*Public Enemy rapper Flavor Flav was ticketed for speeding and driving without a license en route to his mother’s funeral in suburban New York.

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.

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.
