Flavor Flav -- Closing In on Vegas Chicken Deal

4/13/2011 6:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

First Iowa, then THE WORLD -- TMZ has learned, Flavor Flav is taking his chicken franchise to the Riviera Casino in Las Vegas ... and he even met with the casino CEO to help his dream take wing.

Flav took the Riviera boardroom by STORM Monday during a meeting with casino bigwigs -- including CEO Andy Choy -- and sources close to the deal tell TMZ, Operation Fried Chicken is basically a go in Sin City ... pending some last minute number crunching and contract kinks.

It'd be a huge move up from his first location in rural Iowa -- according to sources, Flav's Fried Chicken would occupy some PRIME real estate inside the hotel ... once the deal goes through.

What a surreal life.

ROTFLMAO...there is NO prime real estate inside the Riviera! Every single square inch of it is DumpCity.

This seems like an odd move since he keeps bouncing paychecks at his Iowa location...

He's being sued in Iowa for stiffing his employees. Paychecks bouncing all over the place. No bank in town will take their checks anymore. How can he have money to open in VEGAS when he can't pay his employees in Iowa?
