Lil Herb Compares His Music To Jay Z and Nas
Lil Herb has long tried to distance himself from the Drill title. G Herb tells critics to instead compare his music to Jay Z and Nas.
“I don’t consider myself a drill artist,” Herb told Redbull.com. “You can compare my music to early Hov and Nas and those types of people. I’m telling real stories about my struggle, my life, and my pain and how I’m trying to come up from under it and change people’s lives.”
Herb compared his music to Nas during his interview with Complex.
“What I do, it’s like Nas. That’s Hip Hop. You’re rapping over a sample while telling a story,” he said. “Drill music, you’re not really telling a story. It’s rap, but it’s a new genre. It’s like house music, turn-up music, party music. It ain’t gotta be about violence.”
Herb’s considers himself a “lyricist” and attributes his lyrical ability to growing up on the music of Jadakiss, Nas, Lil Wayne and Juelz Sanatana.
“I don’t consider what I do drill music because I’m going over soulful shit—those aren’t drill beats, for one—and I’m really talking about my life and what I got going on,” Herb said. “Everyday shit. My past, my future, and where I’m at mentally. That’s not drill music. I can make it, but it’s not really the type of artist that I am.”
Herb previously stated this sentiment during a sit-down interview with Sway In The Morning.
“I’m for the drill music, but I still try to expand… be more than that,” he said. “That’s why I got a lot of soulful songs and songs telling stories cause that’s not drill music. That’s real music. I don’t consider myself a drill artist either. I’m just a artist. I try to expand my whole lane and try to be different. I can’t really speak on the whole drill thing cause I don’t try to label myself as a drill artist.”
