Lil Durk fans can stop holding their breath. His eighth studio album Almost Healed has finally hit.
The project arrives two weeks after its initially scheduled drop date, when YoungBoy Never Broke Again stepped up to claim the spotlight with Richest Opp. Durk announced his pushback at the last minute, though he did release the lead single “All My Life” featuring J. Cole.
Since then, the Chicago-born 30-year-old has shared Almost Healed’s 21-song tracklist and its star-studded list of contributors. In addition to Cole, the album includes guest appearances by Future, 21 Savage, Kodak Black, Morgan Wallen, and the late Juice WRLD, as well as production by Alicia Keys, Southside, Metro Boomin, Zaytoven, Wheezy, and Cubeatz.
Durk began teasing the effort at the top of the year, shortly after releasing Only the Family’s compilation album Loyal Bros 2. During an April interview with XXL, the rapper spoke about the new project, originally titled The Voice 2.0.
“Growth. That’s what the 2.0 stand for, just be on another level,” he explained. “Just not only music-wise, like the things around me like I told you, growing from the friends around me, management. Sitting with the mayor. We doin’ big charity things. Neighborhood Heroes, the foundation I got… Cause if you say you The Voice, it’s like, ‘OK, you The Voice of the Streets, so what happened? What you do? I did this, this, cool. OK, now what you do for the kids? … So, now we just breaking it down.”
Durk will support the album with his Sorry for the Drought North American tour with Kodak and NLE Choppa. The trek will begin July 28 in Tampa, and will include stops in Brooklyn, Boston, Houston, Seattle, and Los Angeles.
