NBA Star James Harden Attached To Voice of the Heroes
According to a press release, Brooklyn Nets superstar James Harden played a massive part in the album’s actual creation. A portion of the LP actually came together in Harden’s recording studio.
NBA superstar James Harden is credited as an executive producer of The Voice Of The Heroes, as he was played a role in the inception of the project and Lil Baby spent considerable time in Harden’s studio to record. Harden and Baby’s friendship was largely made known by the now-infamous video of Harden’s generous “honey bun” gift at Lil Baby’s birthday celebration in December. Harden also previewed snippets of the album on Instagram earlier this week, giving fans another taste of what the album had in store.
