Bas stops by the studio to talk about his album ‘Milky Way’ and what we should expect on Revenge Of The Dreamers lll.
With Dreamville quickly making an ascend to the forefront of hip-hop, Bas comments on the recent notoriety and success that he has experienced, as well as for his entire label of peers.
I think it’s just years of like being consistent and doing this [interviews] and going on the road, you know what I mean. Building your core fan base, putting out solid projects. Everyone is a believer in that, and you know how we build our fan base. You’re right though. There’s definitely a tide turning, I feel it. Just as far as how much attention we’re garnering now. And, I think it’s just the amount of success, whether it’s me, JID, Ari Lennox, EarthGang, you’re seeing a lot of our acts step out on their own. I think everything is clicking up.
Speaking on the current state of more echelon rappers seeing themselves in beef conversations like Soulja Boy verses Drake, J Cole allegedly taking subliminal shots at Kanye in “Middle Child”, Bas says that more influential emcees in hip hop don’t have to speak on beefs because their music speaks for those instances. Bass tells the Morning show,”Those dudes are kind of driven by what they say. That’s where they garner a lot of their attention. Where as, in I think Cole is always going to be known for his music.”
Peep what Bas has to say about a possible Cole and Cardi B collab, what has driven the rapper this far in the career and what we all can expect to hear from the Dreamville camp on the much anticipated Revenge of The Dreamers III below.
