Following on from his game-changing mixtape Ransom back in 2014, super producer Mike WiLL Made-It has once again teamed up with breakout hip-hop duo Rae Sremmurd for a brand new track. Titled By Chance, the duo shared the clip on Twitter along with some mysterious clues about both parties’ next moves.
Although the cover art suggests that the song is taken from Mike WiLL’s next mixtape Ransom 2, the tweet from Rae Sremmurd also hints at an inclusion on their forthcoming album SremmLife 2. Not-so-creative names aside, By Chance features a huge and punishing, yet sluggish, beat that is not surprising given Mike WiLL’s penchant for hard trap styles. Swae Lee and Slim Jimmy actually sound more chilled than their usual boisterous verses, but are nevertheless at their best – something we’ve come to expect from the brothers.
Both releases (Ransom 2 and SremmLife 2) are becoming very highly anticipated indeed in the hip-hop community and beyond, with both acts having absolutely banner years last year. Mike WiLL continues to collect a “who’s who” list of collaborative partners, whilst the No Flex Zone rappers quickly became one of the year’s most favourite discoveries. No strangers to working with each other either, it just makes sense that this track is as good as it is. Let’s just hope they don’t keep up waiting too long for any more new stuff!
