Travis Scott and Quavo did it; Young Thug and Future did it; Offset and 21 Savage did it, and now Rae Sremmurd and Childish Gambino are about to do it, too. Collaboration in the rap game is a thriving enterprise and the brotherly duo have made it clear to Vibe that it has music with Gambino that is forthcoming.
“Childish is just an amazing guy, super cool guy. He shows love to the whole rap industry, and he’s an icon. We’re going to do a whole project with him. It ain’t going to even take that long. We might do 2 or 3”, Slim Jxmmi said.
This tallies with a statement he gave to Billboard yesterday that Swae Lee and him have “linked overseas in a studio” with Donald Glover and that he has DJed at one of the latter’s house parties.
It’ll be interesting to hear how Rae Sremmurd’s kinetic party-rap intersects with Glover’s devastatingly confessional turn. Our bet is that it’ll sound fantastic.
Here’s Glover interacting with a “Redbone” fan on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.
