HNHH TIDAL Wave: Dreamville, Jaden & Post Malone Drop Solid Efforts

There are few artists that command the attention the entire hip-hop community whenever they decide to drop new music. When J. Cole and all his Dreamville signees linked up in Atlanta this year to hit the studio with dozens high-rank rappers and producers, our curiosity was piqued. When our very own Mitch Findlay attended the sessions to speak exclusively with JID and EarthGang, there was a sense that what would come the ROTD3 conferences would be special. Finally, the project arrived last week and it did not disappoint. Each week, our staff picks their favourite songs the last few weeks and as you’ll notice from the new edition the TIDAL Wave playlist, Dreamville absolutely took over.

The majority our staff members ended up selecting at least one song from Revenge the Dreamers 3 for this week’s playlist with “Sacrifices” and “Costa Rica” being two the most praised. Jaden Smith also has a heavy presence this time around. His new album ERYS is insanely raw, showing the young artist at his best thus far. In addition to “Again” and “NOIZE” with Tyler, The Creator, all four intro tracks were added to TIDAL Wave in succession. Freddie Gibbs kept many his spots from last week with Westside Gunn also earning some love from Devin, Paul, Aron and Mitch.
