"Hey Hey Hey Hey. Yo like this and like that. Like this, like this and like that and this? Yeah."
—Flava Flav

Flava Flav is a featured fighter in Def Jam series and is a playable character in Def Jam Fight For NY and Def Jam Fight for NY: The Takeover.


When Public Enemy released It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back in 1988, it was as if the album had landed from another planet. Nothing sounded like it at the time. It Takes a Nation came frontloaded with sirens, squeals, and squawks that augmented the chaotic, collaged backing tracks over which P.E. front man Chuck D laid his rhymes. Now on his own, Flava Flav is easily recognized with the gold teeth, jumbo sunglasses, and always having a clock dangling from his neck. His lead vocals on hits like "911 Is a Joke" are now classic.

Def Jam Fight For NY

Now get ready to face this artist and his clock in Def Jam Fight For NY. Flava Flav is one of D-Mob's old-school threats that you bump into in the Terrordome, in Soundview. Hero will fight against him in the second half of the storyline.

Def Jam Fight For NY: The Takeover

If fighting for the Staten island Crew, Flava Flav will show jealously over the attention the protagonist is receiving from the ladies and challenges him to a fight at the barge.

  • His intro taunt is a clear reference to Dr. Dre's hit single "Nuthin' but a 'G' Thang" from The Chronic.
  • In early promotions of Def Jam Fight for NY suggests that Flava Flav will be in Crow's Crew. However in the actual game and the opening intro, Flavor Flav is in D-Mob's Crew. This could mean that Flava Flav was switched over to D-Mob's side during development.
  • Before making his way in Def Jam Fight For NY, Public Enemy's "Fight The Power" was featured in Def Jam Vendetta.
