Since 2012 when the drill scene emerged in Chicago (and eventually took over the rap game) the artist formerly known as Lil Herb has been on a constant rise to success while putting on heavy for his city. When he and fellow Chicago artist Lil Bibby dropped their legendary collab “Kill Shit” 9 years ago, it was safe to assume back then that G Herbo would be something special. At this point in time, if you’re reading this and still sleeping on the Machine Ent. rapper, you should be ashamed of yourself. However, It’s never too late to join the party as Herbo unleashes his fourth studio album 25.

For the album’s announcement, a number of special fans were elated to have received a special package from G Herbo himself that prompted them to deliver the news. It included a large poster of the album cover and a heartfelt thank you letter that read: “It’s because of fans like you I’m where I am today, and I wanted to have you be a part of this moment. Help me announce my album 25 by sharing a photo of your poster on all of your social media channels. Make sure to tag me in the post and use the hashtag #GHerbo25 so I can repost you.”

This was one of the dopest album rollouts in a long time simply because of its authenticity and the connection Herbo has with his biggest fans.

Laced with a total of 16 records and three bonus tracks, G Herbo tapped on some of the game’s hottest artists right now: Polo G, Lol Tjay, 21 Savage, Gunna, Rowdy Rebel and more.

It is truly a great feeling to see one of Chicago’s own continuing to shine in every way possible and cementing his legacy. Tap in to 25 right now.
