Rae Sremmurd have explained all the ways they believe they’ve changed the face of what Hip Hop looks and sounds like.
“Some of the biggest influences we had, this haircut first of all. When we came in the game with the shaved sides and the dreads on the top, that just changed the game,” Swae said.
“We came with the AutoTune and the heavy reverb. You know, the melodies and the high-pitched singing tones and all that stuff. It definitely trickled down to a lot of people.”
Slim Jxmmi brought up their eccentric fashion sense and added: “I feel like we made it cool to be yourself. A lot of people do the same things, make the same type of vibes. We make different type of music, it’s fun.
“Anybody could listen to it. My brother, he say this all the time: it doesn’t matter what type of life you’re living, we got music anybody could [listen to]. ‘I ain’t got no type.’ I don’t care what you do, everybody could vibe with that. Male, female, it doesn’t even matter. We make international music that way.”
The fervid brothers hailing from Mississippi came storming out of the gate while putting the Hip Hop world on notice with a string of anthems in the mid-2010s such as “No Type,” “Come Get Her,” “Swang,” “Black Beatles,” “No Flex Zone,” “Throw Sum Mo” and more.
With Gucci Mane’s help on “Black Beatles,” Swae and Jxmmi earned their first Billboard Hot 100 No. 1 hit when the track reached the apex in November 2016.
After nearly five years between projects, Rae Sremmurd returned with their highly-anticipated Sremm 4 Life album last week (April 7) featuring Young Thug and Future.
Meanwhile, Swae Lee has finally explained how his penis ended up going viral on social media after accidentally posting a video of his privates to his Instagram Story in December 2018.
The singer/rapper explained to Bootleg Kev on Tuesday (April 11) that his intention was to really show off a new stomach tattoo, but since he didn’t have any pants on and raised the camera angle too high, it ended up bringing his exposed groin area into the frame.
