At just nineteen years old, Herbert Wright has built quite the name of himself. The Chicago native, who goes by the name G Herbo (formerly Lil Herb), has worked with the likes of Nicki Minaj and Chance The Rapper, amongst others.
Review: Lil Herb's "Ballin Like I'm Kobe"
Review: Lil Herb's "Ballin Like I'm Kobe" Oct 3, 2015 at 09:38am
Is there anything more startling than hearing a 19 year old kid saying that he doesn't fear death because he's "happy for all the years [he] got to see"? Lil Herb's still around 57 years shy of the average male life expectancy in the U.S., but you don't need to be a super-sleuth to figure out why optimism isn't his strong suit. Hell, you barely even have to listen to his music.

It's everyone's favorite day of the week. Friday. While we stare at the clock for the next two or three hours and count down every single second until the work day (/school day) finishes, we've rounded up our favorite Soundcloud releases from the past week for the weekly Staff Picks playlist.

Lil Bibby Defends Slim Jesus Against Haters
Lil Bibby Defends Slim Jesus Against Haters Sep 13, 2015 at 10:39pm
Slim Jesus is the latest viral rap sensation, and it's easy to see why -- for one, he's named Slim Jesus. It's also not every day you see a white teenager from Ohio making drill music. Though Slim is apparently 18, he looks about 13, and seeing him and his similarly young looking crew toting heavy artillery in the "Drill Time" music video is pretty shocking. As you might expect, the viral video has caused some controversy.

Samples Of The Week: August 14 Aug 14, 2014 at 10:03am
When hip-hop began, samples were all that DJs and producers had to construct instrumental tracks with. They'd dig through crates of vinyl trying to find isolated drum breaks, melodies or vocals that they could repurpose for use in hip-hop music. Today, sampling has become less common, but a choice sample can still push a track from lukewarm to hot faster than you can say "uh-huh honey".
