Truthfully, Swae Lee and Slim Jxmmi both deserve Nobel Peace Prizes for their continued dedication to soundtracking life's most joyous moments. These are the facts and we're voting yes. Lee, for one, agrees.
In a new interview with GQ, Rae Sremmurd was asked about collaborating with recent Pulitzer honoree Kendrick Lamar. "It lets me know that they owe me a fucking Grammy," Lee said. "I need a Nobel Peace Prize for 'Black Beatles,' making the world freeze, making all the violence freeze, making everything freeze for a moment in time."
Elsewhere, Jxmmi elaborated on the inspiration behind his "Bedtime Stories" line about love being his "worst nightmare" imaginable. Speaking on the universality of the subject matter, Jxmmi said the nightmarish aspect kicks in once you realize you're most definitely the one doing the falling. "So that's my worst nightmare, because you don't know what's gonna happen," he said. "You let someone in, that's hard to do." Check the full interview here.
The Sremmurd duo is still riding deservedly high on the peace-causing vibes of their new triple-disc album SR3MM, which again makes excellent use of some Mike Will Made It soundscapes. For a proper celebration, Lee and Jxmmi have lined up two massive back-to-back tours. The first, Wiz Khalifa's Dazed & Blazed Tour, kicks off June 23 in Utah and will require you to be dazed and/or blazed to really find your muse. In September, Sremmurd hits the road with Childish Gambino, who's arguably having his best year yet.
