Rae Sremmurd Feat. Juicy J
Good googly moogly. Rae Sremmurd has released the video for SremmLife 2's requisite ass anthem, "Shake It Fast" ft. Juicy J, and the booty quotient is off the charts. Possibly the highest of any music video released in 2016. Slim Jxmmi and Swae Lee head to the pool with Juicy J and a legion of beautiful, voluptuous women eager to shake their asses. The result is literally an ass-shaking montage. Shoutout to whoever edited this video.
