G Herbo is mourning the loss of his close friend who was killed in a Chicago barbershop last week. Gregory Jackson III, also known as “Lil Greg,” was fatally shot in the face on Jan. 28. He was later pronounced dead at Stroger Hospital. On Tuesday (Feb. 2), Christopher Mosley was arrested in connection with the deadly shooting.

On Thursday (Feb. 4), the PTSD emcee took to Instagram to share an emotional tribute to his late childhood friend. He spoke about how they grew up together and shared photos that the two had taken in their younger days.

“SHORTY ALL I KNOW IS YOU!!” G Herbo captioned the post. “FROM THE FUCKING CRADLE 2 THE GRAVE LITERALLY! AS I’M WRITING THIS CAPTION, TWIN I AIN’T EVEN DROPPING TEARS CUZ 4 WHAT? WE ALWAYS BEEN STRONGER TOGETHER & YOU STILL WITH ME RIGHT NOW.. I FEEL YOU! I DREAMT ABOUT YOU IMMEDIATELY & WHEN I DID, I DIDN’T EVEN UNDERSTAND. IT TOOK ME A COUPLE DAYS & I’M STILL UNDERSTANDING MORE, BUT RN I GET A CLEARER PICTURE...”

He then sent birthday wishes to Jackson and promised him that he would look after his two children. “BUT I’M SAYING ALL THIS SHIT TO SAY HAPPY BIRTHDAY,” the “Swervo” rapper continued. “HAPPY BIRTHRITE 2 MY LIL BABY BROTHER MAN!! #WATER A N*GGA SO PURE I JUST NAMED HIM WATER... YOU’LL NEVER BE GONE, YOU’LL NEVER BE FORGOTTEN CUZ IK I’M STAYING IN THIS SHIT 10 TOES DOWN JUST OFF THE STRENGTH OF YOU.”

“YOU LIVE THRU ME! I LOVE YOU & THEMM 2 LIL N*GGAS,” G Herbo added. “CMON MANN YOU KNOW THEY A NEVER GO WITHOUT!! YOU MADE SURE THEY DON’T, SO IMA MAKE SURE THEY WON’T.”
