19-year old Lil Herb signs a record deal.
Lil Herb, who know officially goes by the name is G Herbo, has signed a deal with Cinematic Music Group. Under the structure of the deal he will still operate primarily out of his 150 Dream Team imprint. 19-year old Herbo joins a Cinematic roster that already boasts such artists as Mick Jenkins, Big KRIT, Joey Bada$$, and Smoke DZA.
"I think with Herb, I feel like I’m walking the streets of Chicago with him when I listen to him," Cinematic founder Jonny Shipes told XXL. "Aside from him being a really dope rapper, storyteller and vivid painter, the youth fucks with him super hard."
According to Shipes, Ballin Like I'm Kobe will drop in the near future, with Herbo's debut album following in 2016.
“We’re putting out Ballin’ Like I’m Kobe mixtape, latest in October but it’s probably coming in September,” said Shipes. "Then he’s going to go on The Smokers Club Tour this fall. So like 30-40 cities this fall. Then next year we will put out his debut album.”
