Slim Jxmmi Slams Millyz For Using The Same “Stan” Sample As Swae Lee
It appears that there’s a competition of samples between Rae Sremmurd and Jadakiss co-signed rapper Millyz. The Boston-bred lyricist recently revealed a new song that samples Eminem’s hit record, “Stan.” Millyz interpolates Ditto’s hook over a pitched-up version of her melody that showcases his range while reflecting on his own hardships. “Even if I could, it would all be straight/ With this pistol on my waist/ It reminds me that I could die tonight, die tonight,” he sings on the hook.
Months prior, Rae Sremmurd’s Swae Lee lit up the Internet when he previewed a new song that also contained the same sample as Millyz’s latest record. On the record, Swae’s delicate vocals bring a youthful energy to the record. “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,” he raps. Just a few days ago, he suggested that he finally got the sample cleared for Sremm 4 Life.
Rae Sremmurd’s Swae Lee Vs. Millyz
Just before the release of “Tonight,” Millyz confirmed that he got Eminem’s blessing. “OMG WE CLEARED THE ‘STAN SAMPLE!!!” Millyz wrote. “DROPPIN 3/9 SALUTE TO THE [goat].” However, this led to Rae Sremmurd member Slim Jxmmi leaping into the comment section on Akademiks’ post to tear down Millyz’s upcoming single since it uses the same sample from Swae Lee’s upcoming release. “Naw this ain’t it fam! Sremm4 got the bangings version! Sample cleared!” Slim Jxmmi wrote.
Millyz ultimately shrugged off the Rae Sremmurd rapper’s comments, writing, “I cleared the sample too lil did u be aight.” While the comments spread across social media, ultimately landing on Akademiks’ page, Slim Jxmmi doubled down afterward, writing, “Wasn’t nobody on this sample till my brother leaked his version singing live.” Overall, Millyz appeared caught off-guard because he never expected to feud with the “No Flex Zone” duo. “Havin smoke w rae shermurd is crazy,” he wrote along with several laughing emojis. So far, Swae Lee hasn’t chimed in on the matter but we’ll have to wait until April 7th to hear what Rae Sremmurd has in store on Sremm 4 Life.

Rae Sremmurd Announced The Release Date For ‘Sremm4Life’ With Its Stylish New Artwork
Just when it seemed like the wait for Rae Sremmurd’s fourth album was becoming interminable, the sibling act from Tupelo, Mississippi announced the release date for Sremm4Life along with its minimalist album cover on Twitter. The release date will be one month from now, on April 7.
The artwork for the album closely follows the trend established with the first three installments of their Sremmlife albums, with a white background and both brothers mugging for the camera. This time, they’re decked out in stylish outfits, as Slim Jxmmi lies on his back and Swae Lee stands next to him, both throwing up four fingers to mark the milestone.

Fans were, understandably, pretty psyched to see the announcement, as we’ve all been waiting since 2018 for a follow-up to SR3MM, their third album, which consisted of three discs — a group album and a solo album for each brother. Since then, the Brown boys appeared in an episode of Lil Dicky’s FX comedy Dave, Swae Lee became a father while Jxmmi had a couple of run-ins with the law, and they released three new singles to promote the album.
“Denial” dropped last June, “Torpedo” came out at the end of the year, and their latest single, “Sucka Or Sum,” arrived in January. The album itself, Sremm4Life, is due 4/7 through EarDrummers / Interscope.

The 2023 NBA All-Star weekend is in the books. After JAY-Z’s opening video and before the players took the court, Post Malone and 21 Savage delivered a performance of their hit single “Rock Star.” The single was part of a medley of additional Post Malone singles.
Late last year, Post Malone’s single, “Sunflower,” which features Swae Lee, became the highest-certified single in the history of RIAA. The new single is officially 17x platinum.

Bow Wow & Swae Lee React To Being Left Off ‘Top 50 Greatest Rappers Of All Time” List
Another Top 50 Rappers list has sparked conversations, and Bow Wow and Swae Lee are weighing in. The hitmakers may occupy vastly different lanes in Hip Hop, but they are both respected, award-winning artists in their own rights. Billboard and Vibe recently partnered to unveil their picks for the Top 50 Greatest Rappers of All Time, and unsurprisingly, the choices caused debates among the genre’s enthusiasts. With only 50 picks, not everyone could be included, and Bow and Swae have chimed in about not seeing their names listed.
“I took no offense not making that list,” Bow tweeted. “I always said im not a rapper i am an entertainer.” He added he doesn’t ” like to be box’d in.” When a fan told him he should have been included, Bow simply expressed it was out of his control. Further, he didn’t seem bothered because he agreed with another supporter who remarked he was a legend.

