J. Cole’s Dreamville label and collective had a riotous 2019, dropping the sprawling 18-track compilation project, Revenge of the Dreamers III, as well as sharing Ari Lennox’s debut album Shea Butter Baby and EarthGang’s major-label debut album, Mirrorland. After finishing the year with a Grammy nomination for the compilation album, Dreamville is back with a new single pack titled 1/16, which features new material from Ari Lennox and EarthGang.
The release includes Lennox’s sultry, jazz-filled R&B tune “Bussit,” as well as the gritty psychedelic rap cut “Still Up” from the Atlanta hip-hop duo consisting of Johnny Venus and Doctor Dot. The latter also features TDE’s Reason, who lends his bars on the track’s second verse. Both singles will purportedly be incorporated in the forthcoming deluxe version of Revenge of the Dreamers III, which will feature new material from J. Cole, J.I.D., and more.
While we wait for the deluxe album, stream “Bussit” and “Still Up” below.
