To support Epix’s crime drama television series and American Gangster prequel Godfather of Harlem, Wale, G Herbo and Belly are teaming up for a new single titled “Everything’s For Sale.” Written by the duo of Chris Brancato and Paul Eckstein and guided and constructed by directors like Joe Chappelle and Joe Ridley, Godfather of Harlem stars Forest Whitaker as infamous 1960s New York City gangster and narcotics trafficker Bumpy Johnson.
“I am a humble guy, that’s why Humble Beast was what it was. On top of being humble, you’re supposed to be able to talk about your possessions and what you’re doing and why you doin’ it, and big stuff you’re spending your money on,” G Herbo shared with DJ Booth during an August 2018 interview. “That’s most of the beauty of it and working hard and doing what we do … I should be able to talk about the money I’m making and the money I’m spending because I worked hard for it.”
“I can’t really put my finger on it, but when I started rapping I always talked about stories,” G Herbo adds, sharing some insight into his creative and songwriting process. “I could still do that and have fun. I could tell a story about the beginning of the day to right now. A lot of stuff goes on in 24 hours. In life you may see stuff, and when you makin’ money and movin’ around a lot, you see a lot and it’s easy to talk about.”
