Before Flavor Flav achieved infamy on reality television, he was already a superstar as the hype man for Public Enemy. The group performed at Bumbershoot ‘04 as a part of Hip-Hop 101 with Nas, Massive Monkeys, and Byrdie. 2004 was a big year for the group - that April, Public Enemy was ranked #44 on Rolling Stone's “100 Greatest Artists of All Time.”
