While not quite a marquee work for either artist, the new team-up is reliably consistent and casts them as a natural pair—near-ideal complements to one another in writing and execution.

The Needle Drop

Despite being backed by some pretty unremarkable production, Lil Baby and Lil Durk bring out the best of each other on The Voice of the Heroes.


A bold gesture weighed down with excess, 'The Voice Of The Heroes' is a worthy experiment, one that feels destined to be a cult favourite.


On their solo projects we’ve seen the two explore emotions and musical range to make knockout hits, but when Lil Baby and Lil Durk come together, it’s a little more hit and miss.

'The Voice of the Heroes', a collaborative album between Atlanta artist, Lil Baby, and Chicago artist, Lil Durk, is a crisp, cool trap project that gives you a good idea of the trap genre currently, being one of my favorite trap collaborative albums that I've heard.

edit - 9.5/10. no regrets at all.

whooops, belated-review mb, i reviewed the lead single when it came out (months ago) and i left my non existent album review hype train behind. however, i'm glad that i let this release sit with me because i didn't like it nearly as much a month ago.
