Swae Lee and Slim Jxmmi Hit the Streets of “Guatemala” in New Video
Swae Lee and Slim Jxmmi—collectively known as Rae Sremmurd—go international. Yesterday (June 21), the two unloaded a vibrant new video for "Guatemala," an "Unforgettable"-esque cut from Lee's Swaecation LP, which is a part of the Sremm brothers' Sr3mm triple album. For the video, the two made sure to visit the country itself.
In the vid, we see the Sremm brothers living their best lives as they soak up the Guatemalan sun. In some shots, we see the two sitting looking sitting atop a hill as they gaze at mountains. In others, they're posted up with some local baddies, or dancing with children in the streets.
While the video shoot itself looks like it was fun, Guatemala was hit with a wave of tragedy a month after the video was shot. On June 3, the country's erupting Volcano of Fire erupted, leaving dozens of Guatemalans dead and many more missing or injured. Lee and Jxmmi's new video includes a caption about the tragedy and their efforts to help those affected by it.
"The video for 'Guatemala' was shot a month before the country was hit by a devastating eruption," begins the caption for the visual. "Interscope Records, on behalf of itself, EarDruma Records and Rae Sremmurd, will be donating $10,000 to the American Red Cross to provide relief, assistance, and care to all of those affected by this tragic event."
Watch the video for "Guatemala" below. If you want to help Guatemalans affected by the volcano eruption, you can donate to the Red Cross.
