In honor of "Ballin' Like I'm Kobe," here are Lil Herb and Lil Bibby's top 5 collaborations.
Lil Herb's long-awaited mixtape, Ballin' Like I'm Kobe, arrives today. From what we've heard, it aims to match the incredible artistry we heard on Welcome to Fazoland and Pistol P Project. Last night, to properly anticipate the release, Herb shared a new track, "Gang In This Bitch," with his closest collaborator, Lil Bibby.
We met Herb and Bibby a few years ago, when they looked like boys. Even then, though, they sounded like men. For a couple of years, Chicago had been producing some of the youngest, and most violent, stars in rap. But both Bibby and Herb were something entirely differently. The lyricism and the storytelling were so far beyond their years. Even so, it was impossible to deny that they were living the life of which they rapped. It said as much about the disastrous situation in Chiraq, but as fans, it was exhilarating to see two teenagers putting on an undeniable show of "real" rap.
Here are Bibby and Herb's top 5 collabs since we first heard them over 4 years ago. They've really made some special music together. Now that BLIK is here, it's time for Free Crack 3.
