It was on this day in 1959 that William Jonathan Drayton Jr. Also known as Flavor Flavor, was born in Roosevelt Long Island, New York Though as a youth he showed musical promise with a variety of instruments, he'd emerged onto the world stage as a member of the groundbreaking political hip hop group Public Enemy. That's the power to fight the power. And like his name might suggest, Flavor Flavor was a colorful contrast to the militant persona of Public Enemy frontman Chuck D. Flavor was electric animated, high pitched and comical, along with his signature expressions and irreverent rhymes. Flavor flavors look also spoke with exclamation points. He wore baggy track suits and top hats and shades and opposed to the iconic Dukie gold rope chains worn by their contemporaries like Run DMC and Big Daddy Kane or the African medallions of de la soul flavor flavors. Neck was adorned with a large clock. Initially, the members of Public Enemy and Rick Rubin of their home label, Def Jam didn't exactly understand what Chuck D saw in flavor flavor. To them, Public Enemy was a serious group with a hard edged sound, but Chuck D knew that it would take both the brothers studying in the library and the brothers cracking jokes on the corner to really fight the power. And the rest, as they say, is history.
