Flavor Flav's Clock Necklace

What's a time capsule without a time piece? Flavor Flav's signature ticking jewelry is iconic rap fashion. And despite Flav's reality-show present, don't forget about his past, as a member of Public Enemy, the perfect embodiment of rap's ability to speak the truth and put the powers that be on notice.
