One half of the group Rae Sremmurd says he is leaving the group. Slim Jxmmi went on Twitter and made some statements that indicate the is no longer part of the duo. “I’m not Rae Sremmurd I’m slim jxmmi and ima sink or swim by myself,” he said. He also stated that he is “not Sremmlife.” It was another tweet that had me thinking that jealousy might be a factor in his decision. “Y’all still got ya mans swae y’all a be skraight,” he said. It has been no secret that his brother Swae Lee has been the more successful out the two. Swae has been nominated for a Grammy for his writing contributions to Beyonce’s ‘Formation’ song. In addition to that he was the hook for French Montana’s hit song ‘Unforgettable’ and appeared on Kendrick Lamar’s Black Panther album.
In an interview with Complex last year, Slim Jxmmi said “If people see me out and I have a stank face on, they think I’m mad because of that, but I’m mad at them because they want me to be mad. I’m always singing ‘Unforgettable’ when it come on in the club, but people look at me like, ‘Is it OK if I dance to this?’ He went on to say “It’s no competition. We’re brothers. At the end of the day, we’re getting a bag.”
The fact that not only that Rae Sremmurd has been successful, but are also blood brothers should be enough to keep Slim Jxmmi happy. However, it looks like being the less popular member of the group doesn’t sit well with him. Do you think he is jealous of his brother? Leave your comments blow.
