-- It's a no go. Sources tell TMZ, cops just showed up to Flav's house and told him he'd be arrested if he set off a single firework. BUMMER. 

gray-bar-update
North Korea is so jealous right now ... just look at the MASSIVE stash of explosives Flavor Flav is planning to blow up today on his unsuspecting block in Vegas.

Flav tells TMZ, the arsenal is worth roughly $8,000, but he didn't have to pay a cent because he has a deal with the local firework company that supplied the mini-bombs. According to Flav, the company agreed to give him cash and a garage-full of fireworks in exchange for one commercial ... what a steal.

But Flav's not about to blast his neighborhood to kingdom come -- the rapper tells us, he learned his lesson from last year when he accidentally ignited a mega-explosion on his block ... and had some 'splainin' to do when the cops raced to the scene.

(FYI -- Flav got a stern talking to, but was never arrested or even cited last year).

But tonight, Flav insists he's going to be "responsible" with the fireworks ... and will try to make sure the show is a quick one, in an effort to not piss off his neighbors.

I bet that Flav paid 8 grand got no money and no commercial, he just wants people to think he is a big deal in a very small way.

Even where fireworks are legal, it's illegal to set them off within city limits, and you may not set them off at all if conditions are too dry. It has nothing to freedom. They're explosive, they're unpredictable (sometimes they shoot sideways instead of up), they start fires easily.

That garage looked like World War III. A job well done by the LVMPD.

He loves everyone and enjoys blowing up fireworks. Why not blast his chickens and see how much money & chicken lives he can waste? He obviously isn't spending time with his kids. We don't want daddy to send them up to the sky in little smithereens too.
