The second of four cover stars for Issue 103 of Clash is the party-starting rap duo, Rae Sremmurd.
Aaquil “Slim Jxmmi” Brown and his younger sibling, Khalif “Swae Lee” Brown, are enjoying a huge wave of success right now, thanks to ‘Black Beatles’, a Gucci Mane-assisted single from last year’s ‘SremmLife 2’. The early fan favourite gained notoriety on a whole new level when it became the soundtrack to the mannequin challenge, and propelled the rap duo to an international audience. “Everything has just been times 10,” Jxmmi tells Clash of the last 12 months.
Also in the new issue are features with Karen Elson, Ryan Adams, Sundara Karma, Big Sean, Raye, Julia Michaels, Ray Davies, Tinie Tempah, and James Blunt.
