Video: YNW BSlime – “Nightmares” ft. Trippie Redd (Prod. by Chopsquad DJ)
The Musical Prodigy Shares an Emotional Video as He Prays For His Brother’s Release From Prison
“His debut is sure to have middle school dances on smash.” – Pitchfork
“12-year-old rapper YNW BSlime didn’t drop his first song until July 2019 with ‘Hot Sauce,’ but the young artist’s profile is already on the rise” – Genius
“At just 12 years old, Florida rapper YNW BSlime is already making waves. The younger brother of YNW Melly stands out through his youthful voice and good sense of melody, putting together bright, thumping songs about the streets, getting money and the girls on his mind.” – XXL
“One thing that you’ll pick up right off the bat is that this kid has a solid voice. Like his older brother, YNW BSlime knows how to utilize the depth of his vocals to truly come across as a melody king.” – HotNewHipHop
He’s just 13-years-old, but YNW BSlime has a veteran’s knack for emotional expression. Working through the troubles that keep him up at night, BSlime shares “Nightmares,” his new video single. Emoting atop an intricate beat from Chopsquad DJ, BSlime mourns his close friends who he lost to gun violence, laments that his brother YNW Melly’s legal situation keeps them apart, and tries to quiet his troubled thoughts: “So much crazy thoughts in my brain, I’m too young to be this stressed,” sings BSlime.
The song features a guest appearance from Trippie Redd, who shouts “Free Melly” and promises revenge against anyone who does him wrong. Directed by Jon J, the video reflects BSlime’s paranoid state of mind, as the young artist dresses up in a trench coat like an old school private eye as he tries to get to the root of his trauma.
“Nightmares” is the latest in a long line of quality videos from the Florida native. Last month, BSlime shared the adventurous video for the dancehall-inflected “One Step,” (1.7 million views), which features vocals from YNW Melly. He kicked off BSlime season this summer with the none-too-serious “Freestyle LOL” (3.3 million YouTube views), before dramatizing his brother’s trial in the plaintive “Just Wait” (1 million views) and romancing his bae in the sweet “Luv U.“ These new singles will all appear on Slime Fever, BSlime’s upcoming project, and the follow-up to his debut BABY GOAT,
YNW BSlime was born to make music, earning 1 million plays in less than 24 hours with his first-ever single “Hot Sauce” in 2019. The budding star built a massive following on YouTube and SoundCloud, generating nearly 82 million domestic streams and 35 million video views in the first 12 months of his career, off the strength of follow-up hits like “Slime Dreams” (21.6 million streams on Spotify). Released last winter, BABY GOAT racked up over 63 million streams, earned positive notes in Pitchfork and HotNewHipHop and featured appearances from Melly and Lil Tjay.
When he’s not making music, BSlime loves to play basketball, eat ice cream, and dominate Fortnite on his XBox. Stay tuned for Slime Fever, coming very soon…BSlime season is approaching.
