This year, January was jam packed with great releases from a variety of artists. Some came to us as a surprise, others beating expectations, and some just simply getting it right. Check out some of the best releases the month of January had to offer.
Watch as the ‘No Flex Zone’ and ‘No Type’ rap duo Rae Sremmurd makes an appearance on “Highly Questionable” with Dan Le Batard and Bomani Jones on ESPN2. Peep the very entertaining video below as Rae Sremmurd answers questions about turning up, brotherly fights, and even Pat Sajak.
2014 was Rae Sremmurd’s year. In the summer, Rae Sremmurd (rappers Swae Lee and Slim Jimmy) released their first single ‘No Flex Zone’ through EarDrummers Entertainment (producer Mike WiLL Made-It’s Interscope Records imprint), making the track one of the summer’s anthems and an instant favorite on the internet. To kick-off the fall, the Mississippi rappers proved their doubters wrong by the release of their equally successful track ‘No Type’, making the duo two-for-two on making rap hits and quieting any one-hit-wonder predictions. Months later, and in just one week on January 6th, Rae Sremmurd is releasing their debut album SremmLife (available now for streaming), when rap fans did not know their name less than a year ago.
Every since the rap world was introduced to the Mississippi-natives Rae Sremmurd, the duo has been hitting the ground running with their very successful tracks ‘No Flex Zone’ and ‘No Type’. Now we have the group’s debut album SremmLife which is 11-tracks and features appearances by Nicki Minaj, Big Sean, and Young Thug and production by Mike Will Made It.
In a recent interview rap group Rae Sremmurd (‘No Flex Zone’), comprised of Swae Lee and Slim Jimmy, announced that two new projects are coming soon. Coming first will be the ‘No Type’ rapper’s EP SremmLife, which we can expect in “a month or so”, before the end of the year. This will get fans ready for their debut album, which Rae Sremmurd announced will come out in January 2015.
Last night we went to WGCI‘s 2014 Big Jam and it definitely delivered! With performances from Juicy J, Migos, Rae Sremmurd, Jeremih and many more, the night was even complimented with a surprise appearance by Chicago’s own, Chance the Rapper. Check out our photos from the Big Jam here!
