During a recent interview with GQ, the DS4Ever rapper declared himself the “King of Drip,” staking his claim to the fashion throne. He’s also known for promoting the term “drip,” according to the Atlanta native.
“Drip came from me trying to use another word instead of swag. ‘Cause we used to be swagged and you used to have flave, too. You used to even say swayver, like swag and flavor. You had to know. If you know, you know.
You had to be from Atlanta to know swayver and futuristic, like Black boy, white boy swag. And then we started to just drip. Now, we dripping, we spilling. It was just another era instead of swag.”
However, 21 Savage may disagree strongly with Gunna’s claim to be the “King of Drip.” In January, the Savage Mode rapper argued that Pharrell is the rightful owner of the crown, praising his consistency in putting outfits together.
