G Herbo is a young veteran in the rap game. Just 25 years old, the Chicago native has already released four albums and a handful of mixtapes. Like any talented youngster, some wisdom from an older pro can take his career to a new level.
That happened in 2020, when G Herbo’s PTSD became his most successful album to date. It peaked at No. 7 on the Billboard 200 chart, his first time cracking the top 10. The album’s title song, featuring Chance The Rapper, Lil Uzi Vert and the late Juice WRLD, is certified platinum.
G Herbo’s recent success coincides with his association with New York hip-hop veteran Fabolous. The 42-year-old is a multi-platinum-selling legendary lyricist with two decades in the rap game, and he’s recently taken G Herbo under his wing.
Fab’s connection with Herbo goes deeper than music. It’s more like family. That’s because G Herbo for the last couple of years has been dating Taina Williams, who is Fabolous’ stepdaughter.
For Herbo’s birthday in October, Fabolous gifted him a chain that said “The Family.” Around the same time, rumors picked up that Taina and G Herbo are expecting a child together.
Fans and followers of the two rappers may not know a lot about Taina, the woman through whom they’ve formed a bond.
Who is Taina Williams? Here are some facts to get to know her better.
1. Taina Williams Grew Up In the Spotlight
Taina was born on April 1, 1998. The 22-year-old is the daughter of Emily Bustamante, a.k.a. Emily B, who’s been (off-and-on) with Fabolous for about 20 years. Emily B was an original cast member on “Love & Hip-Hop,” and a young Taina even appeared on a couple of episodes. Taina picked up some notoriety of her own along the way. A video of her going to her high school prom got over 105,000 views on YouTube.
2. Taina Is A Model And Social Media Influencer
Taina has 2 million Instagram followers and almost 130,000 Twitter followers. She endorses a variety of cosmetic lines and clothing designers. She’s also modeled for Rihanna‘s Savage X Fenty brand.
3. When Did Taina Williams Start Dating G Herbo?
On New Year’s Eve 2018, G Herbo and Taina went public with their relationship. Only a couple of months prior, G Herbo had broken up with Ari Fletcher, a popular model and social media influencer who is the mother of his son Yosohn. Ari Fletcher (who is currently dating Memphis rapper Moneybagg Yo) publicly accused G Herbo of cheating on her with Taina.
4. More Cheating Stories Involving G Herbo + Taina Williams
In April of 2019, G Herbo was arrested for simple battery against Ari Fletcher. In a leaked video of his arrest, he admitted that he was still sleeping with Ari, but “I really love Taina. I don’t want to f****** be with Ari.” He said Taina is the one “who I really care about.” Despite the arrest and the cheating admission, Taina and Herbo never appeared to break up.
5. Taina Bought G Herbo A $100K Jeep For His Birthday
When G Herbo turned 25 this year, Taina bought him a Jeep Trackhawk that’s valued at around $100,000. For some fans on the Internet, however, that wasn’t good enough. Taina was teased for her gift, but G Herbo came to her defense.
6. Taina Williams Pregnancy And Engagement Rumors
G Herbo’s note that Taina “got me a gift that came with a gift,” along with the photo of his arms wrapped around her stomach, led to rumors that perhaps the couple is expecting a baby. Neither have confirmed or denied that. A few weeks prior, G Herbo joked about going to a pawn shop to buy a ring and said “I’m getting married,” which started rumors that he and Taina Williams were getting engaged. Again, neither one has confirmed or denied that rumor.
