In an era where rap crews are beginning to become popular again, one that has been making considerable noise is YBN, a collective of rappers with potential to become rap's next big stars. Founded by YBN Nahmir after he and core members YBN Almighty Jay and YBN Cordae met while gaming online, the ragtag crew of teenagers began to catch a buzz in late 2017, when YBN Nahmir's single \"Rubbin Off The Paint,\" became a viral hit, turning the Birmingham, Alabama native into an overnight sensation.
I'm tapped in with everybody from the Bay, Mozzy, all of them. I used to be on the internet a lot, so all my friends on the internet were from California. I was always around them [online], so I started to sound like them. I think that's really why. Most of my friends that live in Birmingham, some of them are from Vallejo. I don't really hang around people from Alabama for real, except for my cousins and them. I guess that's what makes the big impact.
It was just a hobby, something I did when I was bored. I recently started taking it serious because of \"Rubbin Off The Paint.\" I always tried to take it serious, but it was like a It ain't finna get me nowhere-type of mindset. But then, soon as \"Rubbin Off The Paint\" was finna do numbers, I was like, Yeah, we're gonna get on this music stuff for real.
Some were from the gaming community, that I already know. Some were just YouTube beats that were free, so I used them, but now I've gotta pay for them. I thought they were free because they said \"free\" online, but you still gotta pay for the exclusive, and I didn't know that. Now I have my own producer, he makes my own beats. My homeboy Hoodzone, he's in YBN too.
It's cool. I'm trying not to get too big-headed. I've got to always still look over my shoulder because I'm from Birmingham. It's a lot of hate in my city. I gotta watch who I'm hanging with. I can't trust nobody, for real, for real. I know I can trust a few people, but still, there's that feeling that you have to watch your back from everybody. You can't slip up. Because in a second it can all be taken away. I don't want anything to happen. That's why I'm trying to stay low-key and stay out the streets, to be honest with you.

Despite flexing some diamond chains at the beginning of 2022, YBN Nahmir has spent most of this year trying to get some help. The Young Boss N-gga co-founder revealed in March that he was an alcoholic and that he would be falling back from the spotlight in order to seek treatment. 59ce067264
