Thankfully, the dire situation would improve moments later, when Slim Jxmmi posted a “Rip slimJxm” in letter form, this time on Instagram. Next to the posting, Slim Jxmmi captioned this message: “2nd project Dropping 2k19.” So in summary, Slim Jxmmi inadvertently puts fans in cardiac arrest only to resuscitate them with pillars of joy. With an impending PR crisis on their hands, Swae Lee was forced to write a statement meant to bolster Slim Jxmmi’s damage control efforts.
It stands to reason that Jxmmi may have been saving his announcement for a rainy day, but in sensing the tumult he had inadvertently created by misleading his fans, the Rae Sremmurd rapper had little choice but to strike early. Both messages come to us on the heels of a Rae Sremmurd performance last night at FOMO Festival in Sydney, Australia.
