There are a few rappers that could claim the title of Best Rapper Alive. However, G Herbo feels that he meets the criteria. The Chicago native emerged as a lyrical giant in the city’s drill scene, especially when he showed out with Lil Bibby. However, he’s matured since then while sharpening his lyrical sword. These days, it seems like his new competition is the greats that came before him. G Herbo shared a message on Instagram that read, “I really feel like I’m the best rapper alive nbs.”
After nearly a decade in the rap game, perhaps, G Herbo has a case behind his statement. Though some would feel otherwise, Herbo’s maintained a consistent stream of music over the past few years. Each effort showcased the depth of his artistry. Projects like PTSD and 25, specifically, were met with acclaim from both fans and critics. Releases like these made many feel as though he stepped things up since releasing joint projects with Southside.
Is G Herbo Dropping A New Album?
G Herbo came through with his last body of work, Survivor’s Remorse last year, which boasted appearances from Jeremih, Future, Offset, Benny The Butcher, and more. Though he continues to ride high off of the release, his recent claim on Instagram seems to be a strong indication that he’s cooking something up. After all, why else would G Herbo publicly claim to be the “best rapper alive” if he doesn’t have another project up his sleeve to prove it?
He closed out 2022 on a rather quiet note. Still, the Chicago rapper came through last month with his first drop of the year. Herb teamed up with Murda Beatz and Yung Bleu for the single, “Raining.” However, he’s currently on the road alongside Future for the One Big Party tour, so if he does have a new album on the way, it’ll likely arrive after he wraps up his obligations. Hopefully, another single drops soon. For now, check out what G Herbo had to say above. Do you think G Herbo belongs in the GOAT conversation? Let us know in the comment section below.
