What better way to start a new year than with an album announcement from one of the most conscious rappers of our generation? OK, there are quite a few most likely, but be blessed because J. Cole has signaled to Dreamville loyalists that he and his label artists been cooking up some heat.
"???????????? Squad," the Grammy-nominated artist captioned on his Instagram page below what appeared to be a picture of a flyer to attend upcoming recording sessions.
According to The Fader, the upcoming Revenge of the Dreamers III will be the third collaborative album from the label Dreamville since releases in 2014 and 2015. Dreamville artists JID, EarthGang, Ari Lennox, Bas, Cozz, Lute and Omen are all slated to be featured which was confirmed via Instagram.
"Your presence and participation is requested for the recording sessions of the upcoming compilation album 'Revenge of the Dreamers III,'" the Instagram poster read.
Ibrahim Hamad, J. Cole's manager, confirmed the compilation project would take place over ten days, from January 6 to January 16.
"We got 10 days to try and make this Revenge of the Dreamers III album. Think we can do it?" Hamad wrote.
