The A3C Festival has always brought some of the best performances in Hip-Hop. As usual, we have some of the most notable names in the industry coming to perform. The hottest artists to grab a microphone are preparing to make their way to Atlanta. One of those artists is G Herbo. The Chicago native has been blazing his own trail since 2014, when he released his debut mixtape, Welcome to Fazoland.Since his debut, G Herbo has stayed consistent with releases, following his Welcome to Fazoland debut with Pistol P Project. His latest project, Ballin Like I’m Kobe was released in 2015, only a few months after he made the XXL Freshman along with Fetty Wap, Dej Loaf, and K Camp. His XXL Freshman accolade and his critically acclaimed mixtapes led to him joining to Cinematic Music Group, where he is currently signed. With this deal, Herbo joins the ranks of Big KRIT, Smoke DZA, and Joey Bada$$ who recently released a song together, titled “Lord Knows.” During this pivotal time in his career, he decided to change his name from Lil Herb to the current moniker, G Herbo.
Herbo has a unique story and he tells it though his music. The first track from his Ballin Like I’m Kobe tape, “Ls,” gives a glimpse into some of the obstacles he has overcome to get to where he is. His style and flows caught the attention of Drake, who called him, and his long time friend and fellow rapper, Lil Bibby “the future”early in his career. Herbo has proved to be a key player in the development in the Chicago drill sound, but does not limit himself to just that one style of rap. Herbo has been featured on tracks with many artists which allows him to showcase his versatility.Now that he is signed, Herbo is now working on getting his debut album, Humble Beast out before 2016 is over. Make sure you get to this year's A3C Festival & Conference to see G Herbo perform. You may even get to hear some new material from the album.
