Rae Sremmurd, the Atlanta-based duo comprised of brothers Swae Lee and Slim Jimmy, have made a name for themselves in hip-hop this year.
Rae Sremmurd, or “Ear Drummers” spelled backwards, began collaborating with Mike WiLL Made It in 2013 and experienced their first successes with the catchy track, “No Flex Zone.” Ear Drummers is the name of the label the brothers signed to on January 1, 2014.
“No Flex Zone” peaked #36 on the US Billboard Hot 100 Chart, but the song that really propelled them into fame is “No Type.” No Type peaked at #16 on the Billboard Hot 100 and got fans of the song wondering exactly who Rae Sremmurd is.
Someone else has also taken note of the up-and-coming duo: Nicki Minaj. It was the Nicki Minaj and Pusha T remix of “No Flex Zone” that gave the song and the duo new life in the media. And when Rae Sremmurd released their debut album, SremmLife, in 2018, they featured Nicki Minaj on their hit song “Throw Some Mo.”
The two are currently on the road and aggressively touring according to their website. Rae Sremmurd is definitely a name to look out for, and 2018 will most likely be a good year for them.
