G Herbo’s SWERVO Tour Makes A Stop At Union Nightclub In Los Angeles Juice Wrld Joined G Herbo On Stage To Perform "Honestly"
LOS ANGELES, CA- On November 7th, Chicago-born rapper G Herbo visited Los Angeles for his SWERVO tour. After traveling from Phoenix, Arizona, Herbo blessed the stage at the Union Nightclub in the City of Angels. His tour celebrates his newly released collaboration with 808 Mafia’s Atlanta-based producer and rapper, Southside. SWERVO flexes hard hitting collaborations with artists including Atlanta rappers 21 Savage and Young Thug, as well as Chicago’s Juice Wrld and Chief Keef.
The show opened at 8 with new comers Lil James and Queen Key, yet unfortunately Queen Key’s dominating performance was limited to half a song due to unforeseen technical difficulties. The crowd was noticeably irritated and confused due to her shockingly short set. In some cases, dedicated Queen Key fans even decided to leave the show all- together due to their deep disappointment. But thankfully, Q Money brought the crowd’s energy up by performing one of his classic money- talk slaps, “Neat”. Q kept the rowdy energy high for G to take over with his 2018 single “ Make a Jugg” ; a song with over 3.5 million plays on Spotify.
As Q Money wrapped up his dope performance, staff prepared for the main act to take the stage. Red signage reading “G HERBO” in all caps was added to the stage as the anticipation in the room increasingly grew. The Union Nightclub began to get packed as loyal fans waited patiently for Herbo to take the stage.
As soon as he turned up, the crowd turned up with him and as his fans sang all of his singles. His performance mirrored the tone of the album, bringing a fast-paced and “in your face feel” to life. His presence was a major catalyst for the energy of the crowd. His performance featured many well known SWERVO tracks such as “That’s How I Grew Up”, “Focused”, “Swervo”, and “Some Nights”.
Just as I thought the show could not get more hyped, I see one of his recent collaborators by the side of the stage. To perform his single “Honestly,” G Herbo brought out one of the hottest artists on the scene today, Juice Wrld. It was amazing to see everyone’s face in the club light up as they sang along to the popular “Honestly”. The combination of Juice Wrld and G Herbo was a really unique experience, with G Herbo bringing a deep, fierce tone and Juice Wrld evening out the vibes with his smoother verses. It was great to see two performers thrive off each other’s presence and language as displayed by their well working, live pairing. Additionally, watching G Herbo show the amount of love he did for Juice Wrld to his fans was a truly heartwarming and special experience.
Throughout the show Herbo made a point to interact with his supporters by dabbing up fans and giving autographs. At the end of his show he took the time to sign the shoes of those in the crowd and even doubled back for a loving fan who got skipped. Watching him connect with the support that brought him success was an awesome experience which only amplified my care and respect for him. It was refreshing to see a performer who showed real gratitude to the crowd by thanking them and engaging with them directly. In all, the night was a great exhibition of the success of his new album, SWERVO, and his sincere talent and energy. G Herbo’s presence as a performer is truly one of a kind, and it became clear through his commitment to his fans that his support will only grow with projects to come.
