Hip-Hop Duo Rae Sremmurd to Release Debut Album 1/6
SremmLife, the highly anticipated debut album from hip-hop duo Rae Sremmurd, will be available for digital pre-order beginning Tuesday, December 9, with the album officially released on January 6, 2015. Executive Produced by Mike WiLL Made-It (Producer of the Year at the 2013 BET Hip Hop Awards and executive producer of Miley Cyrus' #1 Bangerzand Future's Honest, which debuted atop the Billboard Hip-hop and R&B charts), SremmLife marks the first release from his Ear Drummer Records/Interscope Records imprint.
"It's dope to see these guys work hard and stay humble, to come from nothing and become a part of the Ear Drummer movement - our family - working sun up to sun down, recording, coming up with new ideas. The impact is so strong now. It's amazing to see "No Flex Zone" and "No Type," two songs that we did last year, become two of the biggest singles this year, to have the cultural impact that they're having.
"The album came together so easily and organically - it was really a fun album to make. I'm just as excited about this album as I was about Miley Cyrus's album, as I was about Future's album. This album is as special to me as any project I've ever been involved with. People are learning now that these guys are superstars, they're here to stay.SremmLifeis just round one."
Celebrating the announcements, Rae Sremmurd will perform their new hit, "No Type," on NBC's "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon" on Tuesday, December 2. "No Type" has hit the Top 5 at Urban radio and #16 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart as well as #6 R&B and #4 Rap. The next single from SremmLife will be "Throw Sum Mo" featuring Nicki Minaj and Young Thug.
Rae Sremmurd, the duo of real-life brothers Swae Lee and Slim Jimmy were born and raised in Tupelo, Mississippi. They were signed to Ear Drummer Records, and in May released their debut single "No Flex Zone," a Top 40 hit on the Billboard Hot 100 (#11 R&B and #8 Rap).
Mike WiLL Made-It has scored a dozen gold, platinum or double platinum hits since just 2012, including for Future, Kanye West, 2 Chainz, Rihanna, Lil Wayne, and Drake, plus Miley Cyrus' massive pop hit "We Can't Stop" and his own 2013 debut single "23," featuring Cyrus, Wiz Khalifa, and Juicy J.
