Swae Lee is a member of an American hip hop duo Rae Sremmurd. The other part of the duo is his own brother Slim Jxmmy.
They are extremely popular nowadays and their net worth is counted in millions.
Swae Lee was born on June 7, 1993 in Inglewood, California. His real name is Khalif Malik Ibn Shaman Brown.
While he was very young, his family moved to Tupelo in Mississippi, where he and his brother Aaquil were raised in a very problematic part of the town, whitnessing crimes on a daily basis. They always did their best not to get involved in any trouble, since that was pretty easy in that neighbourhood.
His parents got divorced very soon after they moved and it was very difficult for him and his brother to make peace with it. They decided to take their own path and they left what you may call home, and found shelters in abandoned houses. They decided to start doing what they love, music, all on their own.
Although Lee and Jxmmi have faced several hardships in their lives, their passion for music never dropped. Due to their hard work and dedication, they soon found recognition and joined the ranks of the most popular rappers in the States.
The brothers started to perform together at parties and numerous shows in their town. This was the only way for them to get started and to try and make a career for themselves. Eventually, it payed off.
They came to an idea to invite one mutual friend and create a band, a group called “Dem Outta State Boyz”. They started uploading their songs and videos to YouTube, aiming for it’s wide audience.
The band was a minor success and the brothers wanted to make music on their own.
They eventually decided to move to Atlanta where they hoped they will get more recognized in music. They were happy to hear that there were much open opportunities for them.
They signed a contract with Mike WiLL Made-It and his label EarDrummers Entertainment as a new band with a new name: Rae Sremmurd.
He and his brother Slim Jimmy released their first single “We” in 2013, but the song hasn’t gained much attention.
They released their first debut single naned “No Flex Zone” in May 2014. This was their first hit and they almost became stars overnight.
This single made it to #35 on US Billboard Hot 100 list. The next single even got higher, to #16 on the same chart.
The brothers released two studio albums under the label EarDrummers, namely ‘SremmLife’ and ‘SremmLife 2’. Swae Lee announced that he will release his solo album in 2016 and it will be called “Swaecation”.
