It’s been a big year for G Herbo. In September of last year, the Chicago rapper dropped his debut studio album Humble Beast to positive reviews lauding his lyrics which were full of stark imagery and introspection. But earlier this year Herbo really hit his stride when he posted a video of himself free styling to the beat from Three 6 Mafia’s “Who Run It.”
He simultaneously showcased his talent, reintroduced the world to the track, secured his place as a knowledgable and skilled lyricist who knows his history, and of course kicked off a huge trend in rap. Everyone from A$AP Rocky to Lil Yachty and Trippie Redd to Young M.A dropped their own freestyles—even the members of Three 6 Mafia did their own remixes after G Herbo brought the song back.
G Herbo was undeniable, and he kept that momentum with his sophomore album, a collab with Southside, Swervo. Swervo, which dropped in July of this year, told a different story and brought a different energy than Humble Beast, told from the perspective of a more rash and hardened alter ego. Herbo has the range, but does he enjoy being Swervo or Humble more? We put him to the ultimate test—the Lie Detector test—to find out.
“Hmmm…It’s like a fifty-fifty chance…” he starts off.
Watch more to see if he’s ever spent $50,000 at a strip club, if he thinks Juice WRLD is bigger than Michael Jackson, and if he’d be upset if his son smoked weed at the age he started smoking weed.
