Flavor Flav has spoken in the past about his drug addiction and in a new interview admitted to spending $2,400 a day on the stuff for six years straight.
The Public Enemy member talked about it with DJ Akademiks and also said that he masked his addiction for a while.
“I kind of maintained myself very well while I was on that sh*t. Not only that, but I kept it hidden,” said Flav. “So, a lot of people didn’t really know. They were trying to figure it out. ‘Is he on something?’ Because I never actually let people know what I was doing.”
“I started letting people know what I was doing when I was tired of being like that,” he added. “There’s a point in time in life where you get tired of doing sh*t. Mainly, when it doesn’t get you no place. There was a time I was spending $2,400-$2,600 a day for six years straight. You do the math. That’s how much I spent on drugs. I ain’t gonna lie, I sold a lot. But I was my best customer. I had a lot. I had a lot of money at the time, too. I was doing wrong things with my money.”
