Lil Herb and Lil Bibby have been bubbling for a while now in the Chiraq guns flashing, rap-as-inferno lane, but I have never written about them due to negative association stemming from my aversion to all Bibby’s dating back to Mike (and maybe Henry). I’ve been watching a lot of NWA and Eazy E lately and it’s not hard to make the connections between a crumbling infrastructure, gang epidemic, and weak educational system and this sort of brutal fuck-the-world rap. Humor me, I am no sociologist. Or you can just listen to the list of the dead that Herb spits out in the first 50 seconds. That is a too many dead people to know as a teenager.
Fake Shore Drive made an excellent compilation of Herb and Bibby below the jump that should download if you’re into that sort of thing.
