Offset and Metro Boomin were joined by the actual inspiration for their hit "Ric Flair Drip" when they brought out retired wrestling legend during their performance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. Known for his signature "Wooo" yells and his flamboyant robes, Ric Flair came onstage to strut around in the makeshift wrestling ring. Offset was wearing a purple and yellow Ric Flair-inspired robe and paced around the ring with the stride of a wrestler as he rapped the track off his 2017 collaborative LP with 21 Savage, Without Warning. The Roots provided the live backing track for the visually impressive performance.
Ric Flair also appeared in the music video for "Ric Flair Drip," where the 69-year-old styled and profiled with the new stars of hip hop. Flair posted a series of photos on his Twitter account from backstage at Fallon. Joining them in the photos are Offset's fiancé and mother of his child, Cardi B, and producer Metro Boomin.

Offset also provided a comedy bit for Fallon where he rapped a recipe for chicken stir fry in the Migos' signature staccato flow in a reference to their Pharell-produced single, "Stir Fry."
"In the skillet, gonna spill it over white rice/ Grab a tablespoon of cornstarch and the soy sauce," he rapped. "Give me that ginger, garlic and sugar, makin' a nice broth/ Veggies on deck, check; yeah, carrots and red pepper strips/ and water chestnuts, peas; I'm hungry – I'm ready to mix/ You stir with some oil; you can turn up the heat/ Then you bring to a boil as you add in the meat/ Blend properly; my marinade is the best quality/ In my wok, I see my chicken and plenty of broccoli/ Chopsticks, plate, sriracha, delish/ Keep the leftovers chillin' in the fridge."
