You’ve heard the song all week with the NBA season beginning and now you get a matching set of visuals from the Dreamsville squad off of the Revenge of the Dreamers III project as J. Cole, J.I.D., Bas, Earthgang and Young Nudy go retro with “Down Bad.”
After dropping a new song on us for the first time in sixteen years, Gang Starr is back with a video for “Family and Loyalty” featuring J. Cole. Directed by Fab 5 Freddy, clips of the late, great Guru are weaved into a set of visuals where DJ Premier and Guru’s son are dropping jewels off to friends and family while J. Cole can be scene delivering his verse inside a basketball gym.
Although Guru is gone, he will never be forgotten. The legacy of Gang Starr will live forever and DJ Premier has preserved that memory and extended its reach into 2019 with a brand new song titled “Family and Loyalty” that finds previously unreleased Guru vocals over DJ Premier production with a touch of today as J. Cole blesses the song with his presence.
“I never lost faith, or wavered. I still felt it inside of me, it just happened to be nine years later (after Guru’s passing)” Premier says. “We all want the things we want right now, but I am a patient guy. I hung in there and I just kept believing.”
It’s quintessential Gang Starr brought to the masses and J. Cole appearing on the song gives it a very current feel that vibes with the classic Gang Starr sound.
“When it comes to this generation of emcees, ones that are lyrically on the level that Guru was on and someone that he would want to work with; Cole is that guy” Preemo confidently asserted. “When Cole heard the record he got the chills and knew it was a classic.”
Fresh off of Revenge of the Dreamers 3 comes the video for “Sacrifices.” J. Cole, Earthgang, Saba and Smino all represent on
As we await a formal release date for J. Cole and his Dreamville posse’s Revenge of the Dreamers 3, the Carolina emcee dishes off a video for “Middle Child.”
J. Cole and his Dreamville collective recently wrapped up recording Revenge of the Dreamers III. In celebration, J. Cole drops “Middle Child” produced by T-Minus. Just a mild flex before the collaboration album drops.
The good guys over at 2DopeBoyz have decided to compile a mix of all of J. Cole’s 2018 guest appearances into one mix with “Batting 1000.” From Cole riding shotgun with Royce 5’9″ on “Boblo Boat” to his year ending spot on 21 Savage’s “a lot,” it’s clear that Cole had an impressive run as a guest over the calendar year.
J.I.D. dropped off a late entry in the album of the year conversation with DiCaprio 2. Jam packed full of dopeness, one of the standout tracks is his collaboration with J. Cole on “Off Deez.” And now we get the video where the Dreamsville duo gets busy.
Dreamsville spitter J.I.D. has DiCaprio 2 coming in about three weeks. For those of you who have unbelievably slept on him, go on ahead and hit play on his collaboration with J.Cole titled “Off Deez.” DiCaprio drops on November 26th.
The long overdue Carolina connection has come to fruition as Rapsody and J. Cole join forces over 9th Wonder production on “Sojourner.” This joint right here is the truth.
