The brothers were the second artists to be the cover feature of “Essence” magazine’s digital issue.
“My take on fashion is to dress in a way that looks good to you and makes you—and other people—feel good,” Slim Jxmmi told the publication. Avon Dorsey, Essence‘s contributing fashion editor, said he wanted to make sure and capture both Swae Lee and Slim Jxmmi’s unique sense of style. “I wanted to dress them in a way that honored who they are — which is fun and expressive — while adding an element of high-fashion, choosing this season’s brightly-hued neon trend as inspiration for styling the brothers,” Dorsey said.
“Spring is almost in full bloom and we’re ushering in the season with one of hip-hop’s most flourishing acts, @raesremmurd,” Essence wrote on Instagram. In another, the magazine teased a portion of their interview with the brothers by quoting one of them as saying, “My mom and Black women, period, taught [us] to just be strong, man, and to take care of people. And spread love.”
Meanwhile, Rae Sremmurd recently shut down rumors that they were breaking up with a tweetthat read, ” Brothers gonna be brothers, it’s SREMMLIFE forever.” The Mississippi duo stated that fans can expect for SREMMLIFE 4 top drop sometime this year.
