J. Cole’s Dreamville label has been sharing compilations from its artists since 2014. The third, titled Revenge Of The Dreamers III, was announced back in January, and features vocals from Bas, Cozz, Omen, Lute, Ari Lennox, EarthGang, and J.I.D. According to the album’s Wiki page, over 100 artists were invited to the recording sessions along with big-name producers such as Mike Will Made It, DJ Khaled, and Swizz Beatz.
We’ve already heard four singles from the compilation. The first two were “Down Bad,” which counts verses from Cole, J.I.D, Bas, EARTHGANG, and Young Nudy, and “Got Me,” which features Ari Lennox, Omen, Ty Dolla $ign, and Dreezy. A second pair was shared earlier this week: “Lambo Truck” features verses from Cozz, Reason, and Childish Major, while “Costa Rica” features Bas, J.I.D., Smokepurpp, Ski Mask The Slump God, Guapdad 4000, Reese LAFLARE, Jace, Mez, and Buddy. Middle Child,” which is the highest charting single of J. Cole’s career, is on Revenge Of The Dreamers III as well.
The previously unannounced feature credits are Vince Staples, DaBaby, T.I., Saba, Maxo Kream, Smino, Lute, Zoink Gang, Key!, Yung Baby Tate, Davionne, Baby Rose, Mereba, Deane Hitchcock, and St. Beauty. Kendrick Lamar makes an uncredited appearance on the opening track.
Shortly before the drop J. Cole tweeted a statement:
Revenge album dropping 2nite. Know that this album represents community and the unheard unsung artist that fight and bleed daily to be felt. There will be someone you never heard of on this album. Look them up and support them if they resonate with you. A follow goes a long way. Same goes for the producers that go unheard and make beats all day every day hoping to cut through. To the producers and artists that came through but didn’t make the album, you are there in spirit. Thank you for your presence, the energy of those sessions was the most magical. Thank you to Every artist on Dreamville for allowing me to be a part of your journey and in turn inspiring me and making me proud constantly. I’m proud of y’all for this album.
