Uh-oh, smells like trouble in paradise. The duo Rae Sremmurd may be splitting up for good. Slim Jxmmi appears to have woke up in a mood today because the rapper hopped on Twitter to declare his that the "No Type" duo was no more. In since-deleted tweets, the rapper exclaimed that he's going to just go forth by himself, without group partner and brother Swae Lee.
"I'm not Rae Sremmurd I'm Slim Jxmmi and ima sink or swim by myself," he first tweeted out. Later, the Mississippi native posted, "Not Sremmlife."
Things certainly aren't looking good as Slix went on to write, "Y'all still got ya mans Swae yall be straight." In addition, he added an Instagram post saying, "RIP Slim Jxm."

Just last year, rumors circulated that the dynamic duo may be splitting up.
"That's a myth," Swae Lee said last year. "We young. We creative. We livin' our lives. Sometimes people may be too tuned in and they misconstrue things. Yeah, so that was just a myth. We've got many, many, many more projects coming. Many more songs coming, many more features coming. It's just the beginning."
In March, the brothers began dropping solo singles starting off with “Hurts to Look” and “Brxnks Truck.” True to form, Swae Lee and Slim Jxmmi teamed up again to feature one another on their individual spearheaded projects, “Guatemala” and “Chanel,” and have teamed up for the songs “Close” and “Powerglide.”
Since exploding onto the music scene with their smash hit, “No Type,” the brother duo has made a constant stream of hits. Along the way, they’ve lined up an impressive list of connections looking to collaborate. SR3MM features a multitude of A-list names including Future, Travis Scott, Young Thug, The Weeknd, Zoe Kravitz, and Pharrell.
Critics have frequently commented that Swae Lee is the main draw of the popular group. During an interview with The Breakfast Club, Charlamagne the god asked Slim Jxmmi his thoughts on the perception of the groups dynamic.
“We been in this group for over 10 years, bro. I've been hearing the same thing for many years," he said. "At first it kind of affected me but once you get past that little part... I'm not to go on Twitter on some "I'm about to kill myself," hell nah."
Slim Jxmmi then responded to the haters in a beautiful way: "At the end of the day, f**k you, sremm life, aye, srkt srkt, and then I'm gone."
Here's to hoping the two brothers can work out their differences this time around.
