The spat between Ebro and Rae Sremmurd continues after Swae Lee is named a co-writer on Beyoncé's new single, "Formation."
Today's biggest event was the unveiling of Beyoncé's new single and accompanying video, "Formation." Shortly after its release, it was revealed that the song was produced by Mike Will Made-It as well as Ear Drummers producer Apluss and that it was co-written by Swae Lee of Rae Sremmurd. Seeing Mike and Rae Sremmurd's name back in the headlines prompted a response from a known detractor of the group, HOT 97's Ebro Darden, who seemed to undermine Lee's "co-writing" achievements.
At the end of last year, Ebro took issue with Complex for ranking Rae Sremmurd's debut album, SremmLife, as the third best album of 2015. Ebro's concern with the high ranking did not set well with Rae Sremmurd or Mike Will Made-It, the executive producer of SremmLife and the man who discovered the Mississippi duo. Brothers Swae Lee and Slim Jxmmi took many a shot at the radio host during their 20-minute freestyle session with Tim Westwood.
After Ebro suggested he wasn't impressed with Swae Lee's co-writing credit on "Formation," Slim Jxmmi, who wasn't involved in the making of the single, called him out on Twitter. After Ebro and Jxmmi sent a few jabs each other's way, Mike Will chimed in, telling Ebro, "You making ur self look lame as hell." See the entire exchange, as well as Ebro's persistent efforts to make jokes using the "co" prefix, below.
