Tag: Lil Herb
Produced by J. Herd
What you see isn’t always what you get, but this is just what it appears to be — something brand new from Lil Herb. This new joint, “Whatchu Get”, comes to us from Adult Swim and Complex’s The Boondocks: Season 4 mixtape. Those who saw an early track listing for the tape were probably expecting to hear Herbo’s upcoming collaboration with Earl Sweatshirt (which was listed), but you’re going to have to wait a bit for that.
Check out Herb’s “Whatchu Get” below and listen to The Boondocks: Season 4 mixtape, hosted by DJ Drama, Don Cannon and Trendsetter Sense, right here.

Last week, Lil Herb and Lil Reese hit WGCI to chop it up with DJ MoonDawg about a few things including their friendship, Chicago’s music scene and more. Herb also talked a bit about his new project, while Reese revealed that he has collaborations with Young Thug, Plies and Young Scooter on the way.
Check out the full interview above.
Sidenote: A video for “On My Soul” needs to come to happen. Someone tell Herb and Reese to take care of that.
The internet’s been ablaze since Nicki Minaj and Lil Herb’s “Chi-Raq” was released a couple of nights ago and today, Complex caught up with G Herbo to get a few burning questions answered. During their conversation, Herb talks about what it was like to be in the studio with Nicki, how the collaboration came about and speaks on those who think that Nicki giving the song it’s title was a bad idea.
Read an excerpt below:
How long did it take to do your verse?
We was actually in the studio together the whole day. But to record it probably took a few hours. To finish it, write it, make sure it was all good. Have it perfect? Maybe three hours, four hours tops.
Okay, well this is a curveball. Nicki grabs Herb and kicks the Herb/Bibby flow for this new joint called “Chi-Raq.” We told you this years ago, but Herb’s officially out of here now. He pretty much just wrote his own check with this one. Unbelievable.
Directed and Produced by DJ Kenn
The legendary DJ Kenn is a jack of all trades — and wears many hats. Who put this song together? DJ Kenn, that’s who. Who directed the video? That would be Kenn. Who produced the track? Kenn again.
Kenn, who originally hails from Japan, shows some love to his two homes: Chicago and Japan on this new international single, “Chiraq 2 Japan.” He pairs Lil Herb with some of Japan’s finest emcees: Kohh, Seeda and Norikiyo. You may not understand what they’re kicking here, but trust that it’s dope if Kenn stamped them. Check out their US debut with the clip above. Real worldwide moves.
Well, this is a pleasant surprise. Lil Herb’s Welcome To Fazoland, which is one of our favorite projects of the year, is now available without any DJ tags or shouts. This new version of Herb’s debut also includes two bonus records — “Everyday In Chicago” and “At Night” with Herb’s partner-in-crime, Lil Bibby.
Got it? Good. Stream/download the tagless version of Welcome To Fazoland below.
To kick off day one of Red Bull Sound Select’s 4 Days In Austin at SXSW, Thurz, Denitia and Sene and Chicago’s own G Herbo a.k.a. Lil Herb hit the stage before headliner Earl Sweatshirt did so. RBSS recorded the opener’s live sets (dope right?), so you can find audio of Herb’s live set below.
Whether you couldn’t make it down to Austin or just want to hear Herb’s performance again, RBSS has you covered. Listen to Herb’s set below and stay tuned for more live sets from 4 Days In Austin in the coming days.

Now that Welcome To Fazoland has been released, G Herbo offers everyone a look at what it took to put his debut project together. In the first episode of Welcome To Fazoland: Making Of A Classic, Herb talks the meaning of ‘Fazoland’, the story behind his tape and what keeps him going.
