Smokin’ Dro Week 8 – “Ric Flair”

Posted by J. Tinsley on October 28, 2010

Do you know what today is? It’s “Smokin’ Dro’s” eight week anniversary. Pending my first grade math is still sharp, eight weeks equates to two months which means a long-term relationship for those with a fear of commitment. As with any bond, however, arguments will happen. So what better way to tie it in than with one of Hip-Hop’s most unique wordsmiths and a song titled after one of sports and entertainment’s most iconic sh!t talkers. WOOOOO!  

Song: “Ric Flair”

Source: Lo Life

Favorite Dro-ism: Dro, you know the rims I ride on knee-high/I be hurtin’ niggas so bad, it make me cry/Light skin paint on the Chevy, that thing T.I./Chain notorious, call that thing B.I.

Lifted Thoughts: Depending which story is told on what day of the week, Lo Life was intended to be Dro’s sophomore album – or at least most of it was. There were the good moments weaved in between the not-so-good, but “Ric Flair” was one of the positives. Then again, there’s also the story of this being some guy named Lil Cali’s record which was slated to be the next big dance craze to sweep the nation. I’m assuming the “Dougie” was simply to powerful to ignore and it just never really caught on.

Regardless, it’s the shortest time-wise of any of the installments we’ve seen thus far, but it’s just just as entertaining. There are your normal materialistic mentions all throughout his verse, so it’s nothing introspective to use in everyday life or anything of that nature. Yet, this type of 16 will always be more entertaining when Young Dro gets to explain its awesomeness.
