Hip-Hop Wired recently sat with G Herbo, aka Lil Herb, who discussed life experiences that inspired his newly released Pistol P Project mixtape. Given the rising rapper’s Chicago roots, he was especially candid while recalling his own experiences with guns.
“I’ve been experiencing gun violence almost all my life,” Herbo explained. Describing firearms as a necessity for self-defense, the Windy City native is all too familiar with the downside and paranoia that comes with being armed in the streets.
Herbo continued, “For me to be doing this, I’m blessed.” Fortunately, his closest friends understand that departing from the street life is integral to any future success.
Hear Herbo speak about the aforementioned topics, the deaths that shaped Pistol P Project and other releases, and much more.
