The Public Enemy Family is feuding and Flavor Flav wants his royalties. In other rap news, DMX is heading back to rehab…again. More inside…

“Nobody wins when the family feuds” – Jay Z

Flavor Flav is SUING Chuck D and Public Enemy for unpaid royalties. Yikes.

Flav claims he hasn’t seen a royalty check in YEARS despite having an agreement with Chuck D to split the profits “from their music, live concerts and merchandise,” according to TMZ.

The rap pioneer also claims he hasn’t been paid in full for the use of his voice and image on the new Public Enemy album, Nothing Is Quick in the Desert. He reportedly requested $75,000, but he only received $7,500.

The former reality star is also suing producer Gary G-Wiz. In the paperwork, he claims Gary inked a deal for Public Enemy action figures without his knowledge. Apparently, the toy company paid Gary, but Flav got nothing.

Flav wants his money. Pay the man!

In other rap news…

DMX was given the option of house arrest or rehab. He’s choosing rehab (again) and it’s probably a good thing.

Sources tell TMZ he’s getting treatment at a facility in New England for substance abuse. "House arrest wasn't working for me, so I made the decision to do something positive and better for myself,” X reportedly told the site. To keep his mind occupied, he’s working on new music. “My pen is still to the paper and I'm in Beast Mode,” he said.

X will no longer be on house arrest (ditching the ankle monitor) for tax evasion and he will get treatment at the facility. His manager Pat Gallo claims the “Party Up” rapper is already making “great process,” working with recovery coach Joseph Griffin.

Prayers up for X!
