Dreamville is celebrating the first anniversary of their GRAMMY-nominated project Revenge of the Dreamers III with a brand new behind-the-scenes video.

The 10-minute visual features the group of artists during J. Cole‘s 10-day recording camp in January 2020, which was held with a total of 343 artists and producers and resulted in 142 songs. A majority of the footage includes songs that didn’t make it on to the final product, along with a spontaneous one-minute freestyle from Cole himself.

Sharing the video on Twitter, Ibrahim Hamad, Cole’s manager, college friend, business partner and co-owner of Dreamville wrote, “What we did with the sessions and this album will go live forever and I’m forever grateful to have been apart of that but my favorite thing was the ability to use our platform to shine a light on new super talented artist whether they were signed to Dreamville or not.”

The standard edition of Revenge of the Dreamers III featured 18 tracks from 34 artists and 27 producers. It went on to debut at No. 1 and was nominated for Best Rap Album at the 2020 GRAMMYS.

Watch the 10-minute video above.

Elsewhere in music, a Pusha T, Young Thug, Gunna and Pop Smoke collaboration recently surfaced.
