Chicago rapper G Herbo has announced his new album Survivor's Remorse with its lead single "Me, Myself & I" featuring New York's A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie. The new track continues on the path Herbo laid with his 2020 project PTSD, an album about wounds both physical and unseen, and how easy it is to get sidetracked on the road to healing.
Judging from Herbo's lyrics, he's wrestling with the same demons that defined so much of PTSD: "I been tweakin' (Trippin'), hardly ever sleepin' (Slippin') / Always overthinkin' (I feel it), tryna duck the reaper (That's how I'm livin')" A Boogie's verses are a bit too cloying to stack up next to Herbo's, though, even when they're trading bars in the final verse. The new track comes with a cinematic music video from director Joe Bracero that's filled with lots of impressive drone shots.
“A Boogie is my brother," Herbo said in a statement. "We’ve been locked in since the beginning. It’s a deep record inspired by real-life events. When I heard the beat, I knew what I wanted to say. It’s about the pain we’ve felt and certain situations we couldn’t control.”
Herbo's most recent album 25 was released in 2021. The same year he pleaded not guilty to charges of wire fraud and identity theft; he was subsequently accused of lying to federal officials in connection with the case. Herbo addressed the charges in a song called "Statement." Herbo's new album Survivor's Remorse doesn't tyet have a release date, though a press statement says it's "coming soon."
