Plies Credits His Brother for Ran Off on the Plug Dance
Anyone who follows Plies on Instagram knows he is one of the wildest rappers in the game. While his 15-second clips offer hilarity, the Florida rapper rarely does long interviews, but with his Ain't Not Mixtape Bih 2 still picking up steam and "Ran Off On Da Plug Twice" dance still dominating social media, the Florida native has been making the rounds.
During an interview with DJ Whoo Kid, Plies revealed that his brother told him to put the dance in the video to his "Ran Off on da Plug Twice" song (formerly known as "Ritz Carlton") after seeing the b-roll footage. "I give my brother credit for that," said the rapper. "To keep it G, when we shot the video and edited the video, I sent the video to [my brother] and he looked at it and said it was missing something...I told him I think I got something that we ain't put in there and I think if we put it in here it'll work....I sent it to my brother and he hit me back and said, 'This is what I'm looking for.' It made my situation easier, he's my brother and according to him, he feels like my biggest fan so if he's cool with something I feel like 99.9 percent of people will fuck with it."
Plies' recent ascent has a lot to do with his popularity on social media, so Whoo Kid asked about using social media to expand his fan base. "It's hard for me to gauge it because I don't really understand social media still," he said. "I understand it enough to operate through it but I don't really wake up and think, 'I gotta be on the 'Gram,' or, 'I gotta be on Twitter.' Like I tell my brother, I don't really want to understand, I just want to keep doing it."
Finally, the "Outchea" rapper commented on his health and whether or not he's a vegan. "What's a vegan? I ain't no muthafuckin' vegan. I ain't in to no healthy, man. Fuck healthy. It's good for other people but everything I like is bad."
Plies and Whoo Kid also touch on his $100 and under rule for women, his cover of Adele's "Hello," betting with Kirk Franklin, the difference between corporate popping and street popping and more.
