Flavor Flav performed the national anthem at Sunday’s NBA game between the Atlanta Hawks and Milwaukee Bucks.

The Public Enemy rapper may not seem like an obvious candidate to sing the “Star-Spangled Banner.” However, in a social media post following his performance, he revealed that the “anthem was a long time bucket list item.”

He also addressed critics of his rendition, writing: “I can’t live my life worried about what people might say about me. I won’t let that stop me from trying new things and doing things I wanna do. Some people might not like that. But a sure failure is if you stop trying.”
