The legend of ‘Ric Flair: Hip-Hop Icon’ continues to grow

“Ric Flair Drip” a track off Offset, 21 Savage and Metro Boomin’s album Without Warning came out last fall.

It was the latest hip-hop shout out to The Nature Boy, following mentions by Pusha T, a whole song dedicated to him by Killer Mike, a “Presidential campaign” with Waka Flocka Flame, Snoop Dogg appearing in his ESPN 30 For 30 documentary... on and on.
