Too Hard is Atlanta-based rapper Lil Baby's fourth mixtape of 2017, following 2 the Hard Way (with Marlo), the DJ Drama-hosted Harder Than Hard, and debut Perfect Timing. As with previous releases, the mixtape arrives courtesy of Quality Control Music, who began working with Baby after being recommended by Young Thug. While Thugger doesn't appear on Too Hard, his influence is felt, although Baby isn't as boisterous or eccentric. Instead, he focuses on honing his storytelling skills, relaying his chilling, firsthand tales of street violence and drug abuse. Guest MCs include MoneyBagg Yo, Gunna, and Lil Yachty.
