It looks like Swae Lee, the younger half of Rae Sremmurd, has his own project in the works. “[It’s] a retarded project called Swaecation,” he revealed in a new Complex wide feature interview. “I have eight songs right now that i feel like are candidates for the project, but I gotta make sure they’re all up to par.”
On top of that, Lee said that Katy Perry actually recorded something he wrote for her. “I wrote this track and she laid it and it’s pretty dope. It sounded pretty dope. She got a lot of style.”
As the interview pointed out, Slim Jxmmi cautioned the idea of solo projects from the duo, and pointed out that the industry is pushing for it to happen, despite their intentions to stay together. “The whole industry going to do shit to separate us,” he admitted before clarifying, “We got separate tracks, because we can both rap.” Unfortunately, we might not get the chance to hear what Jxmmi has been working on “because I don’t want to satisfy the world like that.”
Explaining his comments further, Lee pointed out that individual projects would never mean the end of their group together. “When we say solo projects, we say chances for the fans to get to see us individually. But we’re still Sremmed out. We might put them on the same disc—who knows? We definitely got different projects that we’re working on and tweaking.”
It’s pretty clear the brothers have no plans to stop being Rae Sremmurd anytime soon. Today, their much anticipated new album, SremmLife 2, arrived and it’s stacked with impressive features from the likes of Gucci Mane, Kodak Black, Juicy J, and SremmLife Crew artists Bobo Swae, Riff 3x, and Impxct. Still, we wouldn’t mind hearing what each of them bring to the table as individuals on their own projects. Check out their latest album here and catch them on the road with Lil Yachty this fall.
