Right now, American duo Rae Sremmurd is an exploding volcano of energy pumping out wave after wave of songs hot as lava. The earth began to rumble in 2014 when producer Mike Will Made It picked up the young talent and signed them to his EarDrummers label. This is where the strange name came from. Rae Sremmurd is Ear Drummers spelled backward.
Ever since busting out the gates with the single “No Flex Zone” the group has sprinted toward the top of the charts and into international fame deep enough to go on a 30-date European Tour that brings them as far as Krakow.
Their anthem about non-discrimination when it comes to girls, “No Type” is approaching 500 million views on YouTube. The bumping “Throw Some Mo” features rap royalty Nicki Minaj and Young Thug.
Now, their lyrics are about as deep as a puddle and employ only the most basic rhyme schemes, but give them credit for the refreshing absence of content about shooting guns and selling drugs despite coming from honest poverty in Mississippi.
This basically leaves three topics: spending money on expensive things, girls and epic parties. But they’ve perfected this into an art. And it keeps things light and fun.
Unlike many rappers committed to a tough and ice cold exterior, Rae Sremmurd leave no doubts they are relishing in their new and growing fame. Wearing extravagant outfits, jumping up and down on the stage, their big grins encourage you to get in the party. Swae Lee’s smooth delivery is a perfect counterpoint to Slim Jxmmi’s exuberant liveliness. The real brothers define ‘double trouble.’
Unlike most of the big names in music that come to Krakow in the twilight of their careers (think Green Day or Red Hot Chilli Peppers), Rea Sremmurd is surfing the wave of the current Number 1 hit on the charts.
“Black Beatles” shows the growing stars continue to innovate and succeed in something other rappers would never even dare trying: singing.
It even features living legend Gucci Mane.
Rae Sremmurd is typically playing large arenas and massive festivals. So take advantage of the chance to see them at Klub Kwadrat, a way more intimate venue where you can get so close that when they inevitably take off their shirts, you can even see the details of their tattoos.
Rae Sremmurd comes to Klub Kwadrat on February 3rd, 2017. Tickets start at 105pln and can be bought at www.knockoutprod.net/sklep
