Offset Says He ‘Hated’ ‘Ric Flair Drip’ Before Metro Boomin Put It Out

The hit single ended up being six times platinum.

Offset wasn’t a big fan of one of his biggest hits.

During an interview with Billboard’s Carl Lamarre on The Debut Live podcast in October, the Migos rapper said he didn’t give much effort when recording the track because he thought it was just for fun.

“I hated the song,” he recalls. “It was a West Coast beat — I’m not saying nothing like that — but it was, like, during this time it’s 2017… When I did it, I didn’t take it serious. I’m like, ‘Goin’ to the jeweler, bust the AP, yeah,’ like I’m not trying.”

Set then explained that it was Metro Boomin who convinced him that the song would be a smash. The track appears on the pair’s joint album Without Warning with 21 Savage.

“I’m like, ‘Bruh, don’t put this song on the album,’” he explained. “He put it on the album. I wake up to it in the morning like, ‘Man, this n***a put the song on the album.’”

“I’ll never forget, like three days later, we [were] No. 1 on Apple, and he [was] like, ‘I told you. I do this s**t!’” Offset continued of the hit, now six-times platinum certified by the RIAA.
