J. Cole and his label Dreamville have understood what hip-hop is. The compilation "Revenge of The Dreamers III" is the proof. The result is an ambitious project for which over a hundred artists (MC's and producers) gathered for ten days last January at Tree Sound Studios in Georgia. The expectation was great and unsurprisingly, "ROTD III" is already announced as one of the major hip-hop albums of 2019. A total of 142 songs were recorded during the studio sessions, and 18 of them were been selected. And even if inevitably, all the artists initially invited did not have the chance to finish on the final track list, this one is very exciting. We find the entire Dreamville team. J. Cole in the lead, but also Bas, J.I.D., Ari Lennox, Cozz, Lute, EarthGang, Omen, and Elite. Also as expected, many guests came to participate. Proof that hip-hop is above all a big family and that it still has good days in front of her. Cole and his family can boast of having redefined the contours of what a compilation should look like in all its splendor. Although the project is a little too long and there are some meh tracks, hip-hop can thank J. Cole and Dreamville for "Revenge of The Dreamers III".
