Scroll down to content

The single “911 Is a Joke” reached number one on the Hot Rap Singles.According to Flavor Flav, he was given the idea by Chuck D to write the song, “He gave me that as a project to do […] and I went and wrote the record. I went and got high and wrote the record. I went and got ripped, I went and got out of my mind, and I started speaking all kinds of crazy shit ‘cos usually back in the days when I used to smoke, it used to broaden my ideas and everything”. The humorous and satirical lyrics of the song were reflected in its music video, which featured a severely injured Flav being mistreated by a remiss, overdue ambulence staff.
