15 Other Ric Flair Rants Rappers Should Sample

You’ve probably heard it before. Pusha T has sampled it. Rick Ross has done the same. It’s Ric Flair’s “What Dreams Are Made Of” rant that hip-hop has broken down word for word. In our world, boasting about your stance in the game and flashing your riches is nothing new. The way Flair did it though? Charismatic. Intense. And full of swagger. Don’t believe us? Here’s a reminder:

“It’s so hard for me to sit back here in this studio, looking at a guy out here, hollering my name!—When last year I spent more money, on spilled liquor, in bars from one side of this world to the other, than you made! You’re talking to the Rolex wearing, diamond ring wearing, kiss stealing, whoa! wheelin dealin’, limosuine riding, jet flying son of a gun and I’m having a hard time holding these alligators down!”

Throughout Flair’s multi-decade career, he was able to put on a great performance on the microphone for his promos and interviews. It has supplied him with some of the best rants we’ve ever seen live on television. To help out rappers who want to pay homage to the man again, here are 15 other memorable moments that have produced some timeless catchphrases. Use any of these to give your next hip-hop track an added cool.—Eric Diep
