One Half of Rae Sremmurd Is Going Solo

The news comes just hours after their latest group project dropped.

Published August 12, 2016

Rae Sremmurd today (August 12) dropped their highly anticipated Sremmlife 2 album and have already been celebrating all sorts of high praise as they make their press runs and fans absorb their new music.

Just hours after the release though, one member has come forward to share he has a solo project in the works, raising all sorts of questions about the future of the group. 

In a new interview, younger member Swae Lee shared that he has a solo project in the works that he is reassuring fans does not mean Rae Sremmurd is going to be breaking up or anything along those lines.

It’s a "project called Swaecation,” he says during the interview. “I have eight songs right now that I feel like are candidates for the project, but I gotta make sure they’re all up to par.”

The singer also shared that Katy Perry recorded a track that he wrote, simply saying that it’s “pretty dope” before going on to insist again that the future of Rae Sremmurd is looking bright.

“When we say solo projects, we say chances for the fans to get to see us individually,” Swae Lee adds. “But we’re still Sremmed out. We might put them on the same disc — who knows? We definitely got different projects that we’re working on and tweaking.”

His partner in crime, Slim Jxmmi, also agreed with what Lee shared, adding, “The whole industry going to do s**t to separate us.”

Jxmmi then went on to make sure what he is currently working on remains mysterious, because what’s the fun in giving it all away right out the gate following their sophomore album’s fresh release.
