Consisting of real life brothers Slim Jimmy and Swae Lee, Rae Sremmurd’s first single under the Eardruma Records umbrella, “We,” appeared as a snippet in December 2013 on #MikeWiLLBeenTriLL — Mike WiLL’s heralded collaboration with #Been Trill# that garnered over one million views on the popular mixtape website LiveMixtapes. A full version of the single was premiered by FADER in early 2014, earning the group co-signs and support from the likes of Juicy J, Diplo, and many more.
Best known for their lead single “No Flex Zone,” which peaked at number 36 on the Hot 100 Chart in November 2014, and also served as an early taste of what Rae Sremmurd offered fans with their debut mixtape, SremmLife.
This project turned out to be a breakout moment for Rae Sremmurd, and goes to show that it’s just the next step in showing the world what two young brothers from Tupelo, Mississippi can achieve. “It’s the energy, that’s what #SremmLife is all about” says Swae Lee. “We bringing the fun back to music!”
