Personal Enjoyment and Rating: 6/10
Sremmlife 2 is Rae Sremmurd’s sophomore album and was released on August 12th 2016 under Eardruma Records/Interscope Records.
Overall this album had its ups and downs for me, and I found it to be pretty average in respects to what I personally enjoy in music. However, if you enjoy turn up music or trap music, I think you’d be able to find quite a bit of this album enjoyable.
One of the biggest hit or miss things about this album for me is the hooks. Often times I found a lot of the verses to be pretty forgettable unless they’re from songs that were non stop played on the radio when they came out, which leaves the hooks to be the most memorable aspects of a lot the songs for me, for better or for worse. Some of them are very enjoyable and catchy like on Black Beatles, but others made me want to bash my head in like on Do Yoga. A lot of the songs contain more hooks/more time spent on the hooks then there is on the verses. I understand that this is totally a style of music and it lends itself towards more energetic and party music which has its time and place, but this isn’t the type of music of personally listen to for enjoyment a lot of the time.
The production is another thing that made certain songs stand out since the lyrics are pretty basic and/or forgettable. While repetitive at times, I was surprised how many cuts there were on here that were slowed down or not pure trap inspired pieces. This was something I thought I’d enjoy more, but I think it might’ve been better to stick to more trap songs on here since rapping about your lavish lifestyle over a different beat just doesn’t do it for me. Maybe if there was more of a change in topic over a different beat if enjoy it more.
All in all this one just isn’t quite for me and doesn’t fit the purpose of music I like to listen to, but I can see how people would like this record or could find a lot more to enjoy on it than I did. I think I’d like this music a lot better live, but listening alone it doesn’t quite hit for me.
As always, let me know your thoughts in the comments!
Hello! National producers! I'm TOP Media's Lee Jinhyuk.
Don't know what words should I say first... Firstly I want to say thank you so much to our national producers who gave me this many loves and interest. Like what I said on broadcast. I was really happy. It was like a precious sweet (welcome) rain in a closed life. I've lived while making promise to myself that everyday is the last stage, to me it became a very great hope thanks to national producers who came to me. And I wanted to be proved. I loved stage more than anyone and I am proud that there's no such thing as a lie. That time during on site, when national producers said "You are proved!' I almost bursted into tears. It is saying that the stages I did were not worthless. I didn't think that I could receive so much love like this after coming out at PDX and, it's such a pity but when I couldn't be together with X1, many people cried for me and and supported me, so I thought that I shouldn't give up again. I think I didn't lose anything at PDX here. Rather than that, I think that I carried more experiences, skills, and responsibilities. I'll be Jinhyuk who will put effort to live up to your expectations. I will be more fun in the future! I'll put effort to be Lee Jinhyuk that anyone will like and receive recognition, gives new images, colourful stages.
Thank you, our Vdan
I love you, national producers!
LIFE’S A TRIP
Em 2004, quando perguntado ao Eduardo qual foi o maior prêmio do Facção Central, ele respondeu que foi quando o grupo foi convidado para cantar na penitenciária do Estado. Era no dia das mães e as mães dos detentos estavam todas lá, e quando o grupo começou a cantar "Desculpa Mãe", as mães começaram a chorar junto com seus filhos.
