True to its title, 25 sees G Herbo celebrating his 25th year around the sun and reflecting on everything he’s learned along the way. He tapped a number of friends to join him in partying up, too, like fellow Chicago rapper Polo G and and Brooklyn MC Lil Tjay who appear on “Cry No More,” as well as 21 Savage who raps with a view on “T.O.P.”
Also joining G Herbo on 25 are Atlanta star Gunna and Australian rapper Kid Laroi on “You Can’t”, GS9 crew member Rowdy Rebel on “Drill”, and even his young son Yosohn with a cameo on “Cold World”.
Earlier this week, G Herbo hyped up his album with a lengthy statement on Instagram. “I GOT WAY IN THE STREETS SO YOUNG I PUT THE HOOD ON MY BACK B4 I TURNED 18! I TOOK ALL THAT CAME WITH THIS LIFESTYLE THE GOOD THE BAD & THE UGLY BUT I NEVER STOPPED LOVING IT,” it reads. “I SAW MY FIRST MILLION OFF OF MY STRUGGLE & MY TRAUMA @ 21 I HAD ALREADY BLEW A M IN THE STREETS B4 THAT THO! I LOST MORE THAN I EVER GAINED BEING IN THE STREETS & STILL NEVER COMPLAINED… NOW THAT I TURNED #25 I JUST GREW A LIL WISER BUT IM STILL JUST AS PASSIONATE ABOUT THIS SHIT & EVERYTHING I BELIEVE IN!

SHOUT OUT TO EVERY SINGLE SOUL THAT HELPED ME WITH THIS ALBUM & LONG LIVE ALL THE GUYS THAT AIN’T LIVE TO SEE #25 FROM MY HOOD TO YOURS.”
Last year, G Herbo was arrested after he and his crew allegedly stole identities to charter private jets, book a vacation, and purchase two designer puppies. They allegedly spent over $1.5 million in the process. After the news broke, G Herbo responded with a new song called “Statement” that saw him brushing off the legal accusations.