Meanwhile, Swae Lee took a different approach. While in Arizona for the Super Bowl, TMZ caught up with Lee and asked his thoughts on the list. The rapper was unaware he wasn’t on it until the cameraperson told him. “That’s f*ckin’ wrong!” said the Rae Sremmurd star. “I got 20 No. 1s. We changing Rap!” When it was further noted that there weren’t any Rap groups listed, either, Swae doubled down that the list was inaccurate.
Then, he wanted to know if Future and Young Thug were included. It seemed that the list may have been correct if those two made it. When he learned that Jay-Z earned the top spot, Lee hesitated before saying, “That’s cool.” He added, “I feel like, it’s politics,” before declaring people should move away from the “old, traditional Rap scale.”

The top spots on Billboard and Vibe‘s list were also hot topics. Jay-Z took the No. 1 position, followed by (in order) Kendrick Lamar, Nas, Tupac Shakur, and Eminem. Swae isn’t the only person frustrated with the choices, as Ja Rule also complained after seeing he wasn’t listed, either.
Rae Sremmurd Shine On Their Carefree New Song ‘Sucka Or Sum’ Ahead Of A Potential Fourth Album
Rae Sremmurd returned with a brand new song, “Sucka Or Sum.” The duo members, Slim Jxmmi and Swae Lee, have put out a handful of songs recently, including “Torpedo,” “Denial,” and “Community D*ck” featuring Flo Milli.
They previously teased a snippet of the song in a Twitter video as they got fans excited by jamming out. Produced by Jaxx, “Sucka Or Sum” opens with a calming instrumental before dropping the booming beat.

The music video for the song finds the two brothers dressed as construction workers, in fancy suits, and just having a good time in their regular clothes. Add in some enticing visual effects, and it creates a seriously cool viewing experience.
Last May, Rae Sremmurd began teasing their long-awaited fourth studio album, which could potentially feature their latest few singles. “SREMM4LIFE,” they tweeted along with a photo of a “4” on fire. However, there is currently not a release date and only limited info about the project.

“We’ve got to give them something new, man. As an artist, it’s hard to be yourself, and I feel like with this album, it was like we’re not following a trend,” Jxmmi told GQ last year. “We want set the tone.”

Rae Sremmurd Performed ‘Torpedo’ On ‘Miley’s New Year’s Eve Party,’ Amplifying ‘Sremm4Life’ Watch
Rae Sremmurd dropped the video for “Torpedo” on Friday, December 30. It’s the latest single, following “Denial” and “Community D*ck” featuring Flo Milli, to amplify buzz that SREMM4LIFE is coming sooner than later. The buzz only got louder when Rae Sremmurd performed “Torpedo” on Miley’s New Year’s Eve Party last night, December 31. The NBC special aired live from Miami.
The two-hour show opened with Miley Cyrus and Dolly Parton, her co-host and godmother, singing “I Love Rock ‘N’ Roll” in matching leopard-print outfits. Up next: Rae Sremmurd, who started a medley with their 2016 No. 1 song “Black Beatles” before hitting “Torpedo.” They finished by venturing into the crowd for “No Type.”
Later in the show, Swae Lee returned to the stage for a “Party Up The Street” duet with Cyrus. Swae Lee, Cyrus and Mike Will Made-It, who co-produced with Andrew Watt, dropped the vibe-inducing song as part of Cyrus’ 2019 six-track EP She Is Coming.

In January 2022, Cyrus posted photos from the studio with Rae Sremmurd, Mike Will Made-It, and others. Andrew Watt, meanwhile, shared all the way back in June 2021 that he was planning on working on another album with Cyrus. Watt told Guitar World that the album was “still in the planning stages,” but it appears we’re close to Cyrus’ Plastic Hearts followup.
Cyrus confirmed during Miley’s New Year’s Eve Party and across her social media platforms that a new single, “Flowers,” is arriving on January 13, which may or may not purposely be on Liam Hemsworth’s birthday. Either way, we’re here for it.
Rae Sremmurd Drops Gritty Visual For ‘Torpedo’ As Another Teaser Of Their Upcoming Project ‘Sremm4Life’
Well, with just a few days left in the year, it looks like Rae Sremmurd’s long-awaited SREMM4LIFE project won’t hit streaming platforms until 2023. So far, the duo has released two singles from the album, “Denial” and “Community D*ck” featuring Flo Milli. To hold fans over until the project receives an official release date, brothers Swae Lee and Slim Jxmmi have dropped the video for their new single, “Torpedo.”
Co-produced by Sonny Digital and Austin Powerz, “Torpedo” is a complete departure from their past two singles. “Denial” was a melodic track about the rollercoaster of emotions that come with being in love, whereas “Community D*ck” was an attempt at the commercial rap sound with playful banter about the reckless sexual escapades of men. “Torpedo,” on the other hand, is explicitly made for the streets.
The video, co-directed by Matt Swinsky and Medet Shayakhmetov, quite literally showcases Rae Sremmurd and their posse enjoying what their native neighborhood has to offer — parking lot pimpin’, exotic car drag races, and hood highlife flexing, which is driven home as Swae Lee raps in the chorus, “Takin’ off to the money, torpedo / Now all the h*es tryna find me like Nemo / Pockets is tight as a speedo / Jet fuel makin’ me float / What exactly they mad at me for?”
