The Dreamville season has just just begun. If you thought J. Cole’s label’s surprise D-Day: A Gangsta Grillz Mixtape project at the end of last month was amazing, wait till you see what the artists have in store for you over the following few months.
Earlier today (April 12th), R&B queen Ari Lennox (who crushed her cameos on “Blackberry Sap” and “Coming Down”) stated that her highly awaited second album would be released this summer, eliciting a frenzy among fans. When asked about the undisclosed project, she hinted on Twitter, “It’s gifting summer.”
If you don’t think you can wait till the sunniest season to hear more from the Shea Butter Baby hitmaker, don’t worry – she’s only one of the artists appearing on Bas’ new 4-pack EP, which will be released on April 15th.
“Dropping off a summer pack to liven up the spirits,” the rapper tweeted on social media earlier today, advertising his new [BUMP] Pick Me Up project, which has some remarkable features.
While Lennox will perform on “The Others,” Bas will be joined by J. Cole and Lil Tjay on “The Jackie,” Gunna on “Admire Her,” and Galimatias on “Eyes On You.”
Fans were overjoyed to get the good news. “Bro, if there’s one thing Bas is good for, it’s the 4-packs,” remarked one user. “Aside from Cole, Bas is my favorite Dreamville artist,” said another.
