav reckons he is due from recent album ‘Nothing Is Quick In The Desert’ and money relating to a deal that resulted in Public Enemy action figures being sold.

Responding to the litigation, Chuck D told TMZ: “Flav has his rights, but took a wrong road on this”. Insisting his bandmate was mainly annoyed with a third party merchandiser and changes in the way the music business operates, D reckoned “we will be [together] on a future stage”, adding that Flav “will again be embarrassed admitting on stage about the way it spun out – it’s always this way with him”.

Stressing that he was up for sitting down and going through the various issues at some point, D concluded by saying that he nevertheless hoped that Flav “will be woke in rehearsal studio and paying attention to the work we and all the members do worldwide”.
