Rae Sremmurd And ESPN Team For 'Sremmlife' NBA Series

(Radio.com) Rae Sremmurd's next album is rumored to be an epic three-parter, but the hip-hop duo have another project in the works that involves three-pointers.

The rappers (who also enjoy sports commentary) will star in Sremmlife x ESPN, a new series that explores "NBA Life from the minds of Rae Sremmurd."

The premise is simple: brothers Swae Lee and Slim Jxmmi will record video shorts from their home in Los Angeles, documenting their thoughts on major developments in the NBA. They'll make predictions (in the trailer, Swae and Jxmmi say the Golden State Warriors will win the NBA Finals) and weigh in on other important pro basketball matters.

The trailer also features a heavy dose of Rae Sremmurd's music so the series could double as a platform to promote new material. "You've been drafted to the Sremm-B-A," Jxmmi promises in the clip.

As fans await Sremmlife 3, Sremmlife x ESPN promises even more Rae Sremmurd content for the world to enjoy. Watch the trailer here.

Miley And Noah Cyrus Meet 'The Lizzie McGuire Movie' Star

(Radio.com) It's hard to believe 15 years have passed since Lizzie McGuire (the OG Disney Channel heroine, played by Hilary Duff) unmasked her love interest Paolo as a musical fraud at the end of The Lizzie McGuire Movie.

"This Is What Dreams Are Made Of," from that film, was a triumphant anthem for a generation of Lizzie fans, including Miley Cyrus and her younger sister Noah. This weekend, the sisters Cyrus met the real-life Paolo (actor Yani Gellman) and documented the occasion on social media.

In an Instagram pic, Noah posed with Yani and Miley (herself a Disney Channel veteran) with the movie-reference caption: "Sing to me, Paolo." She and Miley also covered "This Is What Dreams Are Made Of" in a Snapchat update.

See the Cyrus sisters' throwback celebration (and Disney villain run-in) here.
