Flavor Flav

-- 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.

Are you allowed to store all of those fireworks in your garage? It looks like something the fire department would give you a citation for. If there was a fire in that garage, the whole block might blow up.


I don't think Flav has good business sense. First he let his fried chicken franchise go bust, now he accepted payment in explosives. I can't see this leading anywhere good.

Since TMZ doesn't seem to be able to stop advertising scams. I suggest that we all start posting our own ads, maybe that will get some response. Tmz is allowing them to advertise absolutely free! So, I will start placing my ads today! Can you believe it absolutely free nationwide advertising!! Got a pet project? Start posting!!
