Log Out On Friday, Atlanta-based hip-hop duo Rae Sremmurd drops its long-delayed second album, SremmLife 2 (**½ out of four stars).
With a star-studded guest roster of Juicy J, Gucci Mane and Lil Jon, brothers Swae Lee, 21, and Slim Jxmmi, 22, continue to flaunt the bawdy, party-rap personas that endeared them to fans on breakout singles No Flex Zone and No Type.
But their latest also comes with an extra boost of music cred: Earlier this year, it was revealed that Swae co-wrote Beyoncé’s career-defining Lemonade single Formation, which was produced by Mike Will Made It (who serves as SremmLife 2’s executive producer).
2: An unofficial sequel to their strip-club anthem Throw Sum Mo with Nicki Minaj, Shake It Fast manages to be just as catchy while also upping the raunch factor.
Juicy J, coming off a solid guest turn on A$AP Mob’s Yamborghini High earlier this year, delivers an even more memorable verse here.
