Dreamville fans can rejoice.
J.Cole hopes to release the project in April, he shared in a YouTube chat with fans before the release of the video for “Middle Child” on Monday (Feb. 25). Hopping on just an hour before the video hit the web, Cole announced his plans to chat with fans.
Of course, some technical difficulties made the chat pretty comical when Cole first started but after getting the hang of it, he shared how “Middle Child” was shot in Georgia and directed by fellow North Carolina rapper King Mez.
He also explained how he needed to take a break from touring after his successful KOD Tour and sets at festivals like JMBLYA and the Wireless Festival. But fans got a treat as the rapper dropped more details on the release of Revenge of The Dreamers III.
“ROTD is being finished right now, post-production s**t,” he said. “Tracking out songs, sequencing then editing, then we gotta mix. We’re shooting for April.”
April also happens to be when the Dreamville Festival will take place at Dorothea Dix Park in Raleigh, North Carolina on April 6. The inaugural fest was postponed from it’s intended date in September because of Hurricane Florence.
The recording sessions for ROTD3 was a sight to see as rappers and producers like T.I. DJ Khaled, Ludacris, Akon, Rapsody, Dreezy, Big KRIT, Childish Major and many more were apart of the week-long recording session.
