When G Herbo steps to the mic, you already know what’s coming — unflinching reflections and hard-hitting street bars. It’s part of what makes him such an electrifying presence on the Chicago scene and beyond. Now, Herbo has come through to keep his blade sharp on “Street Shit,” a From The Block performance that finds him letting fly a freestyle over an aggressive instrumental.
“Lost lil bro ain’t been myself, grab that 40 off the shelf,” he raps, his cadence gravelly. “Ain’t had therapy to help, been off liquor for my health / play the cards that I been dealt.” While it’s lacking the typical song structure, fans will appreciate the extended barrage of bars Herbo delivers here, a promising sign for his future music to come.
