Rae Sremmurd – Sremmlife 2

Rae Sremmurd’s SremmLife was a tremendous accomplishment not just because it had five singles reach the top 100, no small feat on its own, but because nearly every track on the record could have feasibly been released as a single. Among the songs that didn’t chart, there was the Big Sean-assisted nighttime celebration “YNO”, the lurching exuberance of “Unlock the Swag”, and the manic chiptune of “Safe Sex Pay Checks”, arguably the greatest anthem built around promoting contraceptive use of all time. Each of those was as catchy and memorable as “No Flex Zone” or “Throw Some Mo”, proving brothers Khalif “Swae Lee” Brown and Aaquil “Slim Jimmy” Brown were far from one-hit wonders. It may not have had the cohesive decadent vision of DS2 or the sociopolitical ambition of To Pimp a Butterfly, but track for track, no 2015 rap record had as high a ratio of churning out bangers as SremmLife.
