THE SCHOOL OF COLE……
6th July 2019
Imagine 10 days to record a project with a bunch of talented musicians in one building!
Sounds like a mission and if anyone could do it, J Cole would be that guy. He has always been very connected with the real world even with all the incredible success. Someone that adores the making the music part but also giving others the opportunity to do the same.
Dreamville is his label and Cole has signed a bunch of ecelectic super talented musicians, J.I.D, Earth Gang, Ari Lennox, Cozz, Bass and Lute.
What’s special about this latest project isn’t just the fact he recorded the whole thing in 10 days but the fact he invited a bunch of new undiscovered producers and artists to join the jam sessions. Giving the same opportunity to his own acts as the ones who are currently still out here independent wanting to get discovered. Some of the new names to check out include Buddy, Guapdad 4000, Young Nudy, DaVionne and Mez.
It truly was the best one wins, which is a little scary for some but for most a chance to show their skills and succeed.
A film has been made documenting the process directed by David Peters, written by Matt Carter & Scott Lazer. The behind the scenes shows the whole process, it’s super interesting, inspiring and also reminds you there truly are no rules in the pursuit of your dreams.
Also most importantly it makes you want to press play on the compilation Revenge of the Dreamers III. The album features a ton of well known artists also including Vince Staples, Ty Dolla $ign, Ski Mask, Kendrick Lamar and T.I.
