NBA YoungBoy To Drop Mixtape On Same Day As Lil Durk

NBA YoungBoy is reportedly dropping a new mixtape on Friday, the same day that Lil Durk intends to release his new album, Almost Healed. The news was confirmed on social media, earlier this week. The two releases come after YoungBoy and Durk confirmed that they're still feuding, despite DJ Akademiks claiming otherwise.

“That beef is squashed. You ain’t hear?” the Off the Record podcast host said during a stream last Thursday. “I’m serious. Durk and YoungBoy don’t have beef no more.” Both artists shot down the report on social media. Durk wrote on his IG Story: "I ain’t friends with no n****s [unamused face emoji] stop it.” YoungBoy posted his @BAEHELPTOP handle, "Ak you a bitch along with his industry friends I love this shit it turn out the same way every time."

Akademiks later clarified his remarks in an Instagram comment. “Lol I ain’t say that,” he wrote. “I mean they ain’t actively dissing each other no more in music and tweets anything y’all see is more than likely directed at other ppl instead of each other.” The two have been opening beef since trading shots on the release of multiple diss tracks, last year. While things appeared to be simmering down for a while, the simultaneous release of new projects may reignite the feud.

As for what fans can expect from Durk's Almost Healed, he told XXL that he's focused on "Growth," with the project. He spoke with the outlet for a cover story, earlier this year. At the time, he was titling the project, The Voice 2.0. "That’s what the 2.0 stand for, just be on another level," he said. "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."
