See what the Midwest rep has to say about his peers.

(AllHipHop News) Even though the perception of modern Hip Hop may revolve around the idea that "vibes" and flow are more important than lyrics, there are still under-30 rappers that focus on the content in their music.

Chicago's G Herbo presented his songwriting ability on tracks like "Malcolm." In fact, his entire Humble Beast album received positive reviews for its bars about street life.

During an interview with Montreality, Herbo was asked about some of his contemporaries' musical approach. The 22-year-old rhymer showed support for his peers.

"I don't really be paying attention to that sh-t. It's just about having fun. I feel like music is meant to be different. Everybody is meant to have a different style," offered G Herbo. "It's working for everybody, staying in their lane."

He continued, "I don't really pay attention to all that mumble rap sh-t. You may wanna have fun. I don't really know what the f-ck mumble rap is, honestly. That sh-t's weird to me. It's music. I don't know why they call it mumble rap. It's just music."
