LOS ANGELES, Nov. 16, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- LiveOne (Nasdaq: LVO) ("LiveOne"), a global platform for livestream and on-demand audio, video, and podcast/vodcast content in music, comedy, and pop culture, and owner of LiveXLive, PodcastOne, Slacker Radio, React Presents, Gramophone Media, and Custom Personalization Solutions, announced today that it will exclusively livestream the pay-per-view ("PPV") concert for platinum rapper G Herbo to celebrate the release of his new album 25 on November 24th. The event will be livestreamed from G Herbo's sold out hometown show in Chicago.
After quietly grinding for years out of his native Chicago, G Herbo established himself as not only a platinum-selling, chart-topping phenomenon, but also as a staunch mental health advocate and proponent for change in the black community. Following a string of acclaimed projects, his critically celebrated third album PTSD bowed at #7 on the Billboard Top 200, received praise from Rolling Stone as "his most vulnerable album to date," and yielded one of the most important songs of 2020 - the platinum-certified title track "PTSD" (feat. Juice WRLD, Lil Uzi Vert, & Chance the Rapper). Additionally, he launched Swervin' Through Stress youth mental health program and renovated an old shuttered public elementary school into a community center in Chicago. G Herbo remains a motivating pillar in hip-hop culture.
"LiveOne is proud to team up with a modern voice in music as cutting-edge and honest as G Herbo," said Roe Williams, Global Head of Talent and Artist Partnerships of LiveOne. "The need for destigmatized conversations about mental health are as crucial as ever, and we are honored to bring the celebration of Herbo's success live from his hometown of Chicago and expand it worldwide."

Limited VIP bundles that give fans access to an exclusive virtual meet-and-greet with G Herbo himself are also available. Every ticket purchased also comes with three free months of LiveXLive.
