G-Herbo during an interview with Montreality

Chicago drill rapper G Herbo revealed plans for a full album with fellow south side rapper and life-long friend Lil Bibby in a video interview with Montreality on Wednesday (Jan. 29).  

“It’s just a matter of getting in the same place at the same time,” he says. “We don't wanna put a mix tape out cause our fans been waiting, so we gon' drop a album - a real LP No Limitations.”

Herbo explains that the two have about 30 or 40 unreleased songs together, dating as far back as 2013, but aside from that, there are no other specific details on the joint project's pending drop. 

The pair met as kids at a youth center in South Shore, and have been making music together (officially) since 2012’s “Kill Shit,” which came out when the two were still teenagers. “That’s my big brother. That’s one of the first n---as I started hanging out with from my neighborhood,” Hebro says.

The potential turn-around on a new album would be relatively quick for Herbo, who put out the critically acclaimed Humble Beast album in September. This past spring Bibby also dropped his own project FC3 the Epilogue, an EP that featured Herbo, as well as a feature from Future.

While Herbo’s sound is largely considered drill with hi-hat-heavy beats, the rapper told Complex in 2015 that his sound is distinct from the genre, because of his more “soulful” beats and lyrics that focus on real life stories, citing rappers like Nas and Jadakiss. And in the Montreality interview, he also separated himself from mumble rap, saying “I don't know what the fuck mumble rap is honestly, that's weird to me -- it's just music.”

The full interview touches on everything from the rapper's romantic side, his favorite cartoons, and the state of rap and hip-hop today.
