Rae Sremmurd – By Chance (Prod. by Mike WiLL Made-It)

Rae Sremmurd delivers a new heater in the form of “By Chance,” produced by Mike WiLL Made-It. After a huge 2015, in which the brothers from Mississippi dropped their debut album SremmLife (number 2 on our annual Top 25 list), Rae Sremmurd sounds hungry to continue its hot streak.

Top 25 Hip-Hop/R&B Projects of 2015

Happy Holidays from UPC. One year ago, we predicted 2015 would be a major year for the music world. But I don’t think any of us expected the sheer amount of quality albums and mixtapes that came to fruition. Drake and Kanye West failed to deliver their studio albums, but even that didn’t matter. Future...

Champaign, IL got a taste of Sremm Life last week. Rae Sremmurd performed an hour-long set at Foellinger Auditorium on Monday, Oct. 26 in front of a raucous crowd of students.

Rae Sremmurd Live in Champaign, IL on 10/26

Young Thug recently canceled his show at Canopy Club, so this announcement should brighten some moods: On October 26th, Rae Sremmurd will perform at Foellinger Auditorium on the University of Illinois campus. Yep, that’s right — the ‘Lit Like Bic’ crew is making its way to Champaign, IL for a 7:30 p.m. concert. Doors will open at 6:30...

Ty Dolla $ign – Blasé ft. Future & Rae Sremmurd

Ty Dolla $ign has a new banger in the form of “Blasé” featuring fellow hit-makers Future and Rae Sremmurd. With a classic hook, high-energy beat and cool lyrics, this song is a must-have on any turn-up playlist. As of late, these guys cannot miss and sleeping on this hit would be a sin. Look out for Ty’s new...

Rae Sremmurd – SremmLife (Album)

STOP THE FUCKIN PRESSES. Just as the year is wrapping up, and everybody is prepping their end of the year lists (including us here at UPC), the rap super-duo from Mississippi decides to drop a bomb on us all. Rae Sremmurd‘s much anticipated debut album SremmLife is now available for stream on iTunes Radio, and is...

Rae Sremmurd – Throw Some Mo ft. Nicki Minaj & Young Thug

Do not let their unpronounceable name blind you from the fact that this group is here to stay. Rae Sremmurd (which is actually just Ear Drummers, Mike WiLL’s label, spelled backwards) have catapulted themselves into one of the most relevant acts in hip-hop today. From “No Flex Zone” to “No Type” and Baauer‘s EDM anthem “One...

Rae Sremmurd – No Type

Mike WiLL Made-It‘s protege Rae Sremmurd follow up their summer-smash “No Flex Zone” today with the release of “No Type.” I’ve been eagerly anticipating this drop ever since hearing them perform it at Trillectro last weekend. Although the vibe of the song is completely different than that of “No Flex Zone,” it still feats quite...
