Anyone nostalgic for the mixtape era of hip-hop has been eating good this past year. First up, Tyler, The Creator recruited DJ Drama to add a layer of integrity to his stellar 2021 album Call Me If You Got Lost.
Next came Dipset member Jim Jones who earlier this year released the lowkey underrated Gangsta Grillz: We Set the Trends. If three makes a trend then J.Cole is making it official because today he and his Dreamville label mates have shared D-Day: A Gangsta Grillz Mixtape.
D-Day: A Gangsta Grillz Mixtape arrives ahead of the 2022 Dreamville Festival, which takes place from April 2-3 in Raleigh, North Carolina. The line-up includes WizKid, Kehlani, Lil Baby, Lil Wayne, and Fivio Goreign alongside Dreamville artists Ari Lennox, J.I.D., Bas, and Cole himself.
J Cole and his label have previously shared joint project Revenge of the Dreamers III. Last year, Cole released The Off-Season.
