According to the rapper, the group has not paid him the full amount he is owed for having his voice and likeness on their latest album Nothing is Quick in the Desert, which was used without his consent. The 58-year-old also claims he hasn’t gotten any money from merchandizing royalties or performance fees either.
Chuck D has responded to the lawsuit, saying he’s open to hearing what Flav has to say. “Flav HAS HIS rights, but took a wrong road on this,” the rapper said. “People can lighten up on Flav,” he later tweeted, showing no ill will toward his band mate. “It’s his new mgt that vengefully felt that suing a 3rd party & connecting me was a good move for him #stupid.”
