Has anyone ever flexed on accident? Probably. More often than not, though, if you’re going to flex on someone or something, it’s usually premeditated.
But just in case you had any doubts, Atlanta rapper Ralo calls on Young Thug, Lil Uzi Vert and 21 Savage to make sure you know he is “Flexing On Purpose” — and you should, too.
Ralo explained to Complex, who premiered the song, how the collaboration between the four came together:
“The song came together at Young Thug video shoot for ‘Big Racks,'” Ralo said. “Thug asked me to be in the video and Lil Uzi was on the song. I’ve known Thug for years, growing up in Atlanta and we reconnected on the music tip. Thug introduced me to Lil Uzi and we chopped it about doing a record.” … “I connected with 21 through Shy Glizzy. When Shy comes to Atlanta he’ll come to my crib. One day he brought 21 Savage through and the rest is history.”
“Flexing On Purpose” will land on Ralo’s Diary of the Streets II, set to drop August 30.
