Rae Sremmurd Announce Headline Shows

At long last, emerging rap superstars RAE SREMMURD announce headline shows in Melbourne and Sydney in addition to their previously announced appearances at Listen Out festival in September and October.

Having taught themselves to produce and DJ at an early age, brothers Khalif (aka “Swae Lee”) and Aaquil (aka “Slim Jimmy”) Brown – found their voice hosting parties in Tupelo, Mississippi. Emulating the styles of Lil Wayne, Eazy-E and Soulja Boy, the duo rapidly built a reputation as an irrepressibly energetic outfit. After migrating to Atlanta the brothers caught the attention of multi-platinum producer Mike WiLL Made-It (Rihanna, Jay Z, Kanye West, 2 Chainz), who immediately signed them to his label, Ear Drummer Records.

In January, Rae Sremmurd released their singular debut, SremmLife, which quickly claimed the #1 position on Billboard’s R&B/Hip Hop Album Charts. Included on the record were the pair’s breakout hits: “No Flex Zone” and “No Type”, which have collectively accumulated just over 360 million views on YouTube alone.

The duo will be joined at both dates by FLORIA: a rising star in Australia’s burgeoning alt-R&B scene. Taking aesthetic cues from Cashmere Cat and Shlohmo in his production, Floria’s vocal style echoes contemporary titans like Drake and The Weeknd effortlessly.

“Above all else Rae Sremmurd pull you in with their synergy and symmetry:
SremmLife is a less of an album and more of a way of life.” – Pitchfork

“[Rae Sremmurd] radiate youthful fervor.” – New York Times
