In recent months, young rap newcomer YBN Nahmir‘s breakout viral it "Rubbin’ Off The Paint" has become one of the youth-driven SoundCloud scene’s most talked-about records — even Vince Staples remixed the popular track. Despite some controversy concerning the song, the track continues to generate buzz for its creator and aid others.
Following last month’s video for "Self-Made," singing superstar Bryson Tiller serves up a new track titled "Birmingham." Instead of cooking up something entirely original, Tiller instead opts to produce his own rework of "Rubbin’ Off The Paint," further supporting Nahmir’s movement and giving his own massive fanbase some new sounds to digest. Also of significance: the song’s title comes from the name of the city Tiller brought his latest tour to and Nahmir’s hometown.
"Ever since I got to Europe, I’ve been planning to see / 20 million once again, this time, I’m playing for keeps," Tiller spits, referencing his current trek. "I went double on my first, f*ck you saying to me?/ I’ll quit talking sh*t when these n*ggas quit playing with me." From the sound of his boasts, brags and overall confidence, Tiller is looking to climb even further up the ranks once he comes back to the studio; his European tour concludes in Dublin on November 30, so it won’t be long until he’s back perfecting his next huge hit.
