Flavor Flav net worth: Flavor Flav is an American rapper and reality TV star who has a net worth of $3 million. Flavor Flav was born William Drayton Jr and grew up in Freeport, Long Island New York. Despite a troubled youth, young Flavor Flav managed to master many instruments and develop his musical skills. Flavor Flav met Carlton Ridenhour at university, and after a college radio show project, the two began rapping together under their now well-known stage names, Flavor Flav and Chuck D. Together they created the beginning sounds of what would soon became the hip hop group Public Enemy. Signing with Def Jam Records in 1986, Public Enemy would go on to be one of the most prolific rap groups in music history. Public Enemy garnered critical acclaim with their debut album, Yo! Bum Rush the Show and has subsequently released an additional nine albums, three of which have consecutively gone platinum (It Takes a Nation of Millions to hold us Back, Fear of Black Planet, and Apocalypse 91…The Enemy Strikes Black). Public Enemy songs can also be heard on the soundtracks for the film He Got Game and the video game Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. In 2004, Flav appeared on the third season of VH1 reality show The Surreal Life where he began a relationship with actress Brigitte Neilsen and went on to star in their own spin-off show, Strange Love. When the relationship failed, Flav was given his own reality series Flavor of Love, which lasted three seasons with top ratings and spawned three direct spin-off shows.
