For reasons both delightful and unexplained, Public Enemy are no strangers to Wisconsin. From playing Summerfest to playing family reunions in Wauwatosa, the seminal hip-hop group can’t seem to get enough of our fine Terrordome state. Now, one of PE’s most outlandish figures, Flavor Flav, is taking things up a notch: The influential hype man is set to appear at a Lake Geneva pizza joint for not one, not two, but three nights of meet-and-greets. It’s like the time 50 Cent dropped by an Oak Creek liquor store, except better.
Yes, on September 7, 8, and 9, from 5-9 p.m. daily, Flavor Flav—who is currently suing Public Enemy and frontman Chuck D for unpaid royalties—will be kicking it at Mama Cimino’s (131 N. Wells St., Lake Geneva, 262-348-9077). “No one cooks like Mama,” proclaims Mama Cimino’s website. The full lyrics to “Black Steel In The Hour Of Chaos,” meanwhile, are nowhere to be found.
Oh, the cover. Per a flyer, tickets at the door are a cool $100. No one said cold lampin’ with Flavor over a hot slice of ‘za would be cheap. [h/t Andrew Pappas]
