G Herbo's childhood friend Gregory Jackson III, also known as Lil Greg, was shot and killed on Jan. 28 at a barbershop in Chicago, as recently confirmed by the Chicago Sun-Times.

When the news reached him, Herb took to Instagram to share with his 6.1 million followers an emotional tribute to his fallen friend. He wrote about growing up together and how Greg always had his back, alongside pictures from their younger days.

“Shorty all I know is you!! From the fucking cradle 2 the grave literally!" Herbo opened his post. "As Im writing this caption twin I ain’t even dropping tears cuz 4 what we always been stronger together & you still with me right now..I feel you! ...

Lil Greg left behind two young children, whom Herbo appears to have referenced and promised to look after. “I love you & themm 2 lil n***as cmon mann you man they a never go without!!
