Rae Sremmurd ended 2018 with a special performance at State Farm Arena in Atlanta. The hip-hop duo, who inspired the viral mannequin challenge in 2016, gave Atlanta Hawks fans a night to remembers as the team defeated the Cleveland Cavs in a close game on Saturday, Dec. 29.

Group members Slim Jxmmi and Swae Lee performed during halftime and post-game following the Hawks victory over the Cavs. Rae Sremmurd’s top hits include “Black Beatles,” “No Type” and “Perplexing Pegasus.”
