Is Rae Sremmurd better than Outkast? Some fans on Twitter seem to think so.
On Friday (Jan. 21), brothers Slim Jxmmi and Swae Lee responded to a tweet that proclaimed the Mississippi duo was better than the Atlanta trailblazers Andre 3000 and Big Boi.
“Rae sremmurd are a better duo then OutKast,” a fan wrote.
“Y’all gotta chill,” Rae Sremmurd replied, followed by a laughing crying emoji. Many Twitter users applauded the SremmLife rappers for their humility in the replies.
“Now that is some next level awareness,” one tweeter wrote.
“I’m glad you have respect to address this comment. You’re an amazing duo but the other duo is a different animal, you guys are different in your own ways. I have followed your music since I heard it 2015. humble and talented af,” another tweeter replied.
Swae Lee took to his Instagram Stories where he said that he was “flattered” by the comparison.
“I see people on Twitter comparing us to OutKast and shit, like, we ain’t even really showed y’all our full capabilities yet. We ain’t even showed y’all everything we can do yet,” he said. “SremmLife 4 that’s gon’ be like final form Rae Sremmurd, so you can really understand the duo; really understand Slim Jxmmi, really understand who Swae Lee is. An all this is on a timeline this year.”
“Rae Sremmurd SremmLife, we bring different energy. But them goats right there. We goats too. We all goats.”
“Shout-out to OutKast man, they’re some originals in the game so you can never compare us [with them],” Jxmmi said. “But I think that Rae Sremmurd are doing our own thing, in our own way, in our era of time and music. But OutKast is a great group and we really like them, you know what I’m saying?”
“I think the game is trying to turn us to some OutKast [comparisons], and there’s a lot of hate and hating on us going on because we’re doing our own thing and we’re in our own lane. They tried to turn Rae Sremmurd into OutKast and count us out, so we had to come out [with SR3MM] and remind them that, ‘Look, we’re here to stay,” Lee added.
