PLAYLIST ∙ 2022
Ah yes, “Rich Flex,” the song that launched a thousand memes. Drake and 21 Savage delivered their Her Loss project to near unanimous adulation, but there was something about the way The Boy set up 21’s “Rich Flex” verse that had the internet in stitches. Agents provocateurs the world over—most visibly on Twitter—attached cartoon clips of all kinds to the part where Drake sings, “21, can ya do something for me,” in an attempt to dilute the camaraderie the MCs share. There were a couple funny ones, for sure. But what we’ll remember, inevitably, is that the song slaps. Listen to “Rich Flex” on Rap Life, the playlist at the forefront of hip-hop culture today, and if you hear something you like, add it to your library.
