"Revenge of the Dreamers III" is stacked to the brim.
The forthcoming Revenge of the Dreamers III compilation will undoubtedly broaden Dreamville's stranglehold in 2019, by showcasing its core members alongside the 'subjective best' in the game. The first wave of submissions was announced a few days ago, spearheaded by the usual suspects in JID, J. Cole.
Dreamville's president Ibrahim (and J. Cole's manager) has since confirmed the presence of T.I. and Rick Ross on the final draft. It all transpired on Twitter when he responded to Wale's assumption the Rick Ross had a minor stake on RotD III. Ibrahim's assertion was that T.I. was recording in the adjacent room to Rick Ross.
The producer list is massive; among them, Anonxmous, Beam Beam, Big Gator Bossman, Bink!, Black Metaphor, Brian "Malik" Baptiste, Cardiak, Cheese Beatz, Christo, Deputy, Dijon Stylez, D Sanders, DZL, Mike Hector, Needlz, Ducko McFli, Jay Kurzweil, Groove, Elite, Yung Lan, !llmind, Hollywood JB, Kid Hazel, Symbolyc One, Kal Banx, Jetson Made, Meez, Pyrex, Marz Marz, Ricky Felix, as well as Mike WiLL Made-It's very own subcommittee of J-Bo and Pluss, over at EarDrummerz, make up the early entrants.
ChaseTheMoney, who produced JID's "Off Deez" with J. Cole, also added his touch to the album - as did Childish Major, T-Minus, Kenny Beats, Tay Keith, OG Parker, Supah Mario, in some capacity. Invariably, Dreamville's in-house producer Ron Gilmore, figures in the conversation as well, as does Juro "Mez" Davis, the label's go-to engineer. Brilliant Mack, Ced Brown are there to assists in the mixing, DJ Dark Knight with his executive touch.
Ari Lennox will reprise her role as Dreamville's uncontested FLOTUS, flanked by DJ Komari, the disc-jockey she met while in high school. Other Dreamville hopefuls to feature on the compilation include Lute, Cozz (based out of LA), Bas (with DJ Nitrane, his personal disc-jockey), and even EarthGang (comprised of Doctur Dot and Johnny Venus). They will be joined by a list of honorees that include Reese LaFlare, Ski Mask The Slump God, Vince Staples, Wale, Westside Gunn from Shady Records, Young Nudy, Big K.R.I.T., Buddy, Boston's Cousin Stizz, Deanté Hitchcock, K Camp, Luke Bar$, Rapper Big Pooh from Little Brother, and Reason from TDE.
