What does dab of ranch mean?
This dab of ranch doesn’t go on a salad … it goes on your wrist.
Dab of ranch is hip-hop slang for “encrusted with diamonds,” most notably on a Rolex watch.
Where does dab of ranch come from?
Dab of ranch started with the viral dance trend, the dab, popularized by the 2015 hit song “Look At My Dab” by the city’s own hip-hop group, Migos.
In 2016, Rap Snacks, a food brand selling rapper-inspired snacks, made a flavor for Migos. Since the trio was so heavily associated with the dab, Rap Snacks created potato chips seasoned with sour cream and a dab of ranch dressing. The chips even came with their own jingle, “Dab of Ranch,” by Migos.
Then came brother hip-hop artists Ayo & Teo. On their 2017 song “Rolex,” they rapped a “Rollie with a dab of ranch,” or a blinged-out Rolex wristwatch. The hit song helped spread dab of ranch as slang for diamonds on luxury watches.
