Flavor Flav Owes More Than $180,000 in Taxes


Vibe / November 13, 2009

Rappers having problems with the IRS seem to be a common theme as of late. Earlier this year, the Wu-Tang Clan’s Method Man was feeling the pressure from Uncle Sam, then MC Hammer, Nas, and most recently DMX.

Now, Flavor Flav is the latest to fall behind on his taxes.

According to The Detroit News, the 50-year-old founding member of Public Enemy is delinquent on his taxes, owing $183,000, states public records.

A lien was filed against Flav back in December by the State of California.

The rapper has yet to comment on the situation.
