Go ahead: pronounce this hiphop group's name. Sounds like you're rewinding yourself, eh? Well, pretty close. Rae Sremmurd is in fact "Ear Drummers" spelled backwards.
The two brothers out of Tupelo, Mississippi, Khalif "Swae Lee" Brown and Aaquil "Slim Jxmmi" Brown first went as (the surprisingly not-as-catchy) Dem Outta St8 Boyz, but soon changed their name after signing with EarDrummers Entertainment, where they became about as overnight of a success as you could get. They've just completed a host of opening gigs for Miss Lemonade herself, Beyoncé, and are about to embark on their first headlining tour.
How does one describe them? Well, think as original but weirder than Outkast. Ah, heck - why are we spending time trying to pigeonhole them when you can watch multicoloured T-Rexes wearing bling while jousting each other...
