With only a few hours left to go until G Herbo unleashes his new project 25, he preps fans for what is to come with one last offering. Today (July 1), REVOLT presents the Chicago rapper’s world premiere of “I Don’t Wanna Die,” a raw representation of the realness he battles every day. Set in all black and white, the brand new Child-directed visual follows Herbo through his city as he delivers his truth-filled words:
Wanna see my life’s a movie, press play bitch/ The street ain’t checkers, it’s a chess game now let’s play/ War time, blazing daily I must say but we was brave/ Killed my n***a we back out the next day, and I ain’t even hesitate
G Herbo made sure to take some time to delve deeper into his intention behind the new video, which purposefully shows a world of the pain that comes with life in the streets. “My video ‘I Don’t Wanna Die’ is speaking of change,” he tells REVOLT. “It shows a world of pain and suffering violence to let you know just how real my life is and where I come from. It’s not fun! It’s not a game! People are dying all around so we gotta all wake up and realize it’s a lot to live for. We have to value life.”
These days, G Herbo has a lot to be excited about and celebrate. Aside from the new project release, he also very recently welcomed his new baby boy Essex William Wright with his lady Taina. He also has been in a collaborative spirit this year, taking part in visuals like “2face” with Young Nudy and “Bend Never Fold” with Tee Grizzley.
