With Humble Beast still in rotation, G Herbo is readying the release of his sophomore album, Swervo.
“Swervo is a lifestyle, it’s my alter-ego,” the Chicago rapper told Complex about the project’s concept. “It’s the other side of Humble Beast.”
Produced entirely by Southside, Herbo kicks off the campaign with a video for the project’s title-track.
“Southside, who produced the whole album, came up with the name,” Herbo says. “We would hook up in Atlanta, Miami, or L.A. and just hop in $200K whips, swerv thru traffic—really just have fun and enjoy life—then go to the lab and capture that feeling. It’s that vibe. I can’t get that feeling in Chicago, because Chicago ain’t a place you can relax and let your guard down. Not even for a second. Don’t get me wrong, I still talk that street talk, because that who I am at my core, but on this album I’m still having fun with it at the same time.”
