The rap duo get a bit surreal in a new Dazed video
Rae Sremmurd are currently on a tour titled Dazed & Blazed, so it couldn’t be a better time for them to get blazed on Dazed.
The Mississippi-born rap duo (and brothers) are touring material from their new triple album, SR3MM – you might have caught them creating chaos at Wireless festival at the beginning of the month. The new release includes a solo album each from Slim Jxmmi and Swae Lee (titled Jxmtro and Swaecation, respectively), as well as a traditional album as a group. In honour of its release, when the duo were recently in London, we asked if they’d like to interview each other as solo artists.
Speaking to Dazed in a plush hotel room between puffs of smoke, they told us that they wanted to set a trend with their triple album. “This shit had never been done before, and we always innovative and we always push the game and shock the shit out of people,” Swae Lee explained. “Apparently some artists are dropping hella long albums just for streams, but we did it because we’re really just three different artists. Plus, if we do it first, everybody else can then copy us like they already do.”
Watch the hyperactive duo talk through their project, whether they’d slap the shit out of Donald Trump, and weird facts they don’t know about each other, above.
