YBN Nahmir
Age: 17
Reppin: Birmingham, AL

Nahmir’s recently released track ‘Rubbin Off The Paint’ has made way for one of the most exciting come-ups of 2017. The Alabama native’s rambuncious flow and classical Southern style is lighting up the streets, as his viral hit brings attention to a slept-on discography. As YBN continues to add to his arsenal, we’ll await patiently by hitting repeat on his SoundCloud page.

Duwap Kaine
Age: 15
Reppin: Atlanta, GAWithout a meme or some other type of corny gimmick, it’s nearly impossible for a 15-year-old to break out in the rap game. Duwap Kaine is defying the odds, as he’s currently shaking up the scene in Georgia with one of the most organic followings in recent memory. He’s already got the coveted Pi’erre Bourne co-sign, and has been cranking out hits with the ‘Magnolia’ producer for months. It’s only a matter of time until this kid is literally everywhere.

Kid Trunks
Age: 17
Reppin: Broward County, FLA lack of Viatnamese presence in the industry didn’t intimidate the Members Only affiliate, who’s currently experiencing one of the most prosperous times in his career as ‘Talk’ continues to rack up thousands of streams a day. Despite his ties with Broward County’s prosperous scene, Trunks cannot be defined by the hype and looks to firmly establish his own presence before joining his brothers at the top.

OMB Peezy
Age: 20
Reppin: Mobile, ALEquipped with a distinctive vocal tone and a knack for lyrical realness, this Atlanta-born savage has been consistently proving doubters wrong. His breakthrough single ‘Lay Down’ sits at nearly three million views on YouTube, with a handful of other hits to match.

Yung Bans
Age: 18
Reppin: Atlanta, GAThe BlockBoyz associate has been on the brink of stardom for years, with tracks like ‘Dresser’ and ‘4tspoon’ building a solid foundation on top of notable guest appearances alongside XXXTentacion, Smokepurpp & more. Currently serving time on house arrest stemming from a previous charge, the young rapper looks to take his movement worldwide in the coming months and has his eyes set on the top-spot.
