Chicago street legend G Herbo is pulling no punches in 2022.
Sharing Side A of his double album, Survivor’s Remorse on Friday (Oct. 7), the first section of Herbo’s new LP proved to be both impressive and immersive. Extending his latest collection of hard-hitting street cuts on Side B (Oct. 10), the complete LP features high-octane guests in Offset, Benny The Butcher, Conway The Machine, Gunna, Young Thug and more.
Simply put, the Chi-Town spitter is in his bag on his both sides of Survivor Remorse. The record thrives off the strength of its quintessential, narrative-driven allure. Living as a “Survivor” of his environment and having “Remorse” for his fallen friends and family, Herbo seems to be in an artistic place he knows all too well.
Previously rolling out the project with his latest track “Blues” with Future on Sept. 16, the cash-inspired cut sees Herbo ride the mellow beat with gritty bars about his financial gains over the last few years, as he and the Freebandz head honcho trade off verses. Future’s contribution mainly hears him speak on how his decade-long legacy continues to thrive.
The album’s lead single, “Me, Myself and I, marked the third time A Boogie wit da Hoodie and Herbo have teamed up in their careers. It’s also the second single Herbo has dropped in 2022 — sharing “Locked In” which proved to be a touching tribute to his late brother.
My heart so big, sometimes I cry over street shit
Nowadays it’s me, myself and I
‘Cause I’m the only person that really cares if I don’t
And I tried to talk to God but I’m afraid ’cause we ain’t spoke in so long
He’ll probably think I only need shit“Me, Myself and I” – G Herbo and A Boogie wit da Hoodie
“Me, Myself and I” gives both stars a chance to shine. A Boogie starts off a melodic chorus discussing how he’s on a lane of his own, as Herb follows up by contemplating the demons and struggles he has been facing since 25.
Its visual further displays the malleability that both artists possess — keeping things versatile by changing heights, camera angles and vivid imagery that resoundingly supports the message conveyed by Boogie and Herbo.
While Survivor’s Remorse settles into rotation, it’s evident that Herbo packed all his innermost thoughts, feelings and fears into it.
