G Herbo (previously known as Lil Herb), an American rapper from Chicago, was born Herbert Randall Wright III on October 8, 1995.
The Machine Entertainment Group represents G Herbo. He has put out the mixtapes Ballin Like I’m Kobe (2015), Welcome to Fazoland (2014), Pistol P Project (2014), and Strictly 4 My Fans (2016). His first major-label release on Epic Records, Swervo (2018), a joint album with music producer Southside, came out the same year as his debut album, Humble Beast. His fourth and fifth studio albums, 25 (2021) and Survivor’s Remorse (2022), as well as his third studio album, PTSD (2020), all debuted in the top ten on the Billboard 200 upon release. 25 was his first venture with Republic Records.
G Herbo Early life
Illinois’s Chicago is where Wright was raised. He attended Hyde Park Academy High School and left when he was 16 years old. Meek Mill, Jeezy, Gucci Mane, Yo Gotti, and Lil Wayne were some of his musical influences. He is good friends with Lil Bibby, another rapper with whom he has worked on a number of songs. Although the initials N.L.M.B. are also currently used by the gang to stand for “Never Leave My Brothers” and “No Limit Muskegon Boys,” both musicians are connected to the family N.L.M.B., which was initially formed by the union of No Limit, a renegade faction of the Almighty Black P. Stone Nation, and the Muskegon Boyz. According to Wright, N.L.M.B. is more of a “brotherhood” than a club.

Fazon Robinson, one of Herbo’s pals who was among the first killed by gun violence in Chicago, is remembered in the mixtape’s name. Broad critical appreciation was given to Welcome to Fazoland, with Fader noting that “lyrical bankruptcy has remained one of drill’s most frequent criticisms since it rose to prominence a few years ago; Herb’s way with words defies the stereotype.”

G Herbo Background
Formerly known as Lil Herb, drill artist G Herbo of Chicago shares his experiences in a rough-hewn, urgent, and frequently painful manner. He represents the South Shore district of his city, more especially the Terror Town neighborhood. He made his breakthrough in 2014 with Welcome to Fazoland and then made waves on the Billboard 200 with Humble Beast and Swervo. Following albums like 2020’s PTSD, 2021’s 25, and 2022’s Survivor’s Remorse, all of which debuted in the Top Ten, G Herbo continued his run of mainstream success.
Active since the early 2010s, the rapper, real name Herbert Wright III, had an appearance on two songs from Lil Bibby’s 2013 album Free Crack. The next year, he released his first two mixtapes, Welcome to Fazoland and Pistol P Project, and Common, Young Chop, and Earl Sweatshirt sought him out for verses. After that, Wright joined Cinematic Music Group, where he made his debut in 2015 with the mixtape Ballin Like I’m Kobe, which was named in honor of a friend who had been killed two years earlier.
In the year after, Wright had an appearance on the Lil Yachty song “Up Next 3.” His full-length studio album, Humble Beast, was released in 2017, and it includes the singles “Red Snow,” “I Like,” and “Everything.” The album’s top position on the Billboard 200 was barely outside the Top 20. An additional year passed before the album’s deluxe edition was released, which included fellow Chicago emcee Chance the Rapper on “Everything (Remix).”
Swervo (Epic Records), a joint project between Atlanta trap producer Southside and G Herbo from 2018, included guest features from Young Thug, 21 Savage, Chief Keef, and others. Swervo debuted at number 15 on the Billboard 200 upon its release. The third album Still Swervin, which debuted in February just outside the Top 40, and the album Sessions in December served as the year’s bookends. Herbo released PTSD, his fourth studio album, in February 2020. Lil Uzi Vert, Polo G, Juice WRLD, A Boogie wit da Hoodie, and many other celebrities made cameo appearances on the star-studded album, which reached at number seven on the Billboard Top 200 chart.
Herbo claimed that the subject of the album was mostly inspired by the therapy sessions he took in an effort to make sense of his tumultuous background. He and his accomplices were charged with several federal fraud offenses in December of that year, which he refuted later in the month in the stand-alone song “Statement.” Herbo put out a number of singles in the first quarter of 2021, including “All Black,” “Really Like That,” and “Break Yoself,” some of which ended up on fourth studio album 25, 25. 25 was a July 2021 release that was given the name based on Herbo’s age at the time of release. It debuted at number five on the Billboard Top 200 chart.
