G Herbo Reworks an R&B Classic for New Song “Pull Up”
G Herbo just took it back to the '90s. The Chicago-born spitter and 2016 XXL Freshman pulled a sample from Silk's 1992 bedroom banger "Freak Me" for his raunchy new rap "Pull Up." Even though the song sampled is older that Herbo himself, the Chicago rapper has no problem laying down details of his bedroom skills.
"Let me show you how the gangsters do it/I know you tryna get it off/Turn the Bryson Tiller off, let me fuck you to this gangster music/Party bag and I can't refuse it/Pussy so good, so tight, know I gotta abuse it/One stroke, two strokes, same beat as the music," raps a gruff-voiced Herbo over production from The Kid Marquis.
“Freak Me” was a No. 1 hit on the Billboard Hot 100 and R&B chart back in 1993, making it Silk's most successful single to date. The Keith Sweat and TH-produced slow jam appeared on Silk's double-platinum debut album Lose Control.
Herbo has clearly been putting in work in the studio in 2016. Aside from collaborating with his home team, Herbo has dropped loosies like "The Drop" and "59 to 79". Herbo's work ethic has remained unwavering since he came out.
"I’ve been working hard," the 20-year-old explained during his XXL Freshman issue interview. "So really it’s just when I succeed and do good things, it’s like, 'Alright, let’s get better.' That’s just my mindset with everything, coming in humble and then try to make the best of the situation and all the opportunities that gonna come with it."
Herbo's debut album Humble Beast via Cinematic Music Group is expected to drop this year. For now, check out "Pull Up" above.
