If there’s one thing for certain about Flavor Flav, is that he knows how to get attention.
The Public Enemy hype man sang the U.S. National Anthem before Sunday night’s game between the host Milwaukee Bucks and the Atlanta Hawks, and, well, it certainly has people talking.
While many online were shocked that the 64-year-old rapper remembered all of the words, others were impressed at his ability to hit some of the high notes.
On the other side of the coin, his performance also was compared to Fergie’s infamous rendition during the NBA all-star game in 2018 – arguably one of the worst-ever versions of the song.
Flav isn’t letting any critics get to him, though.
He posted on social media that singing the Star-Spangled Banner had been something he always wanted to do and that he would never let public opinion stop him.
“The anthem was a long time bucket list item,,, that was fun!,” Flav wrote on social media. “I can’t live my life worried about what people might say about me. I won’t let that stop me from trying new things and doing things I wanna do. Some people might not like that. But a sure failure is if you stop trying.”
We don’t think the Bucks will ask Flav back to do it again, though – Milwaukee lost the game 127-110 to fall to 1-1 on the season.
