Rae Sremmurd fans know the duo's mother doesn't think they're living so right, but as guests on ESPN's Highly Questionable on Thursday (Sept. 29) the two brothers explained why they were kicked out of their mama's house in 2012. "I think most of the time it was cause we came in late and we had school the next morning," Swae Lee says in the above clip. "We came in late we’d just be loud making songs, making beats on Fruity Loops. We had a lot of energy."

As Slim Jxmmi tells it though, the move was for the best as they were able to focus on their music. "We was grown. We had to go pursue our dreams," he says. "We had a choice. We didn’t want to be staying under the same roof when we knew we had to go chase whatever we wanted. We weren’t waiting for it to be handed to us so we really got out there and got it. We took a lot of risks. We just did what we had to do." Swae added, "We was trying to get to the big stage so we was doing everything we could do."

The duo was promoting their new album SremmLife 2 which is out now, and debuted at no. 7 on the Billboard Album 200 chart back in August. Watch the full interview above, where the two recall the Govorners Ball performance where Jxmmi broke his leg, what it waas like working with Beyonce on "Formation," and more.
