Up Like Trump

Album: SremmLife (2015)
  • This song finds the Rae Sremmurd duo paying tribute to American business magnate Donald Trump. Swae Lee told Complex: "I think Donald Trump is cool. I him and I'm like, "That's a cool motherf---er." He's rich as f--k."
  • Donald Trump become a national celebrity through hosting the NBC reality show The Apprentice. Mac Miller's first hit single "Donald Trump" also pays tribute to the infamous entrepreneur.
  • Set in Donald Trump's hometown of New York City, the video finds the rap duo living it up at a penthouse party. The pair are also seen in the middle of Times Square and taking over a double-decker bus. Swae Lee recalled: "When we go to the top of the bus we look down and Donald Trump is on there. Nobody knows it, but when we first got on the bus after the shoot we just look at the bus and Donald Trump is there. Not on the bus, just a picture of him. It didn't get in the video, but it's a fun fact I guess."
