Rae Sremmurd have released handfuls of notable hit records in the past few months.
The album features the hit singles “No Flex Zone” (which peaked at No. 8 on Hot Rap Songs) and the No. 2 smash “No Type.” The act’s latest Rap hit, “Throw Sum Mo,” featuring Nicki Minaj & Young Thug, debuts at No. 19 on the chart dated Jan. 17. (Billboard)
The rap duo recently talked about their music influences.
Although the brothers Sremmurd have equally broad taste – they claim that their current favorites are Future, Juicy J and “old Bon Jovi” – they attribute their irresistible hooks to a lifetime of partying. “We grew up in the club, so we know what’s going to make the club move,” says Jimmy.
