The Making Of YBN Nahmir’s “Rubbin Off The Paint” With Izak | Deconstructed


My favorite part of the beat is probably the ‘SpongeBob’ tag, ‘cause nobody’s expecting the ‘SpongeBob’ voice. Everytime I see reaction videos on YouTube
people be like, “Is that ‘SpongeBob’?” And then the beat comes in and they be like,
“Oh! Okay, cool.” Spongebob: That’s what I thought you said. Now let me offer this as a rebuttal. I started making beats in November, 2016. So I haven’t been making beats that long. But what really inspired me was when I started listening to Playboi Carti and his production by MexikoDro. Like, “This shit hard. I’m gonna try this.” I started uploading type beats, and I keep
getting this following on YouTube that keep pushing me and I was like, “Okay. Let’s go.” That day when I made the “Rubbin Off The Paint”
beat, I was sitting in my room. I was watching ‘South Park,’ and I was
like, “Oh, I haven’t uploaded a beat to my YouTube page in a while. So, let’s do this.” I think I heard the “Magnolia” version
of Playboi Carti with Pierre, so I got inspired. So I was like, “Okay, cool. Alright. Let me try and make something that type of style.” So my friend sent me this loop. And I was like, “Ahh, that shit kinda slow. I’m not really liking the vibe.” So I reversed it, then I pitched it about
300 cents. So it came out like this. So I went to the 808, and I was listening
to “Magnolia,” like I said. It goes pretty simple downstairs. But I wanted to add my own flavor to it. So… So I had two 808s, ‘cause I didn’t want
the beat to be too repetitive. But it’s kinda the same pattern. Cool. We got the melody, we got the 808. That’s the normal clap. Nothing special. Easy, two steps. Hi-hats. It was getting too repetitive, and I wanted
to switch it up a little bit. So I added this kick pattern. After the first eight bars I was like, “Okay,
we need to slow it down ‘cause people are gonna get hype.” So I put this trance effect right here. It slowed down the vibe on the beat. Get ready to the next part. And this was the perfect timing for me to
experiment with the tag. I was watching ‘SpongeBob’ a day or something where he was like, “That’s what I thought you said. Now let me offer this as a rebuttal.” And I was like, “Hold up. That shit would be hard if the beat would drop after that shit!” And it went something like this. So when I uploaded the beat, that shit blew
up. Months after the beat had been blowing up, I was looking around like, what type of people use my beats. So I was finding this kid, so I was playing
it. And then I heard my tag and I heard, “They say Lil Nahmir, where you been at? I’m just passin’ a breeze.” I was like, “Oh shit. This shit hot!” But it was kinda underrated. It had like 1,000 views or something like
that. When I start seeing Chris Brown reposting
it on Instagram, I was like, “Okay, this shit finna get a lot of exposure.” I saw it on WorldStar, it got one million
in a day. Nahmir was also shocked when this song blew
up. Like, “Oh, okay. This shit finna change our lives.”
