Over the past few months, Chicago rapper G Herbo has distinguished himself as one of the up-and-comers in the rap game. His latest album, ‘Humble Beast,’ was received well and he has racked up millions of views on Youtube. However, the Chi-Town emcee has hit a snag, after he was arrested with two others on illegal gun charges yesterday (February 22).
According to FOX 32, Herbo and two of his people were pulled over around 10:35 PM last night on East Roosevelt Rd. in Chicago’s South Loop. Herbo (government name Herbert Wright), 22; Deavonte Royale Kimbale, 25, of Compton, California; and Marchello Walton, 36, of Phenix City, Alabama were each arrested after Central District police found them all to be in possession of loaded handguns.
According to police, each of the men were charged with a felony count of aggravated unlawful use of a loaded weapon in a vehicle without a FOID card. They are all expected to appear in bond court today.
