'Cleveland is getting a good rap': Flavor Flav spotted on West 6th Street during NBA All-Star weekend

Flavor Flav was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a member of Public Enemy in 2013.

CLEVELAND — It has been a celebrity-filled weekend in Cleveland as various stars have descended upon the city to experience the 2022 NBA All-Star Game.

Flavor Flav is one of those stars – and we just so happened to get a few minutes to chat with the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer early Sunday morning on West 6th Street.

"The energy is great. You know what I’m saying? I’m loving it right now. Everybody is amped, excited for the game," Flavor Flav said about being in Cleveland.

He added that every place gets a good and bad rap sometimes -- but said that Cleveland is definitely winning with the All-Star celebration.

“Right now, Cleveland is getting a good rap. Not a bad rap," he said. "It’s where the All-Star Game is baby. Come on now, that’s a good rap!”

He wasn't too fond of the bitterly cold temperatures, though.

“Honestly, I felt real good tonight coming to the All-Star celebration -- but boy is it cold like crazy out here," he said. "I’m from the west coast, you know what I’m saying. It’s cold right now.”
