Sporting a Milwaukee Bucks jersey and his signature neck clocks, Flavor Flav gave his best jazzy rendition of “The Star Spangled Banner” at the Milwaukee Bucks’ home opener against the Atlanta Hawks on Oct. 29.

The clock-wearing personality took to X, the site formerly known as Twitter, to give his thoughts on his performance, admitting that doing so marked off an item on his bucket list.
The anthem was a long time bucket list item,,, that was fun!
I can’t live my life worried about what people might say about me. I won’t let that stop me from trying new things and doing things I wanna do. Some people might not like that. But a sure failure is if you stop trying.
Flav did get some feedback from X users on his unexpected performance. Some gave him credit for his efforts. Others, not so much.
