Swae Lee and Slim Jimmy are two brothers and members of an American hip hop duo Rae Sremmurd.
They became very popular and their net worth is somewhere around $4 million, mostly coming from Slim Jimmy.
Swae Lee was born on June 7, 1993 in Inglewood, California as Khalif Malik Ibn Shaman Brown and his brother Aaquil Ibinshaman Brown also known as Slim Jimmy was born on December 29, 1991 in the same place.
They were very young when their family moved to Tupelo in Mississippi, where the brothers were raised. It was not a very nice part of town but quite troublesome.
The brothers were oftenly being proposed to entering gangs and similar and they say that they are thankful for the fact that they never got involved into any major crimes.
They tried very hard not to get in any trouble, although it was easy since it was a criminal environment.
Their parents got divorced soon after moving to Tupelo and that made a great impact on the brothers. They decided to focus on the music and friends to get over their split easier. They left home and their mother Bernadette who was absent a lot through their childhood, unhappy with their own position found a shelter in empty and abandoned houses. They have an older brother Michael.
Their childhood was very hard due to all of these problems which they couldn’t avoid, but the brothers could make music however. Writing lyrics saved them from going mad, as they said.
Their mother worked for the military and that is the reason why the family moved a lot, until they settled in Fort Hood in Texas.
Being on their own, the brothers developed a special connection and started rapping together in elementary school. They were unseparable.
When they were in middle school their mother Bernadette finally left the army and settled with a new partner Floyd. They got another son together, also named Floyd. The brothers felt very insecure in that environment so they turned even more to music, hoping for a better future for themselves.
Their passion for music never dropped although they were having a really rough time. They soon found recognition amongst fans due to their dedicated music making and became an extremely popular rapping duo in the States.
For a several years they performed under the name Dem Outta St8 Boyz. This was their breakthrough name and they oftenly joke about it today.
Two brothers formed a hip hop band called Rae Sremmurd. They signed a big record deal in 2013, and two years later they released their first album called SremmLife which came platinum in America.
Their biggest success were singles No Flex Zone and No Type which got a lot of streams both on iTunes and Spotify. They were accepted very well and the brothers could not believe it.
They also made a number with Nicki Minaj, which skyrocketed their fame. The boys said Nicki was very nice to work with and very kind to even give them some tips.
In 2016, this great duo released their sophomore album SremmLife 2 and they even started their own record label named Sremm Life Crew Records.
The brothers started to perform at parties in their town trying to get known and to earn some money. In that period it was the only way for them to succeed and to make a career out of the music they adored so much. Eventually, they began getting good results and this helped them engage in music industry later on, when they started to do serious work.
They invited one friend and created a band “Dem Outta State Boyz”. They began uploading songs and videos to YouTube, because it was a much faster way to get a wide audience.
The band had some success but the brothers always aimed on making their own duo band because they felt they are at their best when there is only the two of them. They got along very well and they function as if they were one person only.
They moved to Atlanta where they knew that they will get more recognition. There were much more opportunities for rappers in Atlanta. At that time Atlanta was being a top city for rappers and the boys thought this was their best shot to try and get some sponsors or collaborations.
They signed a contract with a label house EarDrummers Entertainment owned by Mike Will Made-It and became a new band with a new name: Rae Sremmurd which is EarDrummers spelled backward.
Slim Jimmy and Swae Lee released their first single “We” in 2013, but it hasn’t stirred the rapping scene much. It only gained attention from their strong fanbase on their social media but didn’t go much further.
They released their first single “No Flex Zone” in the spring of 2014 and it became their first hit. They became known overnight.
This single made it to a very high No35 on US Billboard Hot 100 .
Their next single ‘No Type’ was also a big success.
The brothers released two albums: ‘SremmLife’ and ‘SremmLife 2’. In 2016 Swae Lee released his solo album “Swaecation”.
Their first album SremmLife became platinum in America.
Their collaboration with Nicki Minaj made them so famous that they thought of starting a tour without even getting a manager, since they got one after signing a huge deal with a production company.
After releasing the second album they started their own record label named Sremm Life Crew Records.
The brothers both live in California and are currently dating girls.
They try to keep their lives private and stay close to eachother. Slimmy claims that it’s hard not to get changed by social media and that he and his brother are trying very hard to remain best friends.
