Chuck D and Public Enemy performed at the Bernie Sanders rally in Los Angeles last weekend just hours after effectively firing Flavor Flav in the wake of the MC’s attorney sending the Sanders campaign a cease and desist letter for advertising the same rally allegedly using his likeness and trademark clock necklace.

Classics such as Fight The Power and Bring the Noise were aired by Chuck D after he’d earlier said Public Enemy ‘thank Flavor Flav for his years of service and wish him well’.

“From a legal standpoint, Chuck could perform as Public Enemy if he ever wanted to; he is the sole owner of the Public Enemy trademark,” his lawyer added. “He originally drew the logo himself in the mid-’80s, is also the creative visionary and the group’s primary songwriter, having written Flavor’s most memorable lines.”
