Interview: G Herbo Opens Up About Mental Health Therapy & 'PTSD'

#DXCLUSIVE: Chicago rapper G Herbo opens up about making the decision to see a therapist to deal with his PTSD and the making of his forthcoming album.

G Herbo is set to release forthcoming studio album titled PTSD this month and it’s his most cohesive project yet, delivering a reflection of what it’s like growing up in Chicago with post-traumatic stress disorder.

Speaking with HipHopDX, Swervo recalled when he had his moment of clarity about the effects of PTSD. He also shared how he used his newfound clarity to create PTSD..centered-ad {

“When the lawyer told me to go see the therapist, it was really just me embracing it,” G Herbo explained during our phone conversation. “I think I was already aware of the issue, and why I even had to get arrested, or have to carry a gun in the first place.”

In 2018, the 24-year-old raised as Herbert Randall Wright III, was arrested along with two other men when their limousine driver called the police on them for having guns.
