In a candid new cover story for The FADER, Rae Sremmurd have completely shut down allegations from HOT 97′s Ebro Darden that the duo don’t write their own material. In response, Swae Lee shot back:
“It’s such a false statement. Where’d it come from? You pulled it out your ass. If you want to know who wrote my shit, go to my album credits.”
Ebro has been questioning the legitimacy the brothers’ work for a while now, also recently taking issue with Swae’s co-write credit on Beyoncé’s “Formation.” Although he doesn’t address that particular event, Swae does go into detail about his involvement with Lemonade to Fader:
“When I made that Beyoncé hook I was thinking nothing about it. A couple months later, Mike [WiLL Made-It] tells me that Beyoncé wants it. I couldn’t imagine! I come in the studio and she’s just like, a goddess or something. Just sitting there. This good aura. They played it for me and I’m like, it’s a new Beyoncé. She put her own twist on it. She has so much sauce on that song, it blew me away…She freaked it.”
Rae Sremmurd also took the time to break down exactly who and what their music is for:
“It’s a mutual feeling; we all wanna hear this shit. We all wanna feel like this at a party. We all wanna hear these words. We always wanted to do this.”
