With another crop of new music dropping every Friday, Lil Baby is making sure he has everyone’s attention turned toward his upcoming new album, Harder Than Ever. On Wednesday night (May 16), he posted the tracklist for it on his Instagram to give us an idea of the production and guest features.
The 17-track project features Young Thug, Moneybagg Yo, Starlito, Gunna, Lil Uzi Vert, Hoodrich Pablo Juan and Offset. It will also contain the track “Yes Indeed” — known briefly as “Pikachu” — featuring Drake. Production will include beats from Southside, Tay Keith, Wheezy, Quay Global, Turbo, DJ Durel, Earl the Pearll and more.
Although he’s only been rapping for a little over a year, Lil Baby has already been in the good graces of OVO and the Atlanta rap scene with some help from his management company, Quality Control.
According to a Noisey interview, one of QC’s co-founders, Pee, has known Lil Baby since he was a teenager and always believed he could turn into something special.
