J. Cole has proven that patience pays off. The MC/producer has collected his props with four consecutive #1 albums, following years of cultivating a small following into a multi-platinum empire. Cole has built Dreamville around artists who can relate. One such act is Omen. The Chicago, Illinois native is a MC and producer/keyboardist, whose career stems back to the top of the decade on the mixtape Delayed. Since 2011’s Afraid of Heights, Omen has been running with Cole.

One of the bigger looks was in 2015, care of the Revenge of the Dreamers II compilation, which was backed by Interscope Records. The song “48 Laws” expresses exactly who Omen is and how he sees the world.

Gladly, that song, assisted by Social Experiment’s Donnie Trumpet gets a visual, nearly two years later. It is a welcomed look for Omen, who is not to be confused with the 20-year vet’ known for working with Roc-A-Fella of the same name. This Omen’s debut, Elephant Eyes, is still reportedly on its way.
