This is the self-titled debut solo album by hip-hop artist Flavor Flav. It is the only non-Public Enemy album made by him. The album was in production for at least seven years with the oldest track being "Hot 1", first released as a single in 1999. The only guest appearance is from Smooth B of Nice & Smooth. Ol' Dirty Bastard, The Beatnuts and Ce Ce Peniston had been slated to appear on the album, but did not make the cut.[citation needed] This album is sometimes mistakenly referred to as "Hollywood" due to the image of the sign on the front of the album but it is self-titled.

The songs "Flavor Man" and "Col-Leepin" later appeared on Public Enemy's 2007 album How You Sell Soul To A Soulless People Who Sold Their Soul?.
