Da’Zyna is uncertain about whether or not to reach out to her dad, Flavor Flav, in the wake of their fight. Da’Zyna talks with Young Dirty Bastard about what’s going on in this EXCLUSIVE preview of ‘GUHHNY.’
Da’Zyna is currently working with her brother on his music and admits she’s a little “discouraged” because he wants their dad, Flavor Flav, to work on it. In our EXCLUSIVE preview of the Sept. 5 episode of the show, Da’Zyna reveals that Flavor Flav said he didn’t have time to help at the moment. The whole situation is pretty uncomfortable for Da’Zyna considering her current relationship with her father. “Me and my dad don’t really talk, you know, especially with what happened with the arrest and things like that,” she says. Da’Zyna was arrested in 2012 after a family fight.
“Do I really want to open up these wounds with my father? Do I really want to go there knowing that it could be dragged?” she asks herself. Young Dirty Bastard listens to everything Da’Zyna has to say and opens up about his father, Ol’ Dirty Bastard. He gives some advice to Da’Zyna. “Overpower whatever he’s got going,” he tells her. “‘Cause the future is better for y’all.” Da’Zyna’s got a lot to think about.
