This is our story...

LA-via-San Antonio artist, Brittney Scott, aka @B666S (B6 for short), became a cultural icon by literally making a culture out of icons. That wave of ms paint avis which all your favorite DJs repped over the last few years is hers.

She, along with her crew of self-made internet celebs, Yung Klout Gang (boytweetsworld, lina, franko, mphd, celebates, the holy mountain, and chippy) make up an ongoing and unfiltered stream of consciousness snapshot of the current American club scene.

YKG picked up where Carles left off. As influencers of lingo (“wait,” “literal,” “same,” “basic,” “thot,” etc. can all be traced back to them) and representatives of the current alt culture, they’ve created their own URL world that’s ignorant yet self aware, self promoting yet self deprecating, ironic yet earnest and depressed yet hopeful.

Art reflects the culture of its time, and YKG’s B6 is EDM’s Andy Warhol.

Check our chat with the rising visual artist below, following the debut of her virtual art gallery, along with a playlist of her favorite turn up jams:

Nest HQ: suppp
Brittney: hallo
Nest HQ: how are u doing today

Brittney: sup tho
Nest HQ: yeah so this exhibit is amazing
Brittney: thank you!!
Nest HQ: been digging your stuff since ykg
Brittney: ^__^
Brittney: thank u
Brittney: that makes me so happy
Nest HQ: also did ykg break up? i know you guys still hang
Brittney: mm, we all live in diff places and wanna do diff things. i guess ultimately the main thing we had in common was partying. i had hopes of ykg being something of an “artist collective” but idk, we all all over the place
Brittney: ya we do still hang, we do support each other and hopefully can come together to build things eventually
Nest HQ: i think you’re all talented in your own ways. and your guys relentless self promotion is amazing
Nest HQ: kinda like a reflection of kids just trynna survive in weird times
Brittney: lol ya totally
Brittney: the self promo i feel is organic
Brittney: ppl have just latched on lol
Brittney: which im down for
Brittney: i like that we are a voice for something
Nest HQ: as far as the lingo and stuff, how do you feel about seeing it in other circles? stuff like “same” on snapbacks, “literal” everywhere etc.
Brittney: we were involved in some of that happening
Brittney: outside stuff, its flattering but also lame cos like we all wanted that to be produced by us
Brittney: i’ve been so frustrated by it cos i rly tried to push for things like that and like to build us as a brand
Nest HQ: yeah
Nest HQ: its a strong one
Brittney: its crazy
Nest HQ: from scratch
Brittney: we all meet people who have adopted the brand and don’t even know it was built by us
Brittney: its funny
Nest HQ: the fact that you’ve built an online merch thing that ppl are interested in just on your own is sick
Brittney: thank u
Brittney: kinda unreal 2 me
Nest HQ: hows it been adjusting to randos over the years, both url and irl
Brittney: its weird. everything is weird. cos like, i don’t think of myself as a “thing.” i know that humans like to idolize things but like, W H Y
