"Ramen & OJ" is a single by American rappers Joyner Lucas and Lil Baby, released on April 30, 2021, through Twenty Nine Music Group. It was produced by Tom French and Glazer.[1]


In an interview with Billboard, Joyner Lucas said that he became interested in collaborating with Lil Baby after hearing his song "Drip Too Hard".[2] "Ramen & OJ" was created via music-making app Tully, which Lucas co-founded with manager and technology entrepreneur Dhruv Joshi, who stated, "Joyner's creativity and collaboration with Lil Baby on 'Ramen & OJ' was amazing to watch because he was free to concentrate on what matters most. And I was right there with him because we built Tully to empower us to be able to succeed on our own terms."[3]

Lucas announced the song on April 22, 2021, and released it a week later.[4]


The song finds the rappers "harmonizing" about struggles in the past, newfound successes and future goals.[5][6] Lucas raps about being determined to make money at all costs,[5] and his old life in the chorus: "I can never go back to the old days, no way / Back to walkin' to work on a cold day / Back to thinkin' my ex was my soulmate / Back to tellin' myself, "We'll be okay", we'll be okay / Was survivin' off ramen and OJ / Shorty payin' the bills, I had no say". Lil Baby's verse also deals with his own past life.[1]
