Hailing from three distinct hip-hop communities, Chicago drill architect G Herbo, New York boom-bap revivalist Joey Bada$$, and New (New?) Atlanta beatmaker Metro Boomin have joined forces for "Lord Knows," a Red Bull Sound Select release.
"Me and Joey are on a whole other level of rap music for the young niggas right now," said Herbo of the borderless collaboration in an email to The FADER. "We are both from different worlds almost but we connect together on an artist level. We bring our different styles together and create good music."
Good music like "Lord Knows," which finds the two youngsters trading unflinching bars—Got some problem only Lord knows, sometimes I need a break but I got more shows, Herb growls—over a toothy Metro production. Here's to hoping there is more like this to come.
