The Public Enemy rapper was decked out in a Swift-themed cardigan and matching clock necklace
The Public Enemy founding member, 64, combined two of his biggest interests at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn on Friday evening, wearing a timepiece around his neck while also repping one of his favorite singer-songwriters.
The Hall of Famer himself stepped out in a light blue clock necklace and a matching cardigan from Swift's website. As he wore the 1989 (Taylor's Version) garment, Flav even handed out Swift-themed guitar picks to reporters at the event, and opened up about his admiration for the musician.
"I'm a huge fan of her," he told PEOPLE of Swift, 33.
"I went to two of her shows. I think they were phenomenal and the whole nine for her," he added. "To be able to do all of those songs within three hours, oh my God. I ain't gonna lie, but it's an action-packed concert."
The "Fight the Power" rapper also said that "every lyric that she spits out relates to life."
"That's why I support her," Flav continued. "Because she's real. She keeps it real with her fans, and she's real with her music."
Flav previously opened up to TMZ in June about his decision to hit the Eras Tour for the first time in Detroit, explaining that he had "always been a big fan of her music" even before meeting Swift at the iHeartRadio Awards in March.
"Just like I’m a big fan of Christina Aguilera, or Gwen Stefani, or I love me some Miley Cyrus. You know what I'm sayin'? You’ll find me at their concerts, too," he said at the time. "And a lot of people thought it was kind of weird seeing me at a Taylor Swift concert, I guess because of my age ... But, you know, when it comes down to music, it has no age. Music don’t have no age."
The rapper, who added that he's "just trying to be swift like Taylor, baby," also revealed that he made some new pals at Detroit's Ford Field.
"Also, I want to give out — most of all — a big thanks to all the Taylor Swift fans, man," he said. "That gave me love while I was at the concert, ‘cause I have more bracelets than anybody in the world, and it felt so good getting all that love from them."
