When he first emerged on the scene, G Herbo (then Lil Herb) was quickly lumped into Chicago's drill movement. His sometimes confrontational style and gritty subject matter does align with the genre in some respects, but when we spoke to Herb, he clarified that he's "far from drill rap".

Bibby was rapping first, and Herb got his start by trading raps with Bibby via brief cell phone video clips and recording memos. It was only a matter of time before they hit the studio together...
