Flava Flav Has a Dope New Gig

He's got everybody talking about the weather.

Published March 6, 2016

Celebrities having side hustles is nothing new, but we've never seen one quite like this. Rapper and reality TV star Flava Flav has a new gig to add to his diverse resume: meteorologist. Recently, Flav took to Salt Lake City’s Fox13 to show off his anchoring skills, and getting the weather report has never been so entertaining:

Flav brought his own flare to the job, saying, “Let me tell ya’ll something, the weather is going to be kind of good today.” He also thanked the station, and its viewers, saying, “I just want to say thank ya’ll for letting me be here, you know what I’m saying?”

Sadly, this isn’t going to become Flav’s consistent gig, but he did seem to be enjoying the guest appearance, hollering out his trademark, “Yeah boy!” before give viewers the forecast.

On the local news isn't the only place we've seen Flav's influence recently. His group Public Enemy taught us how to “Fight The Power,” and their most famous anti-establishment song, recently closed out the Oscars following the #OscarsSoWhite controversy. Revisit the classic work below:
