G Herbo delivers the deluxe version to his album ‘PTSD’
G Herbo just upped the stakes with this one!
Normally, when artists release the deluxe versions of their albums, we can expect between one and three additional records to the original — but not G Herbo. He’s doing things completely different by dropping a full length project filled with all new music. Two weeks ago (May 12), he took to his Instagram to announce PTSD Deluxe and fans went belligerent.
With the continued quarantine intact and other catastrophes embedding themselves in these horrific times, G Herbo shines some light by delivering in a way that Chicago artists only know how — effectively. It would behoove you to get in tune with PTSD Deluxe as soon as possible.
Being released earlier this year in February, PTSD is Swervo’s most vulnerable album to date. On March 13, it peaked at number seven on Billboard, taking the Chicago rapper to new heights. A few weeks ago on May 7, the stand-out single “PTSD” (featuring Chicago’s own Chance The Rapper and the late Juice WRLD) reached a new milestone as it earned a gold plaque from the RIAA (Recording Industry Association of America).
In a recent interview with Rolling Stone, Herbo discussed the inspiration behind the album’s title PTSD:
“I always made music based upon my life, and things I am going through. So PTSD just came from years and years of having post-traumatic stress disorder and not being able to deal with it, or even acknowledge the problem. I was clinically diagnosed after years and years of being in the streets and seeing my homies die and being paranoid, having to carry weapons, and having the survivor’s instinct. I have had [PTSD] for well over 10 years of my life.”
Through the 14 new records on PTSD Deluxe, there’s only two lone features: Lil Durk and Lil Uzi. Herb has proven before that his chemistry with each of these two talents, so this was a pretty solid move.
Chicago is very proud of G Herbo and his accomplishments in the industry. It’s most certainly a great look for the city. Press play on PTSD Deluxe below and wake those that may be still snoozing!
