Chuck D and Flavor Flav has reached their target of £51,000 to record a new album. Interestingly however, the money has not been fronted by a label or investor... but instead the fans.
Through website "sellaband", fans are asked to invest money in the band in exchange for copies of the album, exclusive merchandise, etc. Despite originally coming up against some controversy when launching the campaign, Chuck declared the whole thing a success.
