EDITORS’ NOTES

The cover art of G Herbo’s Swervo, which features the Chicago MC and the album’s lone producer, Southside, clad in custom-made print jackets and seated atop a luxury vehicle, is a riff on the artwork for Eric B. & Rakim’s 1988 album, Follow the Leader. It’s a fitting projection: On the long-teased Swervo, the pair sound like longtime running mates, Atlanta trap’s most celebrated beatsmith providing abundant low-end for Herbo’s gravelly and verbose couplets. The pair even trade bars with each other on “Pac n Dre,” likening themselves to that other very legendary duo.
