Swae Lee has opened up about some of his early dating years and shared a story about one of the most heartbreaking experiences of his life.
During an interview with the Million Dollaz Worth of Game podcast on Sunday (April 9), Swae Lee, along with his brother and Rae Sremmurd rhyme partner, Slim Jxmmi, talked about their newly released project, Sremm 4 Life, their career and legacy, their creative process, and much more.
As part of the conversation, the pair were asked about their dating experiences before fame. Swae Lee opened up about one of his first serious relationships.
There is no doubt that both the rapper and his brother struggled financially in the early days of their careers. This may have contributed to his ex’s decision to leave him for a truck driver, he said.
Apparently, the truck driver she left him for made more than $7000 per month.
“So boom, she came up to the crib one day — I ain’t got no furniture, we sitting on the floor — [like] ‘Swae, I can’t be with you anymore,'” he said.
He continued: “I’m getting ready to move to Atlanta and work with Ear Drummers and make this whole journey like you know what I’m saying? I’m like ‘huh you finna leave me?’ Boy, I’m shedding tears n-gga.”
Check out the pair’s complete interview below:
Slim Jxmmi, Swae’s brother, recently opened up about another first love, but it wasn’t romantic. Recently, the rapper revealed that he admired Eminem as a rapper growing up, referring to him as his “favorite rapper” and even attempting to emulate him.
During a recent interview with The Bootleg Kev Podcast, the pair were asked about one song in particular on their new album, “Not So Bad (Leans Gone Cold),” which features a sample from Eminem’s “Stan” — and was at the center of a spat they had with Millyz.
When asked about their connection to Slim Shady, the two noted that despite being from Mississippi, they were greatly influenced by him.
Then Slim Jxmmi took it a step further and revealed that he actually used to try and rap like Em.
“That was definitely my favorite rapper [growing up],” he explained. “Man what, I used to do all that ‘Hi, my name is’ [stuff]. I used to like the way he rapped. I [even] used to try and rap like him at one point in time in my life.”
