Fans itching to hear Lil Durk and Lil Baby’s joint-project Voice of the Heroes will have to wait a few more weeks. Surprisingly, Swizz Beatz shared an update on their album during a DMX listening event held on Zoom Thursday, May 13.
According to HipHopDX, before the listening session ended, Swizz mentioned that Lil Durk and Lil Baby pushed back the release of their joint-album Voice of the Heroes out of respect for DMX.
Swizz’ announcement arrives after both Baby and Durk teased their release date in Instagram posts on Monday. “How does Voice of the Heroes dropping on May 28 sound?” Baby asked in the caption of his IG post. Duel shared a similar, more straightforward caption on Instagram, “The voice of the hero’s may28th what y’all think….. @lilbaby,” Durk wrote.
