If Rae Sremmurd Have It Their Way We’re Getting A Childish Gambino Collab Album

Fans are still waiting on the long-delayed Childish Gambino and Chance the Rapper mixtape, and now Rae Sremmurd are throwing their hat into the collaboration ring. In an interview with Billboard, the rap group described the potential sound of a Sremmurd and Donald Glover project.

“I got a laptop with about 1,000 bangers,” said Swae Lee. “I know Childish Gambino got about 2,000 or 3,000, who knows? We’re gonna come together and make a whole project like, “Redbone” and “Black Beatles.”

This week, Glover announced he is embarking on a North American tour with Rae Sremmurd starting in September. Later in the Billboard interview, Slim Jxmmi reveals how the two brothers connected with the Atlanta rapper.

“Childish Gambino is a cool guy, we linked overseas in a studio,” said Jxmmi. “I DJ’d one of his house parties one time. He’s just a cool guy and we got the same type of vibe, so you can expect good music to come out of this. It’s natural. We don’t gotta act, we can just be ourselves. He’s himself everywhere he goes, and we’re gonna be ourselves everywhere we go — so it’s just gonna be like two different shows, we from two different places.”

At this point it looks like Glover might have to put off retirement to fit in all of these projects.

Taylor Swift And Rihanna Were Adorable Newbies At The 2008 Grammys

On the morning of December 6, 2007, Swift was up bright and early to announce the 2008 Grammy nominations live. To her pleasant surprise, she got one nomination herself, in the coveted (and all-female!) Best New Artist category, alongside Amy Winehouse, Feist, Paramore, and Ledisi. Cue one of the O.G. iterations of her now-signature “surprise face.” In fact, in the video below, Swift reacts to her Grammy nomination by hugging Dave Grohl and later exclaiming, “I can’t believe I’m nominated for a Grammy. I can’t believe that happened!”

It was a huge moment for the then-17-year-old singer-songwriter, who had taken the country world by storm with the release of her self-titled debut album and singles like “Our Song” and “Teardrops on My Guitar.” Though she had yet to become the crossover pop idol she is today, she was already showing us the first signs of her blinding star power.

Two months later, Swift made her debut at the Grammys wearing the early ‘00s prom dress of your dreams: a purple gown with a strapless corset top. Remember: This was peak Old Taylor, when she was smitten with glittery, icy makeup and barrel curls. On the red carpet that year, Swift gushed about her custom-made dress and, ironically enough, named Kanye West as the person she was most excited to see that night (lol).

Swift lost the Best New Artist prize to that night’s big winner, Winehouse, but her Grammy legacy was only just beginning. Since then, she’s racked up 31 nominations and taken home 10 awards. This year, she’s nominated in the Best Country Song category for “Better Man,” the song she wrote for Little Big Town, as well as Best Song Written for Visual Media for her Fifty Shades Darker collab with Zayn, “I Don’t Wanna Live Forever.” Not a bad reputation to have.

‘We’re Gonna Be Lords’ Documentary featuring Action Bronson, Flatbush ZOMBiES, The Underachievers & Le1f

We’re Gonna Be Lords is a short documentary that explores the minds of four New York artists and hip-hop crews: Action Bronson, Flatbush ZOMBiES, The Underachievers and Le1f, who tell their own tales of how they became involved in the music scene. Directed by Robert Lopuski, who also directed Jay Z and Kanye West’s Watch the Throne documentary in 2012, We’re Gonna Be Lords pieces together these artists’ narratives and also sheds some light on the newer hip-hop generation of New York that thrives today. While hailing from different neighborhoods, these featured artists have New York running through their veins. While people may be products of their environment, each of these talents come from a variety of backgrounds, whether it be Action Bronson’s foundations in gourmet cooking or Meech’s aspirations of becoming a philosopher.

Alongside intimate interviews with the artists, scripted scenes in the forms of vignettes are interlaced throughout and help illustrate the ethereal and almost spiritual tone of the documentary’s narrative. Reaching for musical success in hip-hop is often viewed as being driven by street dreams of money and influential power; ”there’s this almost transcendent quality of being nobody in pursuit of something great — the idea of becoming a Lord… It felt fragile but charged, raw, dream-like, ritualistic,” says Lopuski. And yet, these artists are true examples of the simple pursuit of creative expression. Watch We’re Gonna Be Lords above.
