The Mississippi brothers known as hip-hop duo Rae Sremmurd are releasing their debut album, "SremmLife," next month.

Out Jan. 6, 2015, "SremmLife" is being executively produced by Mike Will Made-It, who also produced Miley Cyrus'"Bangerz" and Future's "Honest." The album is the first release from the Ear Drummer Records/Interscope Records imprint.

Rae Sremmurd, the duo of Swae Lee and Slim Jimmy, were born and raised in Tupelo, Miss. Signed to Ear Drummer Records, in May they released their debut single, "No Flex Zone," which was a top 40 hit on the Billboard Hot 100.

Rae Sremmurd performed "No Type" with The Roots on NBC's "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon" last week. This week, they released the audio for another single from "SremmLife," "Throw Sum Mo," featuring Nicki Minaj and Young Thug.

"It's dope to see these guys work hard and stay humble, to come from nothing and become a part of the Ear Drummer movement -- our family -- working sun up to sun down, recording, coming up with new ideas," Made-It said of Rae Semmurd. "The impact is so strong now. It's amazing to see 'No Flex Zone' and 'No Type,' two songs that we did last year, become two of the biggest singles this year, to have the cultural impact that they're having. ...

"The album came together so easily and organically; it was really a fun album to make. I'm just as excited about this album as I was about Miley Cyrus's album, as I was about Future's album."
