Flashback: G Herbo On Almost Getting Shot In The Head, Bullet Hole In His Hat

"In February 2018, G Herbo and two other men were arrested after their limousine driver informed police that some of his passengers had weapons. G Herbo was observed in the rear driver-side passenger seat placing a handgun in the seat rear pocket; it was a Fabrique National loaded with rounds designed to penetrate body armor. None of the three had firearm owner's identification cards, and all three were charged with aggravated unlawful use of a weapon."

Shortly after that incident, VladTV posted this:

"In this VladTV Flashback from 2017, G Herbo discusses moving out of Chicago and how being away from home is more conducive to him as an artist.

"Herbo talked about how the negativity surrounding Chicago, particularly the Southside and Eastside respectively, is 'too polluted.' He said that you have to leave the house with the mentality that your life is at stake in Chicago.

"He went on to discuss some early traumatic events in his past, such as witnessing his first murder at 8-years-old as well as a near-death encounter when a bullet missed his head by inches."

"Painting a bleak picture of his hometown throughout, G Herbo encapsulates the pain and lack of hope that has crippled the Windy City for far too long," XXL writes.

Herbo's out of jail.

Pitchfork last fall:

"The Chicago rapper has earned his role as a leader of rap. His latest album recalls the best records of the '00s graced with a singular kind of songwriting that sounds inarguably like the present."
