Lil Herb On Chiraq Violence: Once People Die, It’s Everlasting

Chicago violence has been the topic of much discussion since the City was thrust into national spotlight after recording over 500 homicides in 2012. Lil Herb aka G Herbo has attempted to break down the cause of the violence during recent interviews. Herb blamed his hometown’s plight on the lack of guidance and resources.

“There’s no guidance,” Herb told Complex Mag. “The centers in my neighborhood that we used to go to aren’t open no more. Churches where we used to play basketball not open no more. I don’t know if we f****d it up with all the violence, but it’s not a lot of s--- for kids to do no more. There’s not a lot of jobs, money, opportunity. That’s the whole problem.”

As far as gang violence goes, Herb explained it’s over territorial disputes.

“People fight over territory, and they’re not even making no money,” he said. “It’s just petty s---. It’s everlasting. Once blood sheds, it don’t matter how little the dispute was; once people die, it’s everlasting.”

Herb further elaborated on the reasoning behind the violence when offering his opinion on Spike Lee’s “Chi-Raq” during an interview with Young Jack Thriller of ThisIs50.

“It’s real struggle behind it,” Herb said. “It ain’t just shoot em, bang bang, people killing. …It’s certain situations that make what you are and what you go through. That’s why I tell the stories that I tell. It’s people outside of Chicago… a lot of people who looking in don’t know what it feel like to be 13 walking home from school and you lose your big brother or your homie who you care about that you looked up to all your life. You see them get killed right in your face to some sh*t that was probably over a zip of weed, some petty as sh*t that’s everlasting after blood shed, and that’s what makes people resort to certain situations.”
