Public Enemy announced they are permanently “moving forward” without Flavor Flav firing one of hip-hop’s most memorable hypemen after more than 35 years. The abrupt dismissal comes just two days after the rapper sent a ceased and desist letter over Chuck D’s concert at the campaign’s Los Angeles rally Sunday. Flav didn’t want to endorse Bernie Sanders.
