On Thursday night, the frequent collaborators finally blessed fans with their joint album Swervo, named after Herbo’s braggadocios alter ego. The Chicago rapper began teasing the project more than a year ago, but didn’t confirm its release until last month. Since then, Herbo and Southside have dropped a number of singles off the long-awaited LP, including the title track, “Some Nights,” and the popular “Who Run It.”
During a recent appearance on Everyday Struggle, Herbo spoke about the 14-track project and what it was like working with Southside.
“It’s different, but it felt so good and natural, just ‘cause me and Southside got a relationship [that’s tight],” he said. “He brings another side of artistry out that I can’t probably touch on my own […] He made me do that party, turn-it-up shit. He saw that in my early on, like, ‘You need to be able to do this, too. It’s the only way you’ll be able to capture the world.’ […] I’m always up for a challenge, so I’m gonna do it, however it come out. It just so happens that it came out good every time.”
Swervo, produced entirely by Southside, is available now on Apple Music/iTunes, as well as Spotify. The project includes appearances by Young Thug, Juice WRLD, 21 Savage, and more.
