Last year, Chicago's G Herbo and Joey Bada$$ of New York crossed state lines to team up for “Lord Knows” (which we premiered!) Bada$$ fans were surprised to hear the Pro Era rapper sounding more like Fredo Santana than his trademark - and some would say infamous - golden-age lyricism. He pulls it off, and has an undeniable chemistry with Herbo, whose Ballin Like I'm Kobe project is something to behold (listen to “L's,” a highlight from that record)
Above, you can watch the “Lord Knows” music video, which follows the pair in a series of long shots throughout different locations and gatherings in a neighbourhood. It aims for the cinematic, as evidenced by the “R” rating with the video's title, but the only obscene item you'll find here is a really nice car. Check it out, get the track on iTunes, and below watch Herbo define some Chicago vernacular on The Slang Show.
