Is Swae Lee From Guatemala?

Swae Lee Bio: Age, Early Life, Parents, and Education
Born as Khalif Malik ibn Shaman Brown on the 7th June 1995, Swae is the son of a single mother Bernadette Walker; in addition to Slim Jxmmi, he has another brother, Michael; his biological father left the family just a couple of years following the birth of the third child. His mother, Bernadette, was working in the army, which meant frequent moves, as a result of which, the brothers lived in Mississippi, Maryland, and Texas, before they finally settled in the somewhat notorious Ida Street housing projects of Tupelo, Mississippi.
During his high school years, he and his brother became interested in music, and it was then that they took their first steps towards music by creating a hip-hop band named Dem Outta St8 Boyz, consisting out of Jemiah Middlebrooks, who called himself Lil Pantz, while Swae was then Kid Krunk, and his brother was CaliBoy. They struggled to make an impact, and after a few singles they fell apart, with Swae and his brother later on forming the duo Rae Sremmurd – their label EarDrummers spelt backwards.
