CLINTON, IOWA (AP) - Now he’s opened his first chicken restaurant in Iowa, rapper Flavor Flav would like to earn his high school diploma in the state and record his efforts for a new reality TV show.

Flav, whose real name is William Drayton Jr., grew up in Freeport, N.Y. He says he dropped out of school in 10th grade.

He opened Flav’s Fried Chicken in Clinton, Iowa last month _ his only connection to the Mississippi River town.

Last week the 51-year-old pitched his idea for “Flavor Flav Goes Back to High School” to the local school superintendent and a school board member. He says he’ll approach the full board in a couple of weeks.

Flav was in ‘80s hip-hop group Public Enemy and has since found new fame on reality shows.
