I’ll never forget when Rae Sremmurd first came out I really hated their music and I have no idea what came over me because now I consider them Kris Kross 2.0… Kris Kross jumped so Rae Sremmurd could fly.. they really don’t have a bad album and I hold them to a high regard now.. SremmLife 3 or SR3MM is here, the triple album.
I loved this idea so much because it’s the 3rd installment of SremmLife and they always reinvent themselves each time they drop.. we have the duo’s album “SR3MM“, Swae Lee’s “Swaecation” and Slim Jxmmi’s “Jxmtro“.
27 songs in total but 9 for each section.. Travi$ Scott, The Weeknd, Future and Juicy j featured on SR3MM.. Young Thug featured on Swaecation.. Zoë Kravitz, Pharrell and Trouble featured on Jxmtro. SR3MM is everything and more that I wanted from Rae Sremmurd.. bangers, the beats and hooks on here are perfect… from Swae Lee singing “you’re too c l o s e to meeee” to The Weeknd singing “tell me ya knoooooow“, I love the vibes.. oh and that “42” beat is so weird but I love it.
Swaecation is just beach side vibes.. summer evenings, sunsets, palm trees, cold drinks, floral button up t-shirts... that’s the imagery I get from this section of the album.. I love this sound from Swae Lee, I want him to polish and expand on this direction though, I see him getting even better.
Jxmtro… why is Slim Jxmmi snapping like this? He’s rapping like he is fed UP with people trying to break the group up and saying Swae Lee carries him like LeBron.. nah, Jxmmi came with heat too.. straight bangers and fly talk.. I always thought Jxmmi was fire though so this is just solidifying it.
Give this a listen.. I know 27 songs sounds like you gotta take off work to listen but it’s really not that bad.. lots of personality on this project.. i’m curious where Rae Sremmurd goes from here.
