G Herbo pleads his case on new single, “Statements”

Rapper G Herbo addresses recent fraud charges against him and members of his crew on his latest track “Statement.” The track flips The Diplomat‘s 2003 classic, “I Really Mean It.” 


On the track, the Chicago rapper discusses allegations that he used stolen identities and credit card information to purchase exotic rental cars, flights on a private jet, and a villa in Jamaica, amongst other luxury items. 

Herbo raps: “Let’s talk about them jets, yeah, let’s talk about Jamaica /Can ask about me, I ain’t never been a fraud, I went hard from the start /In my city I’m a god /If you know you know/Never been no phony though.”

As previously reported, the Chicago rapper, whose real name is Herbert Wright III, pled not guilty after he was charged for his involvement in a federal fraud scheme in Massachusetts. His manager/promoter Antonio “T-Glo” Strong along with four others were also charged in a 14-count indictment. 

After surrendering his passport and submitting to drug testing, G Herbo was freed on a $75,000 bond, according to TMZ. He faces two counts of aiding and abetting aggravated identity theft, one count of conspiracy to commit wire fraud and up to six years in prison, if convicted.
