“SremmLife2” Feels SremmDead


I’ll go ahead and preface this by saying I’m into about 50% of rap/hip-hop music that’s out there right now. I either play it full blast with all of my friends in the car, attempting to rap every word, or it just sounds like slurred words and honestly just hurts to listen to.


That being said, I was a pretty big fan of Rae Sremmurd’s first album, “SremmLife,” released in 2015. It was super fun and even made my daily commute to school feel like every party you’d hate to miss. But Rae Sremmurd’s newest release, “SremmLife2,” just really isn’t the same experience. The music on the album is overpowering and, frankly, a little too slow to make me wanna get up and dance.


Sure, there are a few highlights — “Black Beatles”, “Look Alive” and “Just Like Us,” being my personal favorites, as they continue the club anthem-esque tunes of the former release, but even those aren’t comparable to hits on the old album. Overall, it’s worth a listen, but if you’ve been a fan of Rae Sremmurd for a while and are looking to continue the party from 2015, this album probably isn’t for you.
