Travis Scott keeps “Swang”-in’.
Shortly after hitting the BET Hip-Hop Awards stage with Gucci Mane and Young Thug, La Flame’s “Swang (Remix)” gets leaked.
If it sounds familiar, that’s because the track features the same beat as Rae Sremmurd’s P-Nazty-produced song of the same name, which appeared on SremmLife 2.
Both cuts include similar melodies and some of the same lyrics. “Know some young ni**as like to swang,” Scott sings, much like Swae Lee does on his group’s version.
It’s unclear whether Scott’s “Swang” is a remix of Rae Sremmurd’s track or if La Flame simply had the same beat in his possession.
If it is unofficial, it would be following an unauthorized album released Friday (Oct. 14) titled Days Before Birds. “This is an unauthorized release that was not approved by Travis Scott,” Scott’s rep told FADER upon the LP’s release. “We are in the process of getting it taken down. We are requesting that all media sites remove the material.”
In any case, here’s La Flame’s version of “Swang.”
