During a conversation with Steve-O, Flavor Flav confirms that he recently recorded vocals for Dr. Dre’s upcoming studio album.
One pattern has emerged, however. Dre appears to be connecting with several of his fellow OGs, playing them the project and allowing them to ramp up hype shortly thereafter. We’ve seen it with Grandmaster Flash. We’ve seen it with Diamond D and Xzibit. Now, Flavor Flav has confirmed his own involvement with the album, revealing that only has he heard it — but that he’s on it.

During a recent appearance on Steve-O’s Wild Ride! podcast, Flav opened up about his experience working with the Doc. “I was just at Dre’s house a week and a half ago,” explains Flav. “One of the best people in the world. I’m honored for him to have had me record something at his house for his upcoming album that’s getting ready to come out. That’s big to me. Flavor Flav on a Dr. Dre album, that’s big to me, bro.”
Of course, it goes without saying that nothing is final where Dre is concerned, and songs can be vaulted without explanation. Still, it’s exciting to hear Flav’s confirmation that the album is indeed “upcoming.” Though this is purely an assumption, it feels safe to suggest that Flav likely recorded a song’s intro or possibly even a skit; lest we forget the cinematic and morbid outro on “Loose Cannons.”
