Khalif Malik Ibn Shaman Brown (born June 7, 1993),[1][2] known professionally as Swae Lee, is an American rapper, singer, and songwriter. Known for his wide vocal range and genre bending, Swae Lee is one half of the hip hop duo Rae Sremmurd with his brother Slim Jxmmi. As a member of Rae Sremmurd, he achieved success with the singles "No Flex Zone", "No Type" and "Black Beatles", the latter of which topped the Billboard Hot 100 chart. In 2017, he was featured French Montana's single "Unforgettable", which earned him his first top ten on the Billboard Hot 100 as a soloist, and was later certified 9× Platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).

He was also nominated for the Grammy Award for Song of the Year in 2017 for co-writing Beyoncé's single "Formation". In 2018, Swae Lee released his debut solo studio album Swaecation; which was apart of Rae Sremmurd's third album, SR3MM (2018), which was a triple album. In the same year, his single "Sunflower" (with Post Malone) was the promotional and lead single to the soundtrack for the film Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (2018). The song peaked atop the Billboard Hot 100, and earned him a Diamond certification, after it was certified 11× Platinum by the RIAA,[3] and was also nominated for two Grammy Awards.[4] He was also featured on the single "Close to Me" by Ellie Goulding and Diplo, which reached number one on the US Adult Top 40 airplay chart. In 2020, he released the single "Be Like That" with Kane Brown and Khalid, which reached the top 20 on the Billboard Hot 100.
