J. Cole and his Dreamville team dropped a 29-minute documentary on Tuesday showing how the studio sessions for the creation of Revenge of the Dreamers III scheduled to drop on July 5. The nearly half-hour video shows the Dreamville team of J. Cole, Bas, Ari Lennox, Earthgang, J.I.D., and more in the studio with producers both in house and abroad working on the album in various studios.
This time around, instead of keeping everything in house, J. Cole recruited out of camp artists like T.I., Mike Will Made it, and Vince Staples to work with the young producers and artists who rarely get an opportunity to work with mainstream talent. “Things like this would do more for music,” J.Cole said in the video. “Things like this empower them, it gives them a shot.”
Mentioned in the documentary, Revenge 3 was recorded within a 10-day window to accommodate artists who may have had scheduling conflicts.
The first Dreamville project dropped in 2014, and since then Cole and his team have added new artists like Ari Lennox, Cozz, J.I.D. and Earthgang to the mix in what is their most anticipated compilation project to date.
Four new tracks have already dropped from Part 3 including ‘Got me,’ ‘Down Bad,’ released two weeks ago and ‘Lambotruck’ and ‘Costa Rica’ released on Monday.
