Inglewood rapper Swae Lee rose to fame in 2015 with his double-platinum hit “No Flex Zone”, as one half of group Rae Sremmurd. With songs characterized by strong production and high energy flows, Rae Sremmurd enjoyed a comeback success last summer when their single “Powerglide” featuring Juicy J was released and proved to be a major success.
Though Swae and his brother (and other-half of the group) Slim Jxmmi have managed to triumph as a duo, the artist has been able to successfully establish himself as a solo artist, collaborating with several big-name artists such as Madonna, Future, Jhene Aiko, Wiz Khalifa, Post Malone, and – probably most notably – French Montanna, delivering his iconic hook for their song “Unforgettable”. As well as releasing his 9-track debut solo album Swaecation in May 2018.

Though no official release date has been set, a Tweet by the rapper made last night let fans know that he’s “96% done” with the album. Producers like Mike WiLL Made-It and Metro Boomin have been teased as part of the album’s efforts.
