Rae Sremmurd Preps For 'SR3MM' By Unleashing Three New Singles

Rae Sremmurd looks to swing the momentum of the year in their directions with three new singles.

The dynamite duo, Rae Sremmurd, are looking to swing the momentum of the year in their directions by unleashing three new singles, “Powerglide,” “Hurt To Look,” and “Brxnks Truck.” Ever since their introduction, the Mississippi-based rap group has been on an overwhelming streak of success. But from their 2015 radio-friendly Sremmlife to the cult favorite that is “Black Beatles,” fans have witnessed Swae Lee and Slim Jxmmi’s growth as both individual artists and as a collective. Because of this, Rae Sremmurd announced that they will use 2018 to not only release their third album, SR3MM, but to also premiere their debut solo projects, Swae’s Swaecation and Jxmmi’s Jxmtroduction.

And with the three singles they dropped today ("Hurt to Look," "Brxnks Truck" and "Powerglide") hip-hop is getting its first official taste of how the Eardrumma signees will coordinate their three-pronged attack. For SR3MM cut “Powerglide,” the group’s boss, Mike Will Made, keeps in tune with smash singles like “No Limit” and “Plain Jane” by sampling the classic Memphis collective Three 6 Mafia for the instrumental. He keeps it current by bending their song “Side 2 Side” into a beat that feels at home as the trapped out intro for Need For Speed. In addition to sampling Three 6 Mafia, Rae Sremmurd chose enlists trippy veteran and one of Three 6’s founding members, Juicy J, to be featured on the single.

While “Powerglide” is reminiscent of the bangers we are used to hearing from Rae Sremmurd, it’s the solo tracks that accompany this hit where we see the direction of the duo’s separate projects. On “Hurt to Look,” Swae Lee adds his pop personality and crossover potential to an island-infused vibe. Aversely, Slim Jxmmi’s “Brxnks Truck” deepens him into the core of Southern Trap, as the song is equipped with bass-heavy production that can only be described as "infectiously dark."

Through these three songs, fans can gather that both Swae Lee and Slim Jxmmi have matured past their youthful, Vine-themed, first album to a point where they are ready to explore their separate creative paths. With "Hurt to Look," "Brxnks Truck," and "Powerglide," Rae Sremmurd may be drawing inspiration from their ATLien forefathers as their new singles imply that they are preparing hip-hop for a more modern rendition of Outkast’s Speakerboxxx/The Love Below.

DJ Paul Sues Travis Scott For Copyright Infringement

DJ Paul has filed a multi-million dollar copyright infringement lawsuit against Travis Scott for allegedly stealing his music.

According to TMZ, the Three 6 Mafia member accuses Scott of snatching a portion of the hook from his 1997 track “Tear Da Club Up,” for “No Bystanders” off the 27-year-old rapper’s Astroworld album.

Paul claims that the hooks to both songs are “virtually identical and strikingly similar,” reports The Blast. The lawsuit also notes that the songs sound so much alike that Scott changed his lyrics from to “f**k da club up,” “tear the club up” during his Grammys performance in February, without Paul's permission.

The Memphis native is asking for at least $20 million in damages. However, TMZ reported that Scott reached out to Paul sometime Tuesday (April 23) to potentially work out the legal matter.

The “Sicko Mode” rapper has faced multiple lawsuits over the last two years, including being sued for canceling a music festival performance. Last week, Scott lost a nearly $400,000 lawsuit after being sued for pulling out of a party during Super Bowl weekend. In 2017, La Flame was hit with a lawsuit brought on by a fan who was paralyzed after sustaining injuries during one of his concerts.
