Stream J. Cole’s Dreamville Festival Live Featuring J.I.D., Rapsody, & More (Video)
2019 has been fruitful thus far for J. Cole, J.I.D., Ari Lennox, EarthGang, Omen, Lute, Bas, Cozz, and the Dreamville team. Earlier this year, the J. Cole’s roster gathered in the studio to host a who’s who of musical talent including Big K.R.I.T., Mike Will Made It, DJ Khaled, Swizz Beatz, Reason, T.I., Rick Ross, 9th Wonder, Benny The Butcher, Buddy, and Wale, among others. The ensemble spent ten days straight writing and recording for the Cole curated album, Revenge Of The Dreamers III. Upon release, it will be the third compilation project from J. Cole’s team. The week-plus, invitation-only “Rap Camp” has excited many Hip-Hop Heads about the project that currently has no confirmed release date.
Today (April 6), marks yet another important date for the Dreamville squad as they enter their first year for their namesake’s music festival, Dreamville Fest, taking place at Dorothea Dix Park in Raleigh, North Carolina. The festival was supposed to kick off its inaugural season last year, but was canceled due to Hurricane Florence. The opening day event features a host of artists from across the country, including a handful Dreamville’s finest. The lineup consists of J. Cole, SZA, Big Sean, 21 Savage, Rapsody, 6LACK, Nelly, Teyana Taylor, Bas, J.I.D, Saba, Davido, Cozz, EarthGang, Ari Lennox, Omen, Lute, and King Mez.
For those who couldn’t make it to North Carolina for the studded event, Tidal has offered a free live stream of the musical gathering. Ibrahim Hamad, president of the label, said the following: “Dreamville Fest is about celebrating a culture of supporting one other and reinvesting in our community. We’re excited to partner with TIDAL to bring this message to a wider audience.” J. Cole, who is an artist and part owner of TIDAL, has worked with the platform previously on the TIDAL X: J. Cole live stream, and has performed at Made In America Festival in 2015 and 2017, respectively.
