Lil Herb is not taking any breaks from his music grind. Herb is set to follow up the success of his debut mixtape project “Welcome To Fazoland” with what we hope to be more classic Hip Hop.
Lil Herb took to IG to reveal the cover art for his upcoming sophomore mixtape “Ballin Like I’m Kobe.”
The project is an ode to Herb’s slain friend.
Kobe, whose birth name was Jacoby Herron, was murdered Aug. 10, 2013 after suffering multiple gunshot wounds to the head and body outside a South Shore McDonald’s. He was 21.
“#MISSYOUMYNIGGA,” the caption on Herb’s post read.
The East Side native gave listeners the low down on his upcoming tape during an interview with WGCI’s DJ MoonDawg.
“Official name for my next project…I’ma drop a mixtape called ‘Balling Like I’m Kobe,’” he said. “It’s in memory of my homie who passed away…Kobe,” Herb said.
Herb has mentioned Kobe numerous times in music, including songs, “All My N*ggas,” “All I Got” and “At The Light.”
“I know people probably familiar with me rapping about him on ‘At The Light,’” Herb said. “That was one of the biggest songs on the mixtape.”
In “At The Light,” Herb raps, “Me and Kobe off ACT with the sprite/He just left and they took his life/Wish the Lord would’ve just let him fight/But don’t trip man, it’s gon be alright.”
“The songs I got got meanings to them,” Herb explained. “I recorded that song three days after I lost my homie.”
Herb’s debut mixtape was named after deceased friend Fazion Robinson who was murdered April 12, 2010.
Herb’s upcoming project doesn’t have a set release date at this time.
“I don’t got an official date for it, but it’s coming real soon,” he said.
