While discussing the rise of his career and memories of his times with Public Enemy, he shared that being addicted to drugs was the most difficult time of his life. He told Vlad that experimenting with drugs was “one of the worst mistakes that I could’ve really ever made with my life.”

”Let me tell you something, man. Drugs… them sh*ts is real easy to get on, and they’re hard as hell to get off. If I would’ve known that back in those days, then I don’t think I would’ve experimented with it. I got to the point, Vlad, where I was spending like $2,300 to $2,500 dollars per day on coke and crack. Per day. And I did that sh*t for six years straight. Do the math. That’s a lot of money, bro.”

He went to share how thankful he is that got past his drug addiction and that he is still here today:

“I thank God that I’m still living today and to be able to talk about it. ‘Cause, now I can teach about it,” he said. “I can teach about the mistakes that I made and hopefully people won’t make the same mistakes. I had a lot of people around me that was supposed to be my friends, but yet, when I would go to the bathroom or something, they would steal my sh*t and I would come back and my pile would be smaller. I thank God for those thieving-ass friends that I had because if it wasn’t for them stealing my sh*t, maybe those could have been the hits that took me out,” Hot New Hip-Hip quotes.

Flav also admitted that he was an addict for 18 years and “I’ve been clean off of coke and crack now for about a good eight-and-a-half years. I still got about ten to go before I can be back to where I was. So right now, to this day, yes, addiction can still set into me. So, that’s why I’m smart enough not to f*ck with that sh*t.”
