Dreamville x J. Cole x Interscope?
Dreamville, one of hip-hop's most innovative and creative collectives and the force behind the phenomenal success of rapper J. Cole, whose first two albums hit No. 1 across the charts, has formed an exclusive label with Interscope Records. Dreamville also announced that its first artist signing will be Bas, who has been supporting Cole on tour.
"Dreamville celebrates the sort of grassroots, out-of-the-box approach to connecting artists to their fans that can help move the music industry into the future. We are very pleased to welcome Dreamville into the Interscope family," says Joie Manda, President, Urban Music, Interscope Records.
Cole and business partner Ibrahim Hamad launched Dreamville in 2007, before Cole became the first signing for Jay-Z's Roc Nation two years later; Cole remains an artist with Roc Nation.
Since then, the Dreamville team has been responsible for successes on record, on stage, on the Internet, and beyond. Cole is a magna cum laude graduate of St. John's University with a major in communications and minor in business.
"We're honored and excited to partner with Interscope Records, a legendary and powerful force in the music industry," commented J. Cole. "We're ready to add to the history."
