J. Cole, together with fellow Dreamville Records‘ artists EARTHGANG, Ari Lennox, J.I.D, Omen, Cozz, Bas, and Lute, present Revenge of The Dreamers III, and it’s nothing but the dreamcompilation we’ve all been waiting for.
Dreamville Records, founded by J. Cole and his manager Ibrahim Hamad, has finally released the next chapter, a long-awaited follow-up to part II(2015). The album also features guest artists Kendrick Lamar, Buddy, Ty Dolls $ign, Vince Staples, Dreezy, and much more greatness.
Revenge of The Dreamers III (ROTD3) is the ultimate euphoria for hip-hop and alternative R&B fans alike, placing listeners within a realm of rapture; an epic line-up of astounding artists, an unrivalled lyrical flow, bustling bars, heavy-hitting hooks, fresh beats, honey-like melodies, and of course, topped off with the quintessential soul samples to have you hypnotised from the very start until end.
This 18-track marvel is simply incalculable; the procured result of both a collaboration and a community of artists that no one other than J. Cole could bring together.
Having been in the rap game for almost a decade, Simmie Sims III, known by his stage name Buddy, finds his signature sound and breaks even with his new debut album Harlan & Alondra, a crafted self-revelation after six years spent in the making, and it’s worth every second.
Buddy, 24, a rising rose from Compton, was just 15-years-old when he first caught the attention of Pharrell Williams. After years in-between the scenes and a chop and change in management to releasing his first EP Idle Time without a record label, the son of a preacher returns true to himself, and here to deliver the Real Life S**t we’ve all been waiting for.
Harlan & Alondra explores the artist’s trying upbringing, ardently fusing contemporary R&B with rap, new age G-Funk and a whole lotta soul, featuring major players Khalid, Ty Dolla $ign, Snoop Dogg and A$AP Ferg, to name a few, and it’s simply sinless.
It’s the ultimate trip down the west coast with “Speechless”, “Young” and “Trouble on Central”, while delivering an empowered tribute to Black History Month with “Black”. With an unmatched “Shine”, Buddy is unquestionably, an artist firmly embedded in his roots.
