10 Songs That Made Ric Flair A Hip-Hop Icon

9. Ric Flair (Wooo!) - SWIDT

Ric Flair:

plural noun - abundant and valuable possessions; wealth.

I've got the style and profile like never before. Let me go on record as telling the whole world, to be the man, you gotta beat the man and I'm saying I'm the man - Ric Flair

"I've got that Ric Flair, wooo! Limousine riding, jet flying kiss stealing, wheeling dealing, son of a gun"

On their debut album, Stoneyhunga, released in 2017, the Polynesian hip-hop group (who refer to themselves as 'The Most Electrifying Rap Group in Entertainment') dropped the slept on trap banger 'Ric Flair (Wooo!)

"Satin, suede, cotton, polyester/I'm the !*$% flyest Poly ever"

Channeling the Nature Boy's TBS promos (one of which intro's the song) SWIDT's playfully boast of having the "style and profile" and rocking only the finest fabrics (and polyester) were straight of Naitch's textbook artifice.

Scooping Best Hip-Hop and Best Group gongs at the New Zealand Music Awards in 2017, the Kiwi collective's homage to Naitch proved that Flair country extended all the way to Mauri communities in New Zealand.
