G Herbo & Dave East
Here is the third XXL Freshman cypher video of the week. All 10 members of this year's Freshman class have shown off their individual freestyling abilities, and they've now been put up against one another to see how their raps hold up in the cypher format. The first cypher consisted of the strange threesome of Desiigner, Lil Dicky, and Anderson.
G Herbo XXL Freshman Freestyle
XXL is currently rolling out the freestyles for their 2016 freshman class. Looking back on the first week -- some were undeniably fire (Anderson .Paak). Some were divisive beyond belief (Timmy Timmy Timmy Turner). G Herbo was pretty much a lock to deliver a quality freestyle. His is certainly the longest of the 2016 freshman class thus far. He spits methodical bars, opting not to go pedal to the metal like his classmate Lil Dicky, though he certainly could have if he had wanted to. How'd Herbo do? Watch his freestyle above and his freshman interview below.

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".
