Flavor Flav Reveals He Spent $2600 A Day On Drugs For 6 Years At Height Of His Addiction


Flavor Flav is opening up about his past drug addiction.

During a recent appearance on DJ Akademiks‘ ‘Off The Record’ podcast, Flavor Flav, who recently celebrated two years of sobriety in October, got candid about his history with drug addiction and how he kept his battle hidden over the years.

He explained,

“I maintained myself very well while I was on that s**t, you feel me? I kept it hidden. There was a time I was spending $2400-$2600 a day for six years, you do the math. And that was how much I spent on drugs. I sold a lot but I was my best customer, I had a lot of money but I was just doing the wrong things with my money.”

He added,

“Back in the days, when we used to make drug records, we used to talk about selling drugs. Talking about who can make the most money off drugs, who’s balling off selling drugs. It was a competition thing to all of the hustlers.”

While reflecting on his sobriety, the “Fight The Power” rapper said,

“God wanted me to live because he knew I was a mouthpiece for the world so I can teach people about the mistakes that I made.”

The rapper has had a troubled past with drug abuse.

According to reports, in 2015, Flavor Flav was charged with driving while under the influence of cocaine after being arrested on a Las Vegas highway. The hip-hop legend was also charged by Clark County prosecutors with speeding and having an open container of alcohol.

Thankfully, the New York rapper has been on a path of sober living. Back in October, Flavor Flav took to Instagram to celebrate two years of sobriety. In his Instagram post, he said,

“Today is October 19. And guess what: I am two years, no cigarettes. Two years, no alcohol. And you know what? I feel real good y’all, just to let you know. And I don’t care what nobody say, I look good y’all.”
