Lil Durk is back with new music just in time for the summer season. He dropped “All My Life” with J. Cole earlier this month before announcing that Almost Healed would be released on Friday, May 26th, 2023.
Then he slid through with the tracklist, which featured Wheezy, Metro Boomin, Zaytoven, Dr. Luke, and others, as well as features from luminaries like Alicia Keys and Future. This tracklist, however, could be a second version of the tracklist, with the first predominantly consisting of Kanye West production.
During an interview with DJ Akademiks, Durk opened up about his standings with Kanye West in recent times. Durk explained that he had a conversation where Kanye detailed “wanting to bring the peace back” to Chicago following his collaboration with Rooga. However, Lil Durk explained it was far more complex than Ye perceived it to be. “When sh*t happen behind certain sh*t, it’s not that easy for what you think. You know, I still talk to him,” he explained.

Afterward, Lil Durk revealed that Kanye West began producing his album in its entirety. “He actually produced by whole album,” Durk revealed. “But I ain’t use it.” The rapper explained that Ye added his magical touch, tweaking with beats and adding vocals. “He played with a couple of records, let me say that,” he said before informing Akademiks that they wouldn’t appear on the tracklist. “He did some genius shit,” Durk added. “I think I’m going to see if I could come back with some genius shit with him, double my sales.”
Although Kanye’s version of Almost Healed likely won’t be released soon, Durk did provide a promising update on the Yeezy founder. “I went to the hotel where he was at. He’s actually in a good head space,” he said. “I guess the bullshit that was going on with him was getting to him but he’s definitely in a good headspace. For now, we could anticipate Lil Durk’s upcoming album tonight. Check out the snippet from his interview with Akademiks above. We’ll keep you posted on anymore updates surrounding Almost Healed.
