Rae Sremmurd is an American hip hop duo originating from Tupelo, Mississippi formed by Swae Lee and Slim Jxmmi. The group released their debut album SremmLife in 2015, which went on to sell over 1,000,000 copies in the US and was certified Platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). The name “Rae Sremmurd” is derived from the duo’s home label, EarDrummers, by spelling each word backwards.

The duo are best known for their singles “Black Beatles” from SremmLife 2, which peaked at number 1 on the US Billboard Hot 100 while also charting in the top ten in territories across the world, and “No Type”, “No Flex Zone”, and “Throw Sum Mo” from SremmLife. The duo had been working for several years under the moniker “Dem Outta St8 Boyz”, producing music at home and playing at local parties in their mother’s basement and bars. Back then they went by the names Kid Krunk (Swae Lee), Caliboy (Slim Jxmmi), and Lil Pantz. Lil Pantz is no longer a part of the group. They used money from their part-time jobs to buy equipment, travel and audition for contests.

The boys performed as a trio with an additional member named Andre Harrys, and appeared on television during the “Wild Out Wednesday” segment on BET’s hip hop and R&B show 106 and Park. The trio appeared on the segment for a second time,finished second place overall in the competition, and arranged meetings with representatives from record labels Def Jam Recordings and Sony Music. However, they did not sign any record deals at that time.

Dem Outta St8 Boyz signed with EarDrummers Entertainment on January 1, 2014, changing their name to Rae Sremmurd(which is ear drummers spelled backwards) Rae Sremmurd released their debut album, SremmLife, on January 6, 2015. SremmLife debuted at number 5 on the US Billboard 200, and was supported and spawned by four singles. Its lead single, titled “No Flex Zone” was released on May 18, 2014. The song gained considerable attention, after it was officially remixed featuring rappers Nicki Minaj and Pusha T. The single peaked at number 36 on the US Billboard Hot 100. On September 15, 2014, they released their second single, titled “No Type”, which climbed to number 16 on the Billboard Hot 100.

Both singles have been certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). The third single from the album, “Throw Sum Mo”, which features guest vocals from American rappers Nicki Minaj and Young Thug, was released on December 9, 2014. The song peaked at number 30 on the Billboard Hot 100. “This Could Be Us” went on to serve as SremmLife’s fourth single, and was released to US urban adult contemporary radio on April 21, 2015. On September 29, 2015, they released their fifth single from the album, titled “Come Get Her”.

On June 16, 2016, Rae Sremmurd announced that their next album, SremmLife 2, would be released on August 12, 2016. The album includes their first Billboard number-one song “Black Beatles”, which topped the chart in the issue dated November 26, 2016.[10] It also gave Gucci Mane his first number one. On August 12, 2016, Swae Lee announced his debut solo album, Swaecation. In 2016, Rae Sremmurd entered a feud with Ebro Darden over Complex’s ranking of them of their year end list.
