G Herbo released emotive visuals for the fan-adored track “Take Me Away”, directed by LVTRTOINNE, via The Fader yesterday. Wrought to escape the violence in his hometown, G Herbo reflects on his tumultuous upbringing and desire to escape the chaos that plagues the city of Chicago, on “Take Me Away”. Enjoy this video stream below after the jump.
As told to The Fader, G Herbo explains “‘Take Me Away’ is a special record and video to me, because I saw the video in my head as soon as I laid the song. When you come from the places I come from, you visualize that type of getaway to a place like where we shot the video, but it’s a vision that you never think you’ll ever really touch.”
Now in a place where he’s able to find sanctuary from the streets, G Herbo hopes to inspire the youth of Chicago to aspire to a better life with his N.L.M.B (Never Leave My Brothers) movement. A movement meant to inspire and hold each other accountable. The reflective lyrics found on “Take Me Away” are meant to uplift and inspire those who feel trapped: Lord take me away. To another place. I’m from a place where it ain’t safe to put my gun away. This street shit ain’t fun no more, they took the fun away.
In addition to the release of his “Take Me Away” video, in late-March G Herbo released a commemorative merchandise capsule in conjunction with the release of his Welcome To Fazoland 1.5 EP – celebrating the 3-year anniversary of Welcome To Fazoland. Delivery 2: Welcome To Fazoland, the second installation of G Herbo merch, features 10 premium pieces – two lighters, three t-shirts and five hoodies – available via his website:
