G Herbo visualizes the themes present in his new album, "PTSD," by reflecting on a variety of traumatic events he suffered in his childhood in the "Intro" visuals.

G Herbo has been using his music to heal from his childhood wounds, and now, he's put all of these traumatic events on display in the visuals for "Intro" off his soul-bearing album, PTSD. Prior to dropping PTSD on February 28th earlier this year, Herbo opened up about what inspired the album, including the official diagnosis he received of the title disorder. "We kind of don’t know that we suffer from these mental health issues," he revealed. "I’m a product of that. I was shot at. I seen my first murder at nine years old. A lot of this stuff that we encounter on a day-to-day basis, we think is normal just because it’s our reality. We think it’s something we’re supposed to be going through. I feel like in the poverty-stricken neighbourhoods, a lot of us are suffering from PTSD. I thought it was important for me because I know it’s a lot of people who are like me.” 

The rapper explored all of this trauma on PTSD, and in the new visuals for the album's opening track, aptly-titled "Intro," he brings his past reality to life. In the video, a young Herbo witnesses, as he previously mentioned during press for PTSD, a young boy getting fatally shot at nine years old, after becoming involved in drug-dealing at an even younger age. Watch the heavy-hitting visuals for G Herbo's "Intro" and experience the difficult journey the rapper has been through.
