EXCLUSIVE: Chuck D And Flavor Flav Are Back Together In Public Enemy After A "Great Hoax"

Chuck D reveals in exclusive new interview that their "break-up" was really a social experiment about the media.

(AllHipHop News) That was fast. Chuck D has revealed that he and Flavor Flav are back together in the politically-charged rap collective Public Enemy,

Not only are they back, but the leader of the group also says the whole ordeal never was. 

In the latter part of April, Chuck D, under the name Public Enemy Radio, signed on to perform at a Bernie Sanders rally in Los Angeles. His longtime partner-in-rhyme Flavor Flav disagreed with the manuver and sent a cease-and-desist letter to the Sanders camp, claiming foul on the use of the Public Enemy name. On March 1, Chuck D tweeted that Flavor Flav was no longer in the group, causing a maelstrom of confusion, online chatter and debate among fans of the group.

The good news: they were trying to make a big point, Chuck D has exclusively revealed to Tim Einekel, a podcaster that runs "The Library With Tim Einekel." The interview runs well over an hour with Chuck D talking about a myriad of topics.

"It was the 'hoax that ain't no joke.' Yeah, it was intentional. It was intentional to drag out people like 'Here it is and here you are,'" he told Einekel. "People didn't hear a word I said up on that [Bernie Sanders rally] platform. Everybody talks about the blogs they're on or the TV interview. I used the 'blog' of a dude running for the president of the United States to be able to say what I had to say. And they didn't hear a word I had to say. So Enemy Radio is that political component that speaks to that."
