BET Awards 2017 | Behind the Lights of Swae Lee

Learn why Swae Lee is so poppin'!
  1. #MannequinChallenge

    Swae Lee and Slim Jxmmi put their own spin on the already viral #MannequinChallenge. The purpose of the Mannequin Challenge is to stay still like a mannequin, which is pretty simple. Rae Sremmurd added their song "Black Beatles" to the background of their #MannequinChallenge video and then had the crowd go wild at the end, which ended up spawning many more videos just like it.

  2. Got Kicked Out

    Back in 2012, Swae and his bro Slim Jxmmi were put out of their mother’s house. In the end, that move pushed the duo to pursue their musical dreams even further and make it to where they are today.

  3. #WCW: Malia Obama

    The young star sounded off to TMZ about what he would do if he could take Malia Obama on a date. "We gonna go on a dinner date, 200 feet in the air on a suspended table. Five star restaurant,” Swae says. “After that, we gonna go to the beach. We gon’ do what we do on the beach. Might go on some jet skis. Then, I’ma take you home." He's really trying to hit the Bahamas with her. So Malia, if you're watching, Swae Lee is down for a date!

  4. Another Dance Craze

    Swae Lee jumped on the track with French Montana for his Afro-inspired new single "Unforgettable," the video for which was shot in Uganda. The moves of the dancers in the video will inspire you to show off your illest footwork too. The choreography was so great, in fact, it spawned a new internet dance craze, #UnforgettableChallenge.

  5. Pet Piglets

    Swae Lee always finds himself doing something crazy or different. He's definitely a trendsetter in the game, so it's no surprise that even when purchasing a pet, he didn't go for a traditional animal.

  6. Solo Album

    Swae Lee will be taking everyone on a Swaecation soon as he plans the release of his first solo project, Swaecation. Lee noted to Complex, "I have eight songs right now that I feel like are candidates for the project. But I gotta make sure they're all up to par."
