Despite releasing their debut album just last year, Rae Sremmurd aren’t wasting any time. The Atlanta rapping duo are back in action with their follow-up to last year’s smash hit SremmLife with the aptly titled SremmLife 2. And like its first edition, their sophomore effort carries the exact same amount of braggadocio and excitable swagger that made their debut such an endlessly playable ear worm.
SremmLife 2 contains all the singles that the duo has dropped throughout the year, including the hilariously raunchy seduction banger “Do Yoga.” And thought they keep the guest spots on the limited side, the rappers they have chosen to bring in are some big ones. Gucci Mane appears on a track called “Black Beatles,” Juicy J lights fire all over the trap house frenzy “Shake It Fast,” and the incredibly young up-and-comer Kodak Black hops on board “Real Chill.” Oh, and cultural relic from the 2000s, Lil Jon, is there too.
Returning from Rae Sremmurd’s first record is their frequent collaborator producer Mike WiLL Made-It, who works his magic over the vast majority of the album’s 14 tracks. But a notable guest production spot comes from DJ Mustard, who presided over the track Lil Jon featuring track “Set the Roof.”
And since there are still a few weeks of August left, many of these infectiously catchy tracks can still qualify as songs of the summer. We’ll put money down on the fact that you’ll be hearing “Start a Party” at each house party for the rest of the year.
