Rae Sremmurd are staying busy working and getting prepared to come through with their new album that’s due to hit before year end, in the meantime the duo have dropped a ‘country music’ inspired visual for ‘Come Get Her’ from the ‘SremmLife‘ project.
I caught up with Swae Lee at Reading Festival a few weeks back, after he performed a set on stage after his brother Slim Jimmy got caught out with some pretty heavy food poisoning.
So whats happening with you guys, you came on the scene real quick and killed the clubs, you changed the game, bangers, whats next?
We about to drop another single, a video, another album, we just going crazy, the album coming in December, the single coming in the next couple months, we just gonna keep on elevating.
Whats the single?
It’s called ‘Over Here’ its gonna be a little banger, a trap banger.
Now you got an unfair advantage cos you work with Mike Will and you’ve worked with a lot of people like Nicki Minaj and Pusha T. So who you looking to work with next?
Somebody, everybody – hopefully somebody I haven’t worked with yet, of course, and some hopefully some crossover artists as well, I wanna do it all, I wanna touch all elements of the music world.
I heard your ‘Nightcrawler’ joint with Travi$ its crazy..
Oh you heard it already, woah you’re way ahead bro, thats dope, thats about to drop, thats crazy too, shout out to my boy Travis we’re lit.
What do you think of Travi$ Scott because with what you guys are doing, Young Thug’s doing, it’s kinda like a new wave, it’s a different movement. How important would you say Travi$ Scott is to the game now?
He definitely got his own lane, he got his own wave, we all turning up, all young folks just turning up, just leaders, leaders of the next wave, when it crash.
Who inspires you as an MC?
My brother, just all life experiences just keep me motivated, keep me going, the bottom just keep me going.
How you finding the U.K?
I love the U.K, I hate that I only got a short stay, I really wanna stay longer, but I’ll be back.
Is that the first time you did a show by yourself?
2nd, the first time we was in New York at the Governors Ball with Drake, and Slim Jimmy had jumped on a spotlight and cut his leg open. Its the 2nd time, he had to leave the stage and I just had to keep the show rocking. But that was the first time, actually the answer is yes, that was the first time I had to do a show completely by myself like starting up. It was pretty lit, the crowd was with me.
Who you feeling in the game right now, who are you listening to?
Right now, Young Thug, Bankroll Fresh, I listen to all genres too, I listen to some alternate genres, I might even not know the name to the song I’m listening to, I’m just listening to it just vibe out.
Whats your favourite joint off the Future album?
I like that ‘Freak Hoes’, Future go crazy man, that be my favourite artist for a long time.
