2 Chainz and Rae Sremmurd‘s Swae Lee unite on the new trap song “Yacht Master,” featured on Murda Beatz’ Keep God First mixtape. The two rappers brag about wealth and sex over the Toronto producer’s chiming bells and skittering hi-hats.
Keep God First also features guest spots from Ty Dolla $ign, Quavo and Offset. 2 Chainz appears again on the flute-laced “Cappin’ N Shit,” with Skooly X. The mixtape originally included “She the Truth,” featuring Quavo and R&B singer Jeremih, but Murda recently removed the track, according to XXL.
In 2016, Rae Sremmurd expanded musically and commercially with their second LP, SremmLife 2. The album featured their first Billboard Hot 100 chart-topper, “Black Beatles,” which Rolling Stone ranked Number 10 on the 50 Best Songs of the Year list.
Actual Beatle Paul McCartney posted a video of himself doing the Mannequin Challenge to “Black Beatles,” which Swae Lee told Rolling Stone was mind-blowing.”When you’ve reached a real Beatle, it’s the ultimate co-sign,” Lee said. “It’s like dang, respect. We reached a real Beatle and it’s crazy. And the fact that he said ‘Love those black Beatles,’ it’s crazy.”
This year, 2 Chainz released his collaborative LP with Lil Wayne, ColleGrove, as well as a pair of mixtapes: Daniel Son; Necklace Don and Hibachi for Lunch.
