'Humble Beast' arrives in September.
It was back in April that the young emcee stopped by to let us know that Humble Beast was at least 70 to 75 percent complete.
Now, he has pegged the date September 15th for the project's official arrival, set to feature production from the likes of No ID, Da Internz, the previously-credited Southside, and London on the Track.
Since cementing his prominence when he debuted as a XXL Freshman in 2016’s Class, G Herbo has enticed patient fans with the long-awaited arrival of his Humble Beast, citing a certain degree of perfectionism as a reason for its delay.
"My album is taking so long because it’s gon’ be perfect,” he told XXL Magazine earlier in the month. “I want my album to put you in the mind of [JAY-Z’s] Reasonable Doubt and [Nas’] Illmatic. That’s what I want my album to resemble, so it’s gon’ take time. You can’t rush it.”
His sentiments mirror the same reverence that he projected during his visit with us before the summer got underway as he referred to Humble Beast as his “main focus,” “prized possession,” and his “baby.”
The release will soon follow with a release party and concert on September 16th as he takes to the stage in New Orleans.
In addition to Humble Beast, Herbo previously teased two upcoming joint albums with producer Southside and best friend and frequent collaborator Lil Bibby, respectively.
Titled Swervo and No Limitations, respectively, we naturally expect these efforts to arrive behind the frenzy that is Humble Beast.
