"They’re Kriss Kross, that’s what they are." Ebro of Hot 97's Ebro In The Morning said of "No Type" and "No Flex Zone" upstarts Rae Sremmurd on-air last week when the Complex staff dropped by to discuss their 50 best album list, which includes the brothers' debut at number 3. "They didn't write that shit. Any of it," he said, insinuating that producer Mike WiLL-Made It — "you know that his name is Mike WiLL-Made It?" — penned most of the album.
Then, faster than you can say "Sremm," Mike WiLL-Made It jumped on Twitter to vouch for the duo (firing off a few shots at Ebro, too):
Bring something new to the game, streets gone respect it and gone fuck with it, it's simple... Sremm album is a gamechanger (period).

Then, halting the chatter, Rae Sremmurd stopped by Tim Westwood's spot on Capital XTRA! and went totally H.A.M.: Twenty minutes (!!!) off the top of their heads. Who doesn't write? Who's that?
Even if you aren't fond of firecracker rap attitudes Swae Lee and Slim Jimmy and the whole SremmLife philosophy, this is a feat just about anybody can appreciate. Watch the whole swaggy rap Iron Man below:
