The project includes the singles, "The Voice," "Stay Down," and "Backdoor."

While Durk's career has exploded in recent years, he recently admitted that he plans to spend more time with his family. Durk first became a father in 2011 with then-girlfriend Nicole Covone. He reportedly has six children in total.

"How I'm the voice of the trenches, I take care [of] my kids but don't spend time with them?" he recently wrote on his Instagram Story. "My goal is to better my relationship with them, not shit else, or blame everybody around me. Ima great father, Ima step it up and lock in and become the voice 100%. Love y'all,"
