“It was actually them, so I ended up flying out [to L.A.,” G Herbo recalled with HipHopDX. This is a tale that Herbo has shared over the years, but he retold it once again. “It was crazy man because it was like, I’m really here. Nicki Minaj studio. I met her. It was the best studio I ever been in, of course, I’m used to recording in closets and sh*t like that. It was just crazy. I had to just try to stay focused on what I had to do and that was just rap. That was my main focus, just trying to deliver on the verse.”
The rapper admitted that he’s more of a reserved, quiet person, so he wasn’t “really saying much” during the in-person session. Herbo said their 2014 collaboration, “Chiraq,” was the launching pad his career needed. “I started to do shows after that,” he said. “That was a big turning point in my career.” Of course, the Barbz we hot on his tail, too.
