Offset initially disliked “Ric Flair Drip,” expressing his reservations about the West Coast beat and not taking it seriously during the recording in 2017.
The track, featured on the collaborative album Without Warning with Metro Boomin and 21 Savage, was chosen by Metro for the final cut against Offset’s wishes. Despite Offset’s initial hesitation, the song quickly rose to No. 1 on Apple just days after its release, proving Metro right. In 2018, “Ric Flair Drip” earned Offset his first platinum record as a solo artist, subsequently achieving six times platinum status. The music video featured WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair, who also joined Offset on stage for a performance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. Ric Flair praised Offset as a phenomenal and genuine individual with immense talent, expressing admiration for his authentic and successful lifestyle.
