Quality Control Music, Wolfpack Global Music, Motown Records, and Alamo Records have released Lil Baby and Lil Durk’s long-awaited project The Voice Of The Heroes.
The Voice Of The Heroes is one of the year’s most anticipated albums, with Travis Scott, Meek Mill, Young Thug, and Rod Wave joining the Atlanta and Chicago rap titans for a supercharged effort. The album is complemented with a cinematic new Daps-directed video for “How It Feels,” which follows Baby and Durk on a jewelry robbery, signifying their newfound “Robin Hood” responsibilities of taking from the wealthy and giving to the less fortunate. Later today, the video will be live.
With the sending of identical tweets from Baby and Durk late last month, the long-awaited collaboration endeavor was announced as approaching. Baby stated he and Durk have “more than one album recorded” in an interview with MTV News earlier this year. As is generally known, the idea originated as a fan suggestion, which eventually led to both artists expressing approval for the plan.

James Harden, the NBA superstar, is recognized as an executive producer of The Voice Of The Heroes, as he was involved in the project’s conception and Lil Baby spent a significant amount of time recording in Harden’s studio. The now-famous video of Harden’s generous “honey bun” gift during Lil Baby’s birthday celebration in December revealed a lot about Harden and Baby’s connection. Harden also teased samples from the album on Instagram earlier this week, offering fans a sneak peek at what’s to come.
Lil Baby has added to his trophy case after winning the Hip Hop Album Of The Year title at the 2021 iHeartRadio awards. His collaboration with Kirk Franklin on the Space Jam: A New Legacy Official Soundtrack, “We Win,” has received a lot of attention, with over 4 million plays and a No. 1 debut on the Billboard Hot Gospel Songs chart. This is Kirk Franklin’s eighth Hot Gospel Songs No. 1 single, and Lil Baby’s first.
At the 2021 edition of the iHeartRadio Music Awards, Baby’s My Turn—featuring “Woah” and “The Bigger Picture”—bagged the award for Hip-Hop Album of the Year. The win was complemented by Baby’s appearance in the recently released video for DJ Khaled’s star-stacked Khaled Khaled cut “I Did It,” directed by Dave Myers.
Lil Durk, meanwhile, was recently announced as one of the artists who have been tapped to contribute music to the soon-to-be-released soundtrack for F9. Durk—who appears on two F9 tracks—is joined on the companion piece by Offset, Trippie Redd, Latto, Skepta, Ty Dolla Sign, Jack Harlow, Don Toliver, NLE Choppa, 24kGoldn, and many more.
