Wright was born and raised in Chicago, Illinois. He attended Hyde Park Academy High School and dropped out when he was 16 years old. Meek Mill, Jeezy, Gucci Mane, Yo Gotti, and Lil Wayne were all influences on him. He is good friends with Lil Bibby, a fellow rapper with whom he has worked on a number of songs.
Both artists are members of the N.L.M.B. family, which was formed by the merger of No Limit, a renegade faction of the Almighty Black P. Stone Nation, and the Muskegon Boyz, a renegade faction of the Gangster Disciples, although the initials N.L.M.B. are now also used by the gang to signify “Never Leave My Brothers” and “No Limit Muskegon Boys.” N.L.M.B. is a “brotherhood” rather than a gang, according to Wright.

G Herbo Controversies
After their limousine chauffeur notified authorities that some of his passengers had firearms, Wright and two other men were detained in February 2018. Wright was seen in the back passenger seat of the car, putting a Fabrique National revolver in the seat back pocket. Wright and the other two males did not have Illinois firearm owner’s identity cards, and they were all charged with aggravated unauthorised use of a weapon, which is a felony under Illinois law. Wright was sentenced to two years of probation after pleading guilty to one count of improper use of a firearm, a misdemeanour, in 2019.
After an alleged violent fight with his child’s mother, Ariana “Ari” Fletcher, Wright was arrested in Atlanta on April 19, 2019, for simple violence.
On Thursday, April 18, Fletcher published her account on Instagram, writing, “Because I wouldn’t let him in, he knocked down my door and beat the f**k out of me in front of my baby. Then he took my son outside to his pals and had them drive away with him, hid all of my knives in my house, smashed my phone, locked me inside, and beat the f**k out of me all over again…” Physical symptoms of assault, she claimed, including a black eye and scratches, cuts, and bruises all over her body. Wright was freed on a $2,000 bond a week later. Following his release, he went on Instagram Live to talk about his fight with Fletcher.
Herbo said in the video that Fletcher had taken jewels from his mother’s home. He claimed specifically, “I’ve been deafeningly quiet the entire time. I’m not going to file an insurance claim or try to put you in jail. Nothing. You instructed me to return to Atlanta to get the jewels.”
On December 2, 2020, Wright and several associates, including Wright’s promoter and manager, Antonio “T-Glo” Strong; South Side rapper Joseph “Joe Rodeo” Williams; and alleged co-conspirators Steven Hayes Jr., Demario Sorrells, and Terrence Bender, all from Chicago, were indicted in a federal court in Massachusetts on 14 federal charges including wire fraud and aggravated identity theft.
Wright and his accomplices were accused of charging extravagant excursions, purchasing designer dogs, renting luxurious villas in Jamaica, and hiring private aircraft, all while using stolen identities. The scam allegedly amounted to millions of dollars over a four-year period beginning in 2016. Wright has maintained his innocence and “looks forward to demonstrating his innocence in court,” according to his management team.
