Nick Simmons, known as YBN Nahmir, was among the teenaged rappers who made a commercial breakthrough in 2017. The Birmingham, AL native developed his exuberant and combative style – inspired by Bay Area figures such as E-40 and Mozzy – during online gaming parties. He formed the YBN collective, and started uploading tracks to social media platforms. He initially gained traction with “Rubbin Off the Paint” which hit the Billboard Hot 100 and peaked in December at #46.
