Flavor Flav Spent $2,400 A Day On Drugs For Six Years Straight

Flavor Flav used to spend a whole lot of money on drugs.

Flavor Flav was the recent guest on DJ Akademiks’ ‘Off the Record’ podcast, where the rapper discussed the time when he struggled with addiction. During the conversation, the “Fight The Power” rapper revealed that he used to spend around $2,400 a day on drugs.

“I kind of maintained myself very well while I was on that sh*t. Not only that, but I kept it hidden,” Flavor Flav tells AK. “So, a lot of people didn’t really know. They were trying to figure it out. ‘Is he on something?’ Because I never actually let people know what I was doing.”

He continued, “I started letting people know what I was doing when I was tired of being like that. There’s a point in time in life where you get tired of doing sh*t. Mainly, when it doesn’t get you no place. There was a time I was spending $2,400-$2,600 a day for six years straight. You do the math. That’s how much I spent on drugs. I ain’t gonna lie, I sold a lot. But I was my best customer. I had a lot. I had a lot of money at the time, too. I was doing wrong things with my money.”

He added, “So, I guess God wanted me to live. And he knows that I’m a mouth piece to the world. So, I felt like God helped me live through that, so, that way I can teach people about the mistake that I made. And hopefully, they won’t make them later on in life.”
