Chuck D once cited Knicks commentator Marv Albert as an influence on his Rapping, I kid you not!

Marv, or Marv's hair hat?

Hey, isn't it kind of early for you to be here tonight?! ;D

From Rolling Stone's review of Fear of a Black Planet:

Meanwhile, Chuck D. challenged listeners to question their assumptions about white America and the black community with a booming baritone voice (he said that his biggest vocal influence was sports announcer Marv Albert), while his friend and comic sidekick William Drayton (who became Flavor Flav as he donned ridiculous sunglasses and hung a giant clock around his neck) deftly tap-danced through the mix, cracking wise and seconding his pal's heaviest pronouncements ("Yeee-ah!").

There you go...
