J. Cole and manager Ibrahim confirmed that presence of Rick Ross, Wale, T.I., Vince Staples, K Camp, Ski Mask The Slump God, Reason, and Westside Gunn as contributing with vocal arrangements. That list doesn’t even include the Dreamville regulars already earmarked for the compilation with “reserved seating.” The list of producers submitted to ROTD III is nothing to scoff at either; ChaseTheMoney, T-Minus, Kenny Beats, Tay Keith, OG Parker, and Supah Mario being the early frontrunners, barring any surprises.
So yes, grounds for an emotional outbreak are readily apparent; this LP is going to be BIG ONE. Just this morning, J. Cole kept his fans abreast via Twitter by purporting that a verse he’d written overnight had reduced him to tears. Within the same line break, Cole then professes the historical weight of Revenge of the Dreamers III project, a proclamation met with very little resistant on the social media front. For what it’s worth, can you see Revenge of the Dreamers III topping the all-time best compilation records, the likes of which include Rawkus: Soundbombing II, D.I.T.C (self-titled), Disturbing Tha Peace (self-titled), and Ryde or Die Vol. 1 & 2?