Herbo made appearances on Gunna and King Von’s chart-topping hits in 2022, as well as on the lead singles “Me, Myself & I” and “Blues” with A Boogie wit da Hoodie, both of which were featured on Herbo’s Survivor’s Remorse, his fifth studio album. Survivor’s Remorse: A Side and the companion B Side were both released on October 7, 2022, and three days later, respectively. The two-part album, which debuted at number nine on the Billboard charts, featured features from Offset, Gunna, Kodak Black, and many other artists in addition to the special guest already mentioned. In April 2023, Yung Bleu and Murda Beatz released “Raining,” a joint effort.
G Herbo Personal life
2018 saw the birth of Wright’s baby from his relationship with Ariana Fletcher. He is engaged to Taina Williams, the rapper Fabolous’ stepdaughter, as of December 2020. She gave birth to their first child, a son, on May 27, 2021.
G Herbo Legal issues
Wright and two other men were detained in February 2018 after their limo driver reported to the police that some of his passengers were armed. Wright was seen stowing a Fabrique National revolver in the seatback pocket of the rear driver-side passenger seat. Wright and the other two males were charged with aggravated unlawful use of a weapon, a felony under the Illinois Compiled Statutes, even though none of them had Illinois firearm owner’s identity cards. Wright was given two years of probation after entering a guilty plea to a misdemeanor charge of improper use of a weapon in 2019.
On April 19, 2019, Wright was detained in Atlanta on charges of simple violence following an alleged violent fight with Ariana “Ari” Fletcher, the mother of his kid. On Thursday, April 18, Fletcher posted her experience on Instagram, saying, “He beat the fuck out of me in front of my son, knocked my door down to get in my house because I wouldn’t let him in. He then drove off with my son after taking him outside to meet his pals, stole all of my knives, smashed my phone, locked me inside, and beat the hell out of me once again.
She claimed there were visible evidence of assault on her body as well, including a black eye, as well as scrapes, cuts, and bruises all over. On $2,000 bond, Wright was released one week later. After being freed, he went live on Instagram to talk about the altercation with Fletcher. Herbo said that Fletcher had stolen jewels from his mother’s home during the video session. He said, “I’ve been quiet all this time,” in more detail. I’m not going to file an insurance claim or try to lock you up. Nothing. You instructed me to travel to Atlanta to retrieve the jewels.
In a federal court in Massachusetts on December 2, 2020, Wright and several associates, including Chicago rapper Joe “Joe Rodeo” Williams, promoter and manager Antonio “T-Glo” Strong, and alleged co-conspirators Steven Hayes Jr., Demario Sorrells, and Terrence Bender, were indicted on 14 federal charges, including wire fraud and aggravated identity theft. Allegations were made that Wright and his accomplices used stolen identification to pay for extravagant trips, purchase designer dogs, rent opulent properties in Jamaica, and hire private planes. Millions of dollars are allegedly involved in the fraud during a four-year period beginning in 2016.
On July 28, 2023, Wright entered a guilty plea and agreed to pay a $140,000 fine in federal court in Springfield, Massachusetts for conspiring to commit wire fraud and making false claims. In return, the prosecutors dismissed a number of serious identity theft charges.
G Herbo Charity
2018 saw Wright assist to the renovation of Anthony Overton Elementary School, a former elementary school in Chicago. Wright wanted to put tools in this structure that would aid young individuals who desire to be musicians. Additionally, he tried to include free sports and programs to occupy kids and keep them away from the streets.
Swervin’ Through Stress, a project that offers Black teenagers therapeutic options to better their mental health through a 12-week course, was introduced by Wright in July 2020. His complex post-traumatic stress disorder, which resulted from prior therapy sessions, as well as his own experiences and those of others in his community served as inspiration for the project. He continued, “I don’t want to be that guy who has all the power to transform my city, my neighborhood, and the children while doing nothing with it. That is why being honest is so essential to me.
