J. Cole is at least one step closer to gifting the world new music, as the 33-year-old tweeted on Wednesday night (Jan. 16) that the “Revengers sessions are done.”
Cole is referring to the third volume of the Revenge of the Dreamers series that he began in 2014 under his imprint Dreamville Records imprint. His tweet read in full: “The Revengers sessions are done thank you to every artist and producer that came through. I love y’all, that s— was beautiful. Next step, finish the songs and let the [world] feel em.”

Just last Saturday (Jan. 12), the rapper tweeted insight into how the sessions were going. “Shed tears tonight writin’ a verse shit was beautiful,” he wrote. “Revenge sessions going down in history,” with a heart emoji.
The Revenge sessions began on Jan. 6 and took place entirely in Atlanta. Cole has been keeping fans updated on social media since Jan. 6, when the rapper posted a digital flyer for the sessions: “Your presence and participation is requested for the recording sessions of the upcoming compilation album Revenge of the Dreamers III. Please reach out to your Dreamville rep to coordinate travel and lodging.”
So far, Wale, Ludacris, Akon, T.I., DJ Khaled, Smokepurpp and Vince Staples have all been rumored to join the sessions.
Cole, of course, is an artist famously uninterested in features – even telling Billboard in his September 2018 cover story that he is down with being collaborative but not “ultra collaborative.” However, the rapper’s manager, Ibrahim Hamad, tweeted that there are at least “124 songs/ideas” that came out of the Revenge of the Dreamers III sessions. Inherently, Cole will have no choice but to pick the best songs for the final project.
