Rae Sremmurd's New Album, SremmLife 2, Is Out Today On Ear Drummer Records / Interscope Records

Rae Sremmurd's New Album, SremmLife 2, Is Out Today On Ear Drummer Records / Interscope Records

SANTA MONICA, Calif., Aug. 12, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- SremmLife 2 -- the eagerly awaited second album from Mississippi hip-hop duo Rae Sremmurd -- is out today on Ear Drummer Records / Interscope Records.

Early reviews have praised SremmLife 2's darker tone with The New York Times noting that "the quieter innovation on this album is how, thanks to the more-meditative production, SremmLife 2 is at times a commentary on and an updating of decades of Southern club rap." Spin remarked: "If Rae Sremmurd's debut approximated a beatific red cups/red bottoms swag party, this follow-up is closer to a smoked-out, hot-boxed ride." The Los Angeles Times commented that "the duo turns surprisingly thoughtful, even introspective, in songs like the sensual 'Now That I Know' and 'Came a Long Way,' which recounts the brothers' journey out of poverty as a melancholy piano figure loops into infinity behind them." It also calls out Mike WILL Made-It and his stable of producers, "who provide Rae Sremmurd with infectious beats set at precisely the right shoulder-rocking tempo."

To support SremmLife 2, Rae Sremmurd will hit the road for their first-ever headlining tour, which kicks off on October 1(st) in New Orleans and crisscrosses North America before concluding in Vancouver on November 7(th). Atlanta rapper Lil Yachty will join the tour as direct support. In addition to the 2016 XXL Freshmen class member, the tour will also feature opening sets from Eearz and SremmLife Crew artists BoBo Swae and Impxct. Tickets go on sale to the general public today at

SremmLife 2 is the follow-up to brothers Swae Lee and Slim Jxmmi's platinum-selling album SremmLife, which debuted atop Billboard's R&B/Hip Hop Albums and Rap albums chart, while cracking the Top 5 on the Top 200 Albums chart its first week. SremmLife scored the duo five platinum-selling singles, including the Mike WiLL Made-It-produced "No Flex Zone," and "No Type," which is co-produced by Swae Lee. The album was executive produced by Mike WiLL Made-It (Rihanna, Beyoncé, 2 Chainz,) who is also a producer on SremmLife 2.
