G Herbo is a busy man. The Chicago native links with producer Harry Fraud for “O.W.D.” Over a soul-churning sample, Herbo reflects on his humble beginnings.
“I’m that nigga that grew up in all apartment buildings/With my cousins and the rest my grandmama children/I was the youngest, this was way before I had a sibling/’Member watchin’ water from the rain leaking through the ceiling/’Member watchin’ roaches, rats run f through the kitchen/And my kitchen eased f chicken, you don’t know the feeling,” he raps.
The combination Harry Fraud’s wonderful production and Herbo’s heartfelt lyrics make “O.W.D.” a strong record. Hopefully this will be the first many collaborations between the two artists.
The former XXL Freshman is a machine. He released his Strictly 4 My Fans mixtape last December and followed that up with his Welcome to Fazoland 1.5 EP in March. He’s currently gearing up to drop a few projects this year. Last month Herb revealed that his long-awaited debut album, titled Humble Beast, is coming this summer. He also stated that he’s collaborating with his longtime friend Lil Bibby for a project called No Limitations. Plus he’s supposed to be dropping a collab project with Southside called Swervo. It’s looking like a big year for Herbo.
