This. shit. TUFF. New visuals from the Dreamville Fam.
2 of the best with Cozz and Cole. One of my favorites off Cozz & Effect. Brodies tore this shit to absolute shreds. Was waiting on the video for WAY TOO LONG.
It’s been awesome having Cozz around. Great having new energy. From the first second I met him out in LA I knew he was gonna fit right in. Sure enough, we got a new brother (brothers really, shouts to the Committee). Can’t say enough good things about Cozz. Plus that boy is an absolute MONSTER. Sky’s the limit.
The Dreamville crew sat down and chopped it up with @SaintHeron recently. Shouts to Nia Porter and everyone over at Saint Heron. Appreciate it.
Check it out below:
The South, the Mid-west, and the East and West coasts all collide in rapper J. Cole’s Dreamville Records crew. Founded in 2007, the label is comprised of three up-and-coming artists with their sights set on taking the hip-hop world by storm.
Saint Heron sat down with Bas, the multinational lyricist from Queens, Cozz, the headstrong dreamer from L.A., and Omen, the laid-back “turndown king” from Chicago to talk about their upcoming albums and the label’s collective appeal.

You know when you start making a little noise in the music industry you are supposed to stay cool, calm, and act like you been there before. Basically you can’t ever act like a fan when you meet other people in the industry.
But you have to understand, that shit is fucking hard sometimes. Redman is one of my favorite rappers of all time. Fuck it, not even rappers, just all around human beings. I’m a Jersey kid and even more I’m a North Jersey Essex County kid. Reggie is the God.
So while I’ve seen some wild shit and partied with all my idols as I got to experience Cole’s rise and now Bas, sometimes when I see shit like this, I can’t help but geek out. I used to have posters of Reggie in my room, now I’m watching my best friend perform on the same stage and take pictures like this.
Sometimes you just gotta really appreciate how amazing that is and what you can really accomplish in life.
SXSW and Dreamville Takeover was LOVE. Without question the hottest ticket at SXSW. Line was around the corner for hours (you all are the best people man). If you don’t believe a fiend like me, ask Rolling Stone or better yet, just ask the internet.
Bas shut that shit down like always. As Austin 360 put it:
“With a melodic flow that echoes Cole’s own, Queens emcee Bas was the biggest hit with the crowd and is likely to be the label’s first big breakout. He got the crowd hype with “We Made It” smoked an a Capella and perfectly set the stage for Cole.”
I think a lot of people are finally realizing what we all already knew. Get ready #FIENDS.
If you are new to the party and just heard about that fiend Bas, here are the songs you have been looking for:
