State police say rapper and Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Flavor Flav was ticketed for speeding and driving without a license en route to his mother's funeral on Long Island.
The rapper, whose real name is William Drayton, was allegedly driving 79 mph in a 55 mph zone Thursday morning on the Meadowbrook Parkway.
Police say the Long Island native also had a small amount of marijuana, and had 16 suspensions on his license.
Police say he was released on an appearance ticket so he could attend his mother's funeral; Anna Drayton died Dec. 31.
He is due in court Jan. 28. The name of his attorney was not immediately available.
He was a member of Public Enemy, which was inducted into the hall of fame last year.
