Earlier this month, Lil Durk and Lil Baby teamed up for the joint effort The Voice of the Heroes, which contains 18 tracks with additional features from Travis Scott, Meek Mill, Young Thug, and Rod Wave. To the surprise of no one, the project was a chart-topping success on the Billboard 200, mainly in part thanks to the 150,000 first week units sold.
Presumably looking to keep their momentum going, the Atlanta-to-Chicago duo return with a new visual from the album for “Man of My Word,” a DJ Young Pharaoh, IRoccOnTheBeat, and Nile Waves-produced cut that sees the artists rapping about wealth, women, the streets, and more:
“How she acting funny? I bought her her titties, niggas she be fucking ain’t none of my business, upping my pole, that’s a part of my fitness, don’t matter where I’m at, bitch, I’m known for the trenches, we the first niggas put drums in the city, we robbed the niggas, put drugs in the city, fuck where you from ‘cause I know that you with it, check on his ass, I’ma handle my business...”
Directed by Caleb Jermale, the clip begins with Durk and Baby heading out into the night in a Mclaren, as a convoy of vehicles trail behind them. Interspersed between shots of the artists enjoying the nightlife — including a strip club visit — are CGI versions of the rappers getting involved in more action-packed fare, from shootouts to car crashes.
Both Baby and Durk enjoyed a fruitful 2020 as well, releasing the popular drops My Turn and The Voice, respectively. More recently, Baby could also be heard on tracks alongside EST Gee, Joyner Lucas, Russ, DJ Khaled, and Kirk Franklin — meanwhile, Durk re-connected with his OTF collective for their Loyal Bros compilation. Given both of their worth ethic, fans can probably expect even more from the two — together or solo — before this year’s end.
