G Herbo is one of my favourite rappers under 30. Emerging from Chicago’s Drill scene as “Lil Herb” alongside close friend Lil Bibby and Lil Reese, his evolution has seen him merge with the cities more soulful artists, including collaborations with Chance the Rapper and Common.
In Summer 2018, Viper linked up with G Herbo in his hometown to discuss his project Swervo, produced by Southside. We also spoke on his habit of going viral on instagram, velvet durags and growing from Lil Herb to G Herbo.
