In the world of hip-hop, Rae Sremmurd have established themselves as the rappers unafraid to be themselves. Not every rapper can mix falsetto with the classic trap cadence that’s so popular in hip-hop right now — but the brothers do it flawlessly.
Their infectious tracks are hard to ignore. In fact, their 2016 song “Black Beatles” became a No. 1 hit thanks to the Mannequin Challenge that had everyone — from Michelle Obama at the White House to Ava DuVernay on the set of Wrinkle in Time — freezing in frame. But true hip-hop fans had already fell in love with their flow’s whimsical approach thanks to hits like “No Flex Zone,” “No Type” and “Come Get Her.”
But in a very different world, the world of fashion, the siblings have become known as fearless and authentically themselves. Rae Sremmurd, with their infamously hard to pronounce name, wear sequins, plaids and pasteled strips, even on the digital cover of ESSENCE, in an industry known to force rappers into hyper masculinity.
