Lil Herb-Frankie Lymon
Lil Herb’s stories about his block in Chicago have resonated with rap fans more than any national news headline about the crisis of violence and unemployment. His gruff vocals punch through speakers and grab you by the ears with a rawness that eclipses any over dramatized CNN broadcast. “Frankie Lymon” is a warm-up to his upcoming Ball Like Kobe mixtape which is a follow-up to his critically acclaimed Welcome To Fazoland that came out last February. Lil Herb just appeared on Common’s remix to “Fight Or Flight” after also guesting on Nobody’s Smiling.
