G Herbo and Fallen Friends
The title of the album called Welcome to Fazoland was inspired by G Herbo's friend named Fazon Robinson, who was a victim of street violence when they were children. Part of the reason for the mixtape's success was G Herbo's ability to direct his feelings about his friend and about the problems plaguing Chicago into his music. He would go on to release another mixtape in 2015 called Ballin Like I'm Kobe, which was inspired by another good friend named Jacobi Herring, who was a victim of gun violence in 2013. G Herbo once stated that Jacobi always believed in him and persistently told him to stay focused and to invest in his musical craft as well as in himself.
