Lil Herb has expressed numerous times he doesn’t consider himself a drill artist. Herb places himself in the Hip Hop category.
The NLMB spitter expounded on his artistry during an interview with Complex Magazine.
“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.”
