Written by rickyramon on February 19, 2019
While performing a Dreamville show during NBA All-Star weekend, the “MIDDLE CHILD” rapper, who also headlined the annual basketball event’s halftime show, previewed two new tracks seemingly off his forthcoming album, Revenge of The Dreamers III. The first song Cole played for the crowd was one his manager Ibrahim “IB” Hamadhad teased back in January.
However, for his Sunday (February 17) show the “KOD” rapper allowed the audience to hear a lot more of the track, which also features Lute. The second song J played for the crowd was one he’s never played for the public. While he didn’t reveal the song’s name, he played a cut of the song that features J.I.D.
As fans know, The “1985” rapper dropped his new single “Middle Child” last month, after announcing that the recording of his highly-anticipated album, Revenge of The Dreamers III, was a wrap following a 10-day recording session. “The Revengers sessions are done thank you to every artist and producer that came through I love y’all, that sh*t was beautiful,” he tweeted. “Next step, finish the songs and let the 🌎 feel em.”
Nearly all of hip-hop showed up to be a part of the historic creation of ROTD3. Upwards of 100 artists and producers attended Cole’s recording sessions (and that number doesn’t even include Cole’s Dreamville artists). Some of the big names invited were: DJ Khaled, Wale, Ludacris, Rick Ross, T.I.,6lack, K Camp,Young M.A, Swizz Beatz, and Vince Staples.
Even before completing the recording sessions, which took place in Atlanta, Georgia from January 6-16, Cole reflected on his historic gathering of artists, writing on Twitter: “Shed tears tonight writin a verse sh*t was beautiful. Revenge sessions going down in history ❤️.”
