  1. What are the lyrics to Lil Baby. & Lil Durk's 'Voice of the Heroes'?

    [Intro: Ariaa]
    TouchofTrent be wildin' with it

    [Verse 1: Lil Durk]
    Missed out on my kids life for a year and I gotta accept it
    Certain days n****s never came to my shows and I felt neglected
    Growin' up, seein' my uncle dyin' in his bed, that shit made me reckless
    Pourin' up and I ain't never sharin' my meds, and I ain't bein' extra
    And I paid like two of my n****s bonds before I bought a necklace
    I done seen my brother stack his bricks up and it look like Tetris
    Havin' real shootout up on the e-way, you can't miss your exit
    Told the b**ch she can't hide the smеll of my cologne, she gotta go change hеr panties
    Take care of your family and them kids 'cause I'm too big on family
    F**k them fast cars, before that shawty 'nem was gon' slide in Camrys
    I'ma get my lawyer an extra dub because it come in handy
    Felt like I'ma vomit off this Perc' 'cause I don't take no

    [Chorus: Lil Durk]
    Voice of the hero
    I'm the voice of the hero
    Voice of the hero
    Voice of the hero
    See, I'm the voice, Baby, he the hero
    Baby, he the hero
    I'm the voice, but Baby, he the hero
    But Baby, he the hero

    [Verse 2: Lil Baby]
    I wasn't even tryna be no idol
    I put n****s on, and all of the sudden they feel entitled
    Put the barbers on 'em, you only get this kit when you got a title
    I'm exhausted, I been workin' shift-to-shift, but I keep fightin'
    Not my fault if I don't miss your likeness
    And I'm still with Ced still
    We the ones, for real, for real
    I just got two hundred for a walk through, I'll still drill
    High-speed chases in a Dodge Stratus, I can still peel 'em
    I be tryna put on a smile for 'em but I don't really feel 'em
    I just spent three-fifty on a Richard for the second time
    I showed all my n****s in the trenches it's a better life
    Never get too big for me to listen, I'll take your advice
    I just told Durk, "We rich forever if we play it right"
    Just keep on bein' the voice, I'll be the hero
    And everything I got is a profit, started with zero
    I can never turn my back on my apartment, that's where I come from
    And I'm just gettin' started, relax, wait 'til I warm up

    [Verse 3: Lil Durk & Lil Baby]
    I done been to jail too many times, it feel like karma
    Everywhere I sleep, I keep my stick, what I need an alarm for?
    Police caught me in the cut, I had to walk out with my arms up
    Ain't too big to pray last minute, I put my palms up
    Yeah, flood my system with these Perkies
    Took the b**ch to eat out at Thirteen, she was squirtin'
    I just cashed out on my b**ch, Celine to match her Birkin
    All this sh*t these b**ches textin' me, just do it in person
    Yeah, I might pop a half an Adderall, I don't like Perkies
    Put the phone on DND, I'm somewhere, ain't no service
    I just slimed a n***a out today but it was worth it
    I switch cars like b**ches switch they purses
    I slow down on features, I do verses if they worth it now
    This sh*t done got deep and, let's be honest, we can't work it out
    Peeped that lately you been actin' funny, wonder what it's about
    This sh*t really in me, hope you never doubt it, on gang

    [Chorus: Lil Durk]
    Voice of the hero
    I'm the voice of the hero
    Voice of the hero
    Voice of the hero
    See, I'm the voice, Baby, he the hero
    Baby, he the hero
    I'm the voice, but Baby, he the hero
    But Baby, he the hero
