HIP-HOP | G Herbo

G Herbo's voice carries the weight of a man well past his years. The 20-year-old rapper grew up in a violent part of Chicago's East Side — an area horrifically nicknamed Terror Town — and well, they say write what you know. Herbo's music can be called drill — a Chicago hip-hop subgenre that uses trap beats and usually ultra-dark lyrical content — but takes it a step further with deep storytelling and a knack for cinematic production. In November, Herbo put out "Ballin Like I'm Kobe," named for his murdered friend, Jacobi Herring.

G Herbo will perform Wednesday, December 16, at California Brew Haus, 402 West Ridge Road. 6 p.m. $20-$55. ticketfly.com; gherbo.com.
