Review: Rae Sremmurd – Sremmlife

Rae Sremmurd by The Come Up Show

Last year brothers Swae Lee and Slim Jimmy aka Rae Sremmurd released two haul-ass bangers that established them high in regard amongst the hip hip community. ‘No Type’ and ‘No Flex Zone’ became their flagship tracks, being featured on the US top 100 charts, setting the bar high for their latest album release Sremmlife.

Released earlier this month on Interscope and EarDrummer records, each of the 11 tracks leave your speakers wobbling. There is a consistent style of fresh productions throughout thanks to Mike WiLL (owner of Ear Drummers Entertainment), and these brothers from Elvis Presley’s hometown Tupelo rap about pretty hedonistic themes, “We brought hoes to the party, we fuck bad bitches only”.

Though the album in its entirety has some fresh productions and themes, it seems to conclude itself with a rather pitiful track entitled ‘Safe Sex Pay Checks’, which feels more like a corporate hit full of PC messages for the youth, and cheesy productions reminiscent from mainstream Hollywood movies.

Saying that, the album flows fluidly with some dancefloor hits like ‘No Type’ & ‘No Flex Zone’ and more kickback chill numbers like ‘Up Like Trump’. Sremmlife has been well received by critics and its easy to see why, with the brothers acrobatic flow, and tight bass heavy productions. Im sure we will being seeing more from this fresh faced family duo.
