"Better run for cover!/Might run for governor!" Rae Sremmurd inform us on their debut. By the time the words leave your speakers, you're ready to make a campaign contribution. This brother duo from Elvis Presley's hometown of Tupelo, Mississippi, radiate an inescapable exuberance, shouting with the zeal of freshly minted stars as they build off the joyous bounce of last year's hits "No Flex Zone" and "No Type." Producer Mike Will Made It's phantasmagoric funk is a perfect backdrop for rhymes about safe sex and paychecks, emptying out the ATM, and the raw thrill of making it big: "Tokyo drift through the hills/Used to have to walk, no wheels." This feels more like flying.
