Swae Lee is known as an American rapper. He is most famous for being one half of the rap group, Rae Sremmurd.
Khalif Malik Ibn Shaman Brown was born on June 7, 1993 in Inglewood, CA. His family relocated to Tupelo, Mississippi when he and his sibling Slim Jxmmi were still young. The siblings were brought up in the Ida Street lodging projects, which were famous for their high levels of crime and poverty. Around this time the siblings' folks split up, which eventually prompted them to look for housing in deserted homes.
Swae Lee and his brother started their way in music by framing Dem Outta St8 Boyz with Jemiah Middlebrooks. Eventually, the siblings took off all alone, and had local accomplishment with the single "Party Animal." In 2013 the couple signed to the EarDrummers Entertainment label as Rae Sremmurd, which was the label name spelled in reverse. They proceeded to discharge two studio records, SremmLife (2015) and SremmLife 2 (2016), finishing off the Hot 100 with the multi-platinum hit "Black Beatles" with Gucci Mane. They also became popular for their song "Toss Sum Mo" with Nicki Minaj and Young Thug.
Swae Lee has not revealed any public information about his personal and private relationships.
In Jan 2020, news broke concerning the stepfather of hip-hop team Rae Sremmurd. It was reported that he was killed in Mississippi and their brother was being held for the crime. Police found a man dead at a home in the group's old neighborhood of Tupelo. The man, recognized by Lee County Coroner Carolyn Green as Floyd Sullivan passed on from obvious discharge wounds.
Kerry Smalls, a representative for the Rae Sremmurd, affirmed that Sullivan is their stepfather and their sibling, Michael Brown was held in custody regarding the shooting. Tupelo Police Capt. Charles McDougald said Brown is an individual of interest and is being held for mental analysis. McDougald didn't state what prompted the shooting, taking note that the examination was in its primer stages.
Swae Lee posted a message after news broke of his stepfather's demise, writing "I pray this world let’s me keep some compassion." Fans were confused as to if Swae Lee was directing the message to his brother or someone else.
