  1. The palpably effervescent joy of Rae Sremmurd feels untainted by the ills of reality and stands against a backdrop of contemporaries like Shmurda and Chief Keef who use their as a way of combating the grim reality of inner city rot.

    Coming in at only 11 songs, SremmLife is a lively surge of hedonism and recklessness.

    SremmLife definitely lives up to the hype--yes, it's more focused towards the youth market, but it shouldn't preclude anyone reading this who enjoys the youthful energy of debut artists going nuts once they get a big chance.

    Though a few songs stretch out an interesting idea too far—for instance, the post-Nae-Nae scrum "My X"--SremmLife is a showcase of an electric new talent paired with all the trappings of a bigtime major label debut.

    Sremmlife is as good as it is because of how sonically pleasing it is.

    It’s an album that gives as much as it gains, both in trap-flow intensity and emotional catharsis.

    Rae Sremmurd are at their best when they're doing what they want, rather than eschewing their oddities in favor of radio-friendly hooks ("Safe Sex") or buzzword phrasing.

    Sremm Life is the future **** I'm 32 from tha south and grew up on No Limit, Scarface, and Cash Money. Outkast, UGK, and 8ball and MJG. As ISremm Life is the future **** I'm 32 from tha south and grew up on No Limit, Scarface, and Cash Money. Outkast, UGK, and 8ball and MJG. As I got older, I only listen to true club bangers or just true banger anthem type songs on a mixtape from various artists. I always wonder why artist's entire album wasn't as banging as the songs on the radio. I told myself, I wished the entire album was good. Not just 3 or 4 songs. Albums like 50 cent Get Rich or.... And Outkast All of 'em. We'll finally I get another complete banger album from Rae Sremmurd where every beat is tight on some Dre-ish type producing, one of the best Albums in the past 15 years! One of the top 5! And here you come with these lies!
    No Type is a really good song but No Flex Zone like No Type is also a great banger and both really just warm you up for some much better music on their album. If you don't feel YNO, Throw Some More, Come With Me and Safe Sex and Pay Checks, then you shouldn't be a DJ. Hip Hop is dead and Sremmurd Living is going to help feed the game for a little longer. Lit lit lit, lit like bic, and unlock the swag give you 2 intros for the price of one! My X and This Could Be Us made my wife listen to rap again! I would let my teen agers years from now listen to them. "See, you don't have to sell drugs and rap about stuff that would set all people back for some time frame or another kids."
    If you don't like it, call "Mime" Will Made It and make a better one. Because, could you shouldn't make a sound about anything or Sremm-LeeJimmy again. Silence...cuz music is now Up Like Trump (view 302 on YouTube and 25 more later).
    Oh yeah, it's not Shrieking in this album, it's call swag which is the same difference.

The overall production of the album is great and the songs are extremely fun and catchy without being repetitive. I love the rapping dynamic between Slim Jxmmi and Swae Lee. The songs aren't deep or all that meaningful but it's still a very great debut album.

The production is satisfying,Inside of this very homogeneous rap subgenre SremmLife proves it's competence and even varies in tempo/style. The production is satisfying, the lyrics are entertaining at times, but I wouldn't consider this masterpiece or truly innovative. I personally did not like the main vocalist/rapper's voice. The aggressive nature sounds overdone with the particular vocalist- though he is talented at delivering the lyrics within his control.

    If you like trap, this is a very solid album.

This whole album is just one contradiction after the other, it's actually amazing to me how this album got such high critic reviews, considering how completely useless and horrible this whole album is. I really hope Rae Sremmurd just stops making music now and run away with all the money they've gotten from nasty twerking white girls. Expand
