YBN is a hip-hop collective that formed in 2014 on Xbox Live. Originally a gaming collective, the group decided to dive into music after members YBN Nahmir and YBN Almighty Jay had been freestyling in Xbox Live group charts. They gained traction in 2015 after uploading their track “Rubbin’ Off the Paint,” eventually charting on the Billboard 100. Since the success of their debut hit single, YBN has released a string of successful singles, including 2018’s “No Relations.” The collective includes a total of ten members, all of which come from several backgrounds including promoters, producers, social media personalities, and rappers, including YBN Cordae. Although the newest member of the group (recruited in 2018), YBN Cordae has the most years of experience rapping from previous projects.
