In episode 4 of UNDISPUTED‘s “#SkipRidesTheTrollerCoaster” series, which lets Skip Bayless answer questions that he could never answer on the sports show, the American sports columnist explains where his nickname “Drip Bayless” came from.

Skip reveals the background of his nickname first started in July of this year when his “close friend” Lil Wayne gifted him, Shannon Sharpe and Jenny Taft each with a necklace that had their names on, which left him “shocked” and “honored”.

“He [Lil Wayne] simply has the biggest, greatest heart of any human I have ever encountered. I do trust him and count on him as a very close friend. My wife Ernestine has gotten to know him and is actually becoming friends with Wayne’s lady. The bond is pretty deep.”
