J. Cole's Dreamville team has expanded. On Sunday evening, a two-minute video was uploaded to the official Dreamville YouTube page featuring Atlanta rapper J.I.D of Spillage Village, with the description:
New Dreamville artist J.I.D project The Never Story coming soon.
The video also features Cole riding around in J.I.D's Pontiac, a car he says has been through his ups and downs. “It’s been through every phase of my life, since I got kicked out of college to pursuing rap and shit and having to drive out of state to do shows or driving to the studio every day,” J.I.D says.
Cole has been a supporter of Spillage Village in the past, working with the collective on their recent project Bears Like This Too Much. Clearly he was impressed with J.I.D in particular, who now joins the ranks of Bas, Cozz, and more. It's unclear at this time if all of Spillage Village will be involved with Dreamville at some point.
The last time Dreamville signed a new artist was back in December of 2015, when both Lute and Ari Lennox joined the label. We haven't heard much from Lute since, while Lennox released her Pho EP back in October.
