  • Lyrics
  • Rae Sremmurd is a Mississippi-bred hip-hop duo comprised of Swae Lee and Slim Jimmy. This is the opening track of their debut album, SremmLife, which is basically a freestyle. Swae Lee told Complex magazine: "Everything just be fun that we do. Everything just be fire. Having fun is lit. Lit like Bic, everything flames. It's really a freestyle. I just went in there one take. Jimmy just went in there one take."
  • Local producer Backpack supplied the beat. Swae Lee said: "I like the bass on this song. When [our] engineer played [the beat] I was like, 'What the f--k?' We had just did some songs, and he was like, 'I got some beats.' So we heard them with open ears, and they sounded good, and we said, 'Load it up.'"
  • The montage clip, filmed over the course of a few months, is a doc-style look at Slim Jimmy and Swae Lee's predilection for living it up. Justin Beiber, Mike WiLL Made It, 2 Chainz, Miley Cyrus and Jimmy Fallon are just some of the famous people who show up in the video.
