Anyone who’s been paying attention to the recent waves knows how much potential, and just how powerful the YBN crew may be one day. With a strong collective mindset that mirrors the likes of the A$AP crew, they’ve been slowly but steadily rising over the past few years.
Alongside others like YBN Cordae, Nahmir is one of the leaders of the group who’s proven his versatility is almost unmatched right now. All that talent and work ethic at such a young age is putting these young trailblazers in a good place for the future.
"Chief Keef got a big influence on the rap game. He paved the way [for the new wave]. Chief Keef was a big influence on us, I can't even lie to you.” Being influenced by the right people is what allows the new wave to keep on the path to new sounds and creative dispositions. It’s what allows the genre to continue forming.
"Everybody just put the Mario Kart beat on, with the autotune turned all the up way to 150, and just be in there mumbling harmonies and sh*t, that's weak to us. We some old, young n*ggas - we really listen to rap, we don't do no mumbling sh*t. We can really rap.”
Undoubtedly they can, with their skillful lyricism and genre-bending sounds theres no telling where the young YBN crew is headed.
