Lil Herb (aka G Herbo) drops his long-awaited Welcome To Fazoland mixtape, and on first listen it’s an easy frontrunner for the best Chicago rap tape of the year so far. Over the past year, Herb and frequent collaborator Lil Bibby have been making a strong case against drill detractor’s claims that young Chicago rap is lyrically bankrupt, forging their own niche in the city’s rap scene with production that’s as tough as drill paired with legitimate bars. Here, Herb talks tough, but he’s lamenting his city’s violence even as he grimly accepts it. Welcome To Fazoland features guest spots from Bibby, King Louie, Lil Durk, and more.
