Flavor Flav's Chicken & Ribs

The man who has single-handedly kept the novelty clock and plastic Viking hat industries alive for years got served some harsh news last week. After a months-long battle with the landlords, the final Flavor Flav's Chicken & Ribs location in Sterling Heights, Michigan is bidding us adieu. The doors to Flav's MI restaurant were first padlocked back in June after he failed to cough up the $20,000 he owed the building's landlord. He got the eviction postponed when he handed over one month's rent ($3,500) but now that the U-Hauls have carted everything away, it seems we DO have to believe the hype, Professor Griff: this chicken joint is donezo. The closing marks Flavor Flav's third failed restaurant attempt since 2011. His inaugural eatery lasted only four months in Clinton, Iowa before lawsuits shut it down, while the sophomore effort in Vegas stood for just six months. Flavor Flav's Chicken & Ribs claims on Facebook that they're relocating yet again, but at this rate, you probably shouldn't hold your breath, boi.
