The iconic Ric Flair has always been respected in hip-hop. Last week, Offset, Metro Boomin and 21 Savage brought Flair into their world, enlisting him for a memorable appearance in the long-overdue “Ric Flair Drip” video. The clip continues to trend, currently sitting at 8.1 million views in a mere five days; if that’s not a testament to Ric’s longevity, I don’t know what is. Clearly, the veteran wrestler still has a thing or two to teach the youngsters with regards to stylin’ and prilin’. In the wake the video’s premiere, Ric Flair sat down with Revolt to discuss his foray into the hip-hop game, working with Offset, and more.
Apparently, Ric knew that Offset was a fan, which lead to their respective teams trying to make something happen. When Offset’s camp asked if Ric wanted to be in the video, his answer was an immediate “Hell yeah.” He goes on to drop heaps praise on the Migos rapper, calling him “a phenomenal young man. So respectful, so just genuine. He’s a real guy. Great music. He’s just living that life; that life that I love.”
The praise doesn’t stop. In fact, it intensifies. “He’s smart, he’s articulate, and he got it all going on,” says Flair. “The guy’s got so much damn talent, it would be hard to hold him back even if they tried. He’s a phenomenal guy.”
