Taylor Swift could enter her ‘hype man’ era if her biggest fan has anything to do with it.
Flavor Flav, aka ‘King Swiftie’, has spent years gushing about the Love Story hitmaker and showing your infinite support attending their concerts and wearing their merch, and now you’re ready to collaborate.
The 64-year-old rapper and hype man, whose real name is William Jonathan Drayton Jr, said he would drop everything to work on a song with the Grammy winner.
‘Fuck yes! I’d be in the studio in a second,’ she told DailyMail.com exclusively. ‘I’d love to work with her. Any minute I’d put a track on her.’
Flavor Flav revealed to DailyMail.com that he is looking forward to collaborating with his idol Taylor Swift.
The rapper previously called Taylor one of the most influential artists who ever lived.
He continued: ‘If she called me at 3:30 in the morning, I would arrive at a quarter to four. It’s all love.’
Flav has slowly established himself as one of Taylor’s biggest fans, or ‘Swifties’, having expressed his admiration for her, even brandishing her friendship bracelets and merchandise at countless events.
Last month, he hailed her as one of the most “influential” artists of modern times.
Speaking to Billboard while wearing an Eras tour-inspired hoodie, he enthused, “She’s one of the most important and influential artists of our time.”
The New York native met Taylor for the first time at iHeartRadio Music last March, where he managed to take a selfie with the singer.
She then attended several shows on her Eras tour, starting with her concert in Detroit in early June, before singing at Los Angeles’ SoFi Stadium in August.
And unlike some fans, Flav was lucky enough to attend her Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour premiere in Los Angeles in October.
At the time, Flav revealed that he ran into Taylor’s father, Scott Swift, in the lobby of the AMC theater at The Grove, which was using all 14 screens to show his movie simultaneously.

The rapper and the hype man shook hands with Taylor’s father before exchanging friendship bracelets, with Scott giving him a colorful bracelet, while Flav exchanged a bolder all-black design that matched his outfit.
‘FLAVOR FLAV::: I made the friendship bracelets and exchanged them with #PapaSwift… now you can call him Flavor Flav!!!’ he joked in a social media caption. ‘Congratulations on changing the entertainment industry #TaylorSwift #tstheerastourfilm.’
During an interview with HOT 97’s Ebro in the Morning in January, he made his first statement that he is the one who has been considered the ‘King Swiftie.’
“Yes, I’m a Swiftie,” he said. ‘Not only that, but I now have a new name: “Swiftie King.”‘
The Harder Than You Think MC has even gone so far as to reveal that his favorite song is Bad Blood.
‘I mean, that’s [about] everyone’s relationships, or everyone’s families, or everyone’s friendships, it’s like, you know, “I used to be good friends, now you did something to me, now we have a grudge, look what you’ve done,” he explained. .
Flav shared that he had “always been a big fan of her music” following his initial meeting with singer-songwriter Shake It Off.
The legendary rapper She attended the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony in November, wearing a 1989-themed cardigan (Taylor’s version).
Flav dressed like a true fan when he attended Taylor’s concert in Detroit last summer.
He was also present at the premiere of Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour in Los Angeles in October.
Speaking to People at the event, Flav said “Every letter he spits relates to life.”
Most recently, Flav and Taylor ran into each other at the Grammys and even posed for some photos together.
‘The discussion [at the Grammys] “It was about congratulating her on all her success,” he told People.
And I’m a big fan of his, a big supporter of his. Having him acknowledge his “Swifties” fanbase gave me a name, “King Swiftie.”
‘I said, “Do you know they call me King Switfie?” She said, “I know!” Hey, when I heard her say that, it was huge for me.
