In less than two months, it impressively ascended to this benchmark. Moreover, it has become an anthem for the culture, encouraging listeners everywhere to open up. Peaking in the Top 40 of the Billboard Hot 100, “PTSD” saw G Herbo unite with Lil Uzi Vert and his fellow Chicago luminaries Chance the Rapper and the late Juice WRLD. Given the inclusion of the fallen star, the song also stands out as a fitting tribute to Juice WRLD’s work and impact on not just Chi-Town, but hip-hop at large. Beyond a cumulative total of 70 million streams and views to date, The Fader touted the song as one of “The 10 Best New Rap Songs Right Now” following its release.
Fans and critics continue to celebrate G Herbo and PTSD. In March, it bowed at #7 on the Billboard Top 200. Maintaining this momentum, he unveils a special edition of the record, PTSD [Deluxe], very soon.
Get ready for more as G Herbo cements his place at the forefront of the culture.
On the artwork for PTSD, he re-stitches a bullet-riddled American flag with stars representative of his loved ones who have passed away. “My statement is about PTSD and what everybody goes through in the hood you don’t hear about” says G Herbo. “Even the toughest among us face it. This is my story.”
As a whole, PTSD tours the darkest corners of a psyche damaged by the everlasting cycle of inner city violence as witnessed firsthand by Herbo. On the gruff and gritty “Intro,” he spits with purpose, passion, and power. From the jump, he announces, “I do it for the have-s and have-nots,” as nineties production glistens. The intensity only ramps up from there on “Glass In The Face” [feat. A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie]. A centerpiece of the record, “PTSD” [feat. the Juice WRLD, Chance the Rapper, Lil Uzi Vert] unfolds as an emotionally charged confession, bringing together three of Chicago’s most influential voices—the late Juice WRLD, Chance, and Herbo—and elusive Philadelphia multiplatinum star Lil Uzi Vert. It paints a picture of urban decay and highlights a pervasive theme with the declaration, “Don’t stand too close to me, I got PTSD.” Meanwhile, soul samples bleed into a crossfire between Herbo and 21 Savage on “By Any Means.” Everything culminates on “Intuition” [feat. 2PRETTY
Quietly putting up over 1 billion streams and attracting widespread critical acclaim, G Herbo emerged as one of the Windy City’s most important presences and a voice for hip-hop at large. He hailed from the notorious Chicago neighborhood of “Terror Town” and went on to drop one explosive project after another beginning with Ballin Like I’m Kobe in 2016. In the aftermath, he lifted himself up to the top of the charts with Humble Beast, which vaulted into the Top 25 of the Billboard Top 200 in 2017. He ascended to unparalleled critical peaks on 2018’s Swervo with Southside. It clinched #15 on the Top 200 and bowed in the Top 10 on the Top Rap Albums Chart and Top 10 on the Top R&B Hip-Hop Albums Chart. Receiving praise from HotNewHipHop, HipHopDX, D
