Throwback: Flavor Flav-Unga Bunga Bunga

Flavor Flav’s “Unga Bunga Bunga” came from his 2006 self-titled solo album. The Public Enemy hype man had worked on his solo music for seven years releasing the first single, “Hot 1” in 1999. At the time of the album’s release Flavor Flav was popular because of the reality shows Strange Love and Flavor Of Love. The video for “Unga Bunga Bunga” showed Flavor Flav sharing his talents as a multi-instrumentalist because he plays the drums and bass guitar. His Public Enemy bandmate Chuck D appears in the video holding a copy of the album for the camera. The nonsensical chant later appeared in season two of the television show Breaking Bad where many people heard it for the first time. Flavor Flav’s 2006 solo project is his only one to date. Flavor Flav was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame with Public Enemy in 2013.
