Brevity is currently having a moment in hip-hop – hotly-tipped Chicago rapper Valee’s tracks frequently clock in at under two minutes – and it’s certainly Rae Sremmund’s friend: good with tunes, but not big on lyrical depth or spellbinding storytelling, their music works best when it hits you with its hooks, then scarpers quickly. In addition to two solo albums, Swae Lee’s Swaecation and Slim Jxmmi’s Jmxtro, it also features a collaborative effort: “Outkast fans, we still waiting on that, the next project with both of them together,” said their producer, clearly no great fan of Outkast’s admittedly flawed but undoubtedly collaborative 2006 follow-up Idlewild. Although it's clear that Rae Sremmurd is better when Slim Jxmmi and Swae Lee operate as a unit as displayed in the miraculous first disc, SR3MM still holds up as a solid three-disc album.
Review: Rae Sremmurd’s ‘Sr3mm’ Is a Triple Album Crackling With Promise The hip hop duo’s 27-track opus takes the electric chemistry that made them stars into rich new territory SR3MM is the third studio album by American hip hop duo Rae Sremmurd.It was released on May 4, 2018, by Ear Drummer Records and Interscope Records.The triple album also includes the debut solo studio albums by each of the duo, Swaecation by Swae Lee and Jxmtro by Slim Jxmmi. It's way, WAY too long and has some horrible features packed into way too many songs.
But it would have been nice to go on a journey. The collective album, overall, is more innovative, more daring, and flat-out riskier than its predecessors. Swae and Jxmmi not only place their partying ethos in the rock-star lineage but lobby to earn the same kind of respect as artists deemed “classic rock.” In shooting that gap, SR3MM ends up being their clearest personal statement yet, finding their voices almost coincidentally. The elevator pitch for the SR3MM/Swaecation/Jxmtro triptych is that having all three will allow the listener to see what both Swae Lee and Slim Jxmmi are capable of on their own, in addition to what they can do together. © 2020 Guardian News & Media Limited or its affiliated companies. That isn’t to say that what’s here isn’t good: it’s frequently very good indeed. But Rae Sremmurd’s rowdy, free-spirited, super-catchy songs are the perfect antidote for that cynicism; and since 2014’s less-is-more banger “No Flex Zone,” their music has grown lusher, their cadences more complex, making the leap to Sr3mm less of a stretch that it might seem. It’s just that the grandness of the presentation slightly oversells the contents. Take Close: concise and taut, based around a sinister keyboard figure and blessed with a surprisingly relaxed verse from Travis Scott, it is teeming with ideas. But as their longtime producer Mike Will Made It pointed out last week: “They only got 26 songs before this project. I don’t actually count those as part of the third SremmLife. The music on Swaecation accordingly tends towards the spacey and lovelorn – waves crash, guitars jangle, everything is drenched in echo and Lost Angels sounds not unlike the hazy, hypnagogic synthpop of Washed Out – and the words follow suit: “Colours burst and all I see are shapes, sun goes away and that’s when I call your name.” Jmxtro, meanwhile cleaves to a more straightforward, sparse trap blueprint, and the lyrical concerns are noticeably more earthy: “I’mma go fuck with the strippers tonight.”.
