Last September, YBN Nahmir released a video for the YBN: The Mixtape cut “Up-Top Baby.” Now, the 19-year-old superstar is back with another new single and visual, “Baby 8.” Today’s offering doesn’t appear to be attached to any specific rollout or promotional campaign; Nahmir is just giving his fans some new sights and sounds until his next major project. Notably, the music video comes to us courtesy of producer Kaneki and award-winning director and filmmaker Matt Alonzo, who has previously worked with Kendrick Lamar, The Game, Chris Brown, Common, Nas, Migos and many other high-profile acts.
“All these bitches sneaky on my bro, you gotta watch those / N***as really switching over fame, they talking like hoes / All my n***as trapping really savage and they got poles / 7 n***as tripping, gonna put them in a choke hold / They say, ‘N***a,’ when I hop out that wraith / And they all tryna come be my friend but I just want the cake,” YBN Nahmir raps on his new single. “True to myself cuz I know a lot of n***as fake / I used to want clout, I grew up from that phase / Making me play, so that ‘Rari switch lanes / N***as gon hate, give two f*cks cause I’m paid / Always make noise when we come to your state / Keep playing games, we gon’ come to your place / And bounce out with K’s.”
