YBN Almighty Jay is apparently YBN no more. According to an Instagram post from the 21-year-old rapper, he will now be known as simply Almighty Jay. The move comes shortly after he and crewmate YBN Nahmir got into it on social media, although Jay says it’s something he’s been working on for awhile.

“I BEEN GOING BACK AND FORWARD WITH MY LABEL FOR MONTHS TRYNA GET THIS ‘YBN’ SHIT OFF MY NAME ON SOCIAL MEDIA,” he wrote. “I’M ALMIGHTY JAY!”

Almighty Jay and YBN Nahmir had a heated exchange earlier this week that culminated with the promise of physical violence — although they couldn’t decide on a meeting place.

“He already know I’m gonna beat his ass,” Jay said in an Instagram video. “I might as well get paid to beat his ass and I want to do it in front of everybody. I’m the one trying to make the fight happen, how am I nervous? You don’t know how bad I want it to happen. You thin as hell, you know I’ma punch a hole through your ass.”

Nahmir replied, “I been tryna beat your ass, just like I beat your mans and them up. When y’all see cuz hurt with all them black eyes, n-ggas ain’t hit cuz with bottles this time. Tell n-ggas to drop a location in Houston we gon’ pop out.”

On Tuesday (June 8), Akademiks unearthed a clip of Almighty Jay discussing what led to their initial beef — money.

“So like two years ago, this little beef between me … an incident end up like, occurring with some n-ggas I used to be cool with,” he says in the clip. “They end up doing something and Nahmir end up gettin’ caught up in it somehow. Mind you, I ain’t cool with these n-ggas no more now that the incident has happened.

“I ended up paying $30,000 and Nahmir ended up paying $10,000. A couple months go by and me and him ain’t talk.”
