“You’re the man and I mean, you’re the man. Congratulations, my good friend, from the Nature Boy (…) Always keep styling and profiling, and live life as only Killer Mike can. God bless you.”

Earlier this year, shortly after, the veteran rapper won three Grammy Awards for him Michael album, Flair shared a video on social media congratulating him.

“Wow! It’s the Nature Boy,’ he said. “Shout out to my husband, my brother, Killer Mike – not one Grammy, not two but three Grammys! Are you joking? You’re the man! And to be the man, you have to beat the man. I don’t think you can be defeated, my brother.

The Run The Jewels MC was among those in attendance at Flair’s 75th birthday celebration later that month in Atlanta.

The WWE and WCW icon took to X (formerly Twitter) in late February to share some photos from the star-studded event. In addition to the “SCIENTISTS & ENGINEERS” hitmaker, Darius Rucker, Hulk Hogan and a number of other celebrities were also present at the meeting.

In the caption, Flair wrote: “Thank you to all my family and friends for coming together for such a special birthday party! It was a very sentimental evening for me! I am so blessed to be able to make these memories with all of you! At 75! WOOOOO!”

In 2015, Killer Mike released a song titled “RIC FLAIR,” on which he raps, “To get through the icy city streets / You better have a Christopher word game, witty / You better have a dance game that looks like Diddy / Or play b-ball above the rim like Smitty.”
