IMG_3766

Trill Sammy is the definition of present-day rap sensation. At 19 the Houston rapper is making a name for himself thru, you guessed it, social media. One of his boys Tweeted out a freestyle video that he didn’t even like, and it got 16K retweets overnight. Sammy has grown a relatively large fan base this way, and it continues to expand with each release.

Sammy is close to his mom, even though she first doubted his rap career. When he told her he was starting to get his name out there she thought he was joking.

Trill Sammy linked up with Dice Soho for one of his most recent releases, “No Reason”. In an interview with Fader, Sammy and Dice Soho describe the track as being about their favorite things, “partying, girls, blowing money, and going fast in foregin cars”. Peep the collab below:

Slim Jimmy

(of Rae Sremmurd) is a big fan of Trill Sammy. Some have even described Trill Sammy and Dice Soho as being similar to Rae Sremmurd. Even though the two have collaborated on several tracks, Trill Sammy and Dice Soho view themselves as solo artists.

JMBLYA Presents: Rae Sremmurd

The music industry has seen its fair share of powerhouse duo’s, but Rae Sremmurd is one of the hottest additions to that category. If you’ve been to the club, the bar, or even turned on your local Top 40 or hip-hop radio stations in the past year, you’ve heard these guys.

Slim Jimmy and Swae Lee are brothers from Tupelo, Mississippi — the home of other artists like Big Krit, Diplo, and the late, great Elvis. Faced with hardship early in life, they found solace and passion to provide for themselves by making music. They were constantly moving city to city, working jobs at places like McDonalds or mattress factories. They eventually decided to start throwing parties in abandoned houses where they would perform and rage with their friends, cultivating the early stages of their wave “Sremmlife.” They originally started off as Dem Outta S8 Boyz, and landed a spot on BET’s 106 & Park’s segment “Wild Out Wednesdays,” which was followed by meetings with major labels, but they did not land any deals. They kept making music while performing in local clubs. In 2013, they received a phone call from P-Nasty asking them to fly out to Atlanta to work and become part of Mike Will Made It’s infamous collective, The Ear Drummers. They took on the name Rae Sremmurd, an anagram of the collective.

In 2014, they made their first appearance on Mike Will Made It’s compilation #MikeWillBeenTrill, and with their distinctive sound and voices got people talking. Their first single “No Flex Zone” now has over 100 million views on Youtube, and they have over 300 million with their hit “No Type.” This was only the beginning. They soon sold over 120,000 copies of their debut album Sremmlife with features from Nicki Minaj, Young Thug, Jace of 2-9, and Big Sean with the album holding a number one spot on the hip-hop Billboard chart for over eight weeks. Since then, they’ve had even more chart-topping bangers such as “This Could Be Us,” “Up Like Trump,” and “Throw Sum Mo.” The duo is currently wrapping their project Sremmlife 2, that will hopefully be released before the end of 2016.
