Flavor Flav to the rescue!

The former Public Enemy rapper boasted on Instagram Thursday that he’s going to bail out jailed Brooklyn hip-hop star Bobby Shmurda.

“Ay yo, Shmurda. Flavor Flav. We coming to get you out, baby,” the rapper said in the video about posting Shmurda’s $ 2 million bail to get him out of Rikers Island.

“We in the bank right now, B, we got dough,” added the reality TV star as he and an associate waived stacks of $ 100 bills.

The rapper, whose real name is Ackquille Pollard, was hit with a new perjury charge for allegedly lying to a grand jury weighing evidence that his gal pal tried to slip him a shank in jail. He’s seen being arraigned Thursday.

Just hours after Shmurda’s encouraging news, Bronx prosecutors hit Shmurda, whose real name is Ackquille Pollard, with a new perjury charge for allegedly lying to a grand jury weighing evidence that his gal pal tried to slip him a shank during a jail visit.

Shmurda, 20, pleaded not guilty to lying about the way officers searched him after he left the visit area, where Kimberly Rousseau allegedly slipped him a shiv stuffed inside a latex balloon in her bra.

Wearing a bright orange “DOC” get-up, Shmurda — whose “Shmoney Dance” went viral — also denied promoting prison contraband charges for the June 21 alleged smuggle.

He remains held on $ 2 million bail, charged by a special narcotics prosecutor with allegedly leading a violent Brooklyn gang responsible for several drug sales and shootings.
