Flavor Flav to Museum

Yeah, I Got the Time!

6/1/2011 4:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Flavor Flav is known for rap music, fried chicken, and big giant clocks -- and TMZ has learned one of those things is getting Flav immortalized in an actual museum!

Reps for Flav tell us the rap pioneer turned chicken king got a call from the Grammy Museum in LA -- asking him to donate one of his famous over-sized timepieces for display.

We're told Flav was thrilled to grant the request ... saying he was happy that  "generations unborn will be able to see this [clock]."

Reps for the museum tell us they're still deciding where to permanently display the clock -- which they want to boost the museum's hip-hop cred.

As for Flav ... dude has more than 100 neck-clocks ... he can spare the time.

People love to mock him, but the fact remains that he is a rap legend and part of maybe the most respected rap group in the history of the genre. Congrats to Flav.

Hope he donates an iconic clock like one from the "Fight The Power" video, and not one he wore on Flavor of Love or something.

What an insult to the music industry that they would even acknowledge this clown, let alone ask for one of his ridiculous clocks.

Those big ass clocks he wears around his neck are the f-ing stupidest things I've ever seen a man wear. He looks like a jack-ass.

Phew, ok the Grammy Museum makes sense. I was slightly concerned that the Smithsonian museums had run out of historical items to preserve.
