Flavor Flav who is now sober, opened up about his former drug habit exposing how much he used to spend on drugs each day.
“I kind of maintained myself very well while I was on that shit. Not only that, but I kept it hidden. So, a lot of people didn’t really know. They were trying to figure it out. ‘Is he on something?’ Because I never actually let people know what I was doing,” Flav said on DJ Akademiks’ Off The Record podcast.
Flav says at one point, he was spending thousands of dollars a day.
He continued, “I started letting people know what I was doing when I was tired of being like that. There’s a point in time in life where you get tired of doing sh-t. Mainly, when it doesn’t get you no place. There was a time I was spending $2,400-$2,600 a day for six years straight. You do the math. That’s how much I spent on drugs. I ain’t gonna lie, I sold a lot. But I was my best customer. I had a lot. I had a lot of money at the time, too. I was doing wrong things with my money. So, I guess God wanted me to live. And he knows that I’m a mouth piece to the world. So, I felt like God helped me live through that, so, that way I can teach people about the mistake that I made. And hopefully, they won’t make them later on in life.”
