Rae Sremmurd “drummers ear” spelled backwards is an American hip hop duo originating from Tupelo, Mississippi formed by two brothers, Slim Jxmmi and Swae Lee. In 2013, they signed a record deal with Mike Will Made It’s EarDrummers imprint. In January 2015, the duo released their debut album SremmLife, which was certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). In August 2016, the duo released their second album, SremmLife 2. During that same year, the duo also created their own record label, called SremmLife Crew Records. The duo is best known for their single “Black Beatles” from SremmLife 2, which topped the US Billboard Hot 100, while also charting internationally in the top ten in many countries. The duo also released other platinum-certified singles such as “No Type”, “No Flex Zone” and “Swang”. Their third studio album, SR3MM was released on May 4, 2018, and served as a triple-album.
Aaquil Iben Shamon Brown (also known as Slim Jxmmi) and his little brother Khalif Malik Ibn Shamon Brown (also known as Swae Lee) were born in Whittier, California. They grew up with their mother, Bernadette Walker, and their brother, Michael, their father having abandoned his family a few years after the birth of his sons.
Their mother worked for the Army and was regularly moved around to different states. The family moved several times, leaving California for Mississippi and Maryland and finally settling in the military post of Fort Hood in Texas. The two brothers started practicing, dancing and writing music together at an early age. In Texas, around his 10th birthday, Khalif learned to produce music using Fruity Loops.
