Unfortunately we don’t have any details at this time, except that she died on December 31, New Year’s Eve.
“On behalf of Full Force, we would like to send prayers of condolences to our good friend William Drayton aka Flavor Flav & his family on the passing of his beloved mother Anna who passed on New Year’s Eve.
“She was a wonderful & sweet person who is now up in heaven wearing Gods wings. A few weeks ago we were in the studio working on something special with Flav. He is a great guy & great son.
God stay with u boyyyeeee, we love you!”
Here’s Flavor Flav’s official announcement of his mother’s passing via Twitter:
According to The BoomBox, in an interview with People.com, Flavor Flav credited his mother for getting him into the music business.
“One thing she always say was do your do’s,” he recalled. “When you go out, you know your do’s and you know your don’ts. So do your do’s and leave the don’ts alone and you will be alright.”
