YBN Nahmir is a vibrant, talented, and fast-rising rapper who doubles as the leader of the rap crew, Young Boss Niggaz (YBN). The clique started as a loose group of friends playing the video game Grand Theft Auto V together. From just having fun online, Nahmir began freestyling while gaming and shortly after, the rest caught the freestyling bug which led Nahmir to bring the gamers together under the umbrella, YBN.
The YBN collective, so far, boasts of more than ten rappers as well as collaborations with popular artists such as Lil Skies, Machine Gun Kelly, and Gucci Mane. Nahmir, on his own part, has been improving his craft since he launched his musical career in 2014.
YBN Nahmir Bio (Age), Where is He From?
The rapper/songwriter was born on December 18th, 1999 and named Nicholas Simmons. He is a native of Birmingham, Alabama, in the U.S, where he was born. Simmons had an absent father while growing up, this caused his mother to singlehandedly raise him with the help of the rapper’s older siblings and grandfather. His older cousins and brothers would usually get involved in criminal acts and it influenced his childhood to a great extent.
YBN Nahmir joined Clay-Chalkville High School, in Clay, Alabama, for his high school studies but he later dropped out and started taking online classes after his hit song “Rubbin Off the Paint” brought success his way.

The Los-Angeles-based rapper launched his career in 2014 but shared his first song titled “Hood Mentality” on YouTube on 21st March 2015. More songs followed but couldn’t earn him much attention among rap lovers until January 2, 2017, when he released his debut mixtape on Soundcloud titled “Believe In The Glo”. It paved the way for the success he has recorded in his career.
Following the small-scale popularity “Believe In The Glo” brought his path, the rapper went ahead to drop another mixtape on SoundCloud on January 21, 2017.
