Artist: G Herbo
Song: Bottom of the Bottom
Producer: Luca Vialli
Project: Ballin Like I’m Kobe
Director: Gravitii Films
Still fresh off the super-dope ‘Ballin Like Im Kobe’ released last year, Chicago emcee and Viper founder Lily Mercer’s favourite rapper, G Herbo, has given the visual treatment to one of the mixtape’s cuts, ‘Bottom of the Bottom’.
Directed by Gravitii Films, the video is a sombre one, with Herbo playing a runaway slave in the 1800s, as the video steadfastly transitions to the present day, where the 20-year-old is surrounded by police, symbolic of the harsh times we live in now.
This is a visual that shows great ambition and social awareness from Herbo and I certainly hope he continues along this path in the future.
