Slim Jxmmi has thrown shade at Millyz‘s flip of Eminem‘s “Stan” and claimed that Rae Sremmurd has a better version on the way.
Millyz recently saluted Slim Shady for clearing the sample for him to use on his new single “Tonight,” while sharing a preview of the song from his bedroom studio on Instagram.
But Slim Jxmi, whose groupmate Swae Lee previously teased a remake of “Stan” on TikTok in August 2022, took to the comments section to dismiss Millyz’s version while hyping up Rae Sremmurd’s upcoming song on SREMM4LIFE.
“Naw this ain’t it fam!” Jxmmi wrote under Millyz’s post. “Sremm4 got the banging version! Sample cleared!”
Millyz replied: “I cleared the sample too lil dude u be aight.”
Swae Lee’s aforementioned TikTok video has over five million views and found him changing the “Stan” chorus to lyrics about lean and racks.
“My lean’s gone cold I’m wondering why I, got out of bed at all/ 3.5 clouds up my window, and I can’t see at all/ And even if I could it would all be great, with these racks stacked up too tall/ It reminds me that it’s not so bad, it’s not so bad at all,” he sang in the clip.
Slim Jxmmi also hopped in the comments section of Akademiks’ Instagram post to claim Millyz’s idea to use the song came from Swae Lee’s video.
“Wasn’t nobody on this sample till my brother leaked his version singing live,” he wrote.
Millyz revealed Eminem had cleared the “Stan” sample on Instagram on Tuesday (March 7), writing: “OMG WE CLEARED THE ‘STAN SAMPLE!!!” Millyz wrote. “DROPPIN 3/9 SALUTE TO THE [goat].”
He added in the comments: “I shot a video to it just to put on YouTube, never thought we’d get it cleared! Anything’s possible!! BLANCO 6 4/7/23.”
The song in question, “Tonight,” dropped on Friday (March 10) along with its accompanying music video.
Rae Sremmurd, meanwhile, announced this week that their new album SREMM4LIFE is set to be released on April 7. The latest single, “Tanisha (Pump That),” dropped on Friday.
It will be the duo’s first album since 2018’s SR3MM, which peaked at No. 6 on the Billboard 200 and featured Travis Scott, The Weeknd, Future, Pharrell, Young Thug, Juicy J, Trouble and Zoë Kravitz.
