21 Savage and Offset rekindle the magic from "Ric Flair Drip."


Offset is spreading his seed everywhere, no pun intended. But his latest collaboration with 21 Savage is no "mail-order" collaboration, considering the history they share as co-conspirators, which bore the song "Ric Flair Drip" if nothing else. So why does it work so well, when 21 and Offset come together on wax? The answer is no simpler than a reconstructed model of the Universe.

On "1.5" Offset and 21 Savage make things simple for themselves. The I Am > I Was cut is just the type of "story" that you jump into without needing much of a debriefing. 21 flexes-a-plenty, without losing his dark ilk. Offset, more disposed to "couping the wrist," brings his truncated flow to the cutting room floor, as though we'd never heard or seen him flex before. Welcome to the walkthrough as narrated by 21 Savage and his flashier compatriot. "1.5" is worth a spin for one reason alone: my shortlisted pick for "favorite line of the year." See below in the quotable section.

Quotable Lyrics:

Pockets on Cheez-Its, heavy on the cheddar
Run off with your money, Savage a.k.a. Jerry Heller 
Too much drip, I'm rainin', bought a Gucci umbrella
Why you always trippin' bitch? You must look up to Ella 
It's only the first night and she keep tryna snuggle 
I slept on my back just so I ain't have to cuddle.
