Lil Durk has been generous lately. The Chicago rapper’s Neighborhood Heroes HBCU College & Career Readiness Cohort Program donated $100,000 scholarships to two Howard University students, and Lil Durk added another $250,000 to Howard’s GRACE Grant program for financial aid.
He also met with Chicago mayor Brandon Johnson to discuss his foundation and how they could work together to help the city’s youth. Some people claimed Lil Durk only met with Johnson as album promotion, but he firmly denied that. “Stop saying my name on all negativity I’m smarter then [sic] that post what we doing for these kids [trophy emoji, globe emoji] – the voice,” he tweeted on May 8.
An album is coming from Lil Durk this week, though. Almost Healed will arrive over a year after March 2022’s 7220, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200, and almost exactly two years after his joint album with Lil Baby, The Voice Of The Heroes.

Lil Durk shared the tracklist earlier this week, revealing a posthumous Juice WRLD feature. The other featured artists are 21 Savage, Alicia Keys, Chief Wuk, Future, Kodak Black, J. Cole, Morgan Wallen, and Rob49.
The lead single, “All My Life” featuring J. Cole, dropped on May 12 alongside a video directed by Steve Cannon.
The album’s opener, “Therapy Session” featuring Alicia Keys and “Pelle Coat” have been released as well, with the six-minute “Therapy Session/Pelle Coat” video (another Cannon-directed product) arriving on the eve of Almost Healed. “Therapy Session” solely features Keys speaking to Lil Durk, asking him about past traumas and encouraging him to express his “vulnerabilities and emotions.”
“Today is May 26,” she says, her voice echoing to Lil Durk as he sits alone in a dark room. “Remember that you don’t have to go through this alone. I’m here to listen. You have the voice in this room. I wanna hear from Durk Banks.” The video then cuts to “Pelle Coat.”
Lil Durk will be accompanied by Kodak Black and NLE Choppa on his Sorry For The Drought Tour. The North American trek is scheduled to begin in Tampa, Florida on July 28 and stretch until September 7 in Phoenix, Arizona. See all of the dates below.
