Buddy's Harlon & Alondra was a criminally underrated body of work in the overcrowded year of hip-hop album releases that was 2018. Everyone that discussed the Dreamville sessions came out impressed by Friend's output, as some even called him one of the "MVPs" of the entire trip, although he appeared half-way through. Cole, Ari Lennox, EarthGang, J.I.D, Bas, Lute, Prophecy and Dreamville co-founder Ibrahim Hamad have all switched to their profiles to a yellow image with no print.

Dreamville's artists have already been getting the pace considering that 2018 and landing all sorts of features and visitor spots, creating a well-rounded image that has opened the label to reaching a crossway of demographics. Prior to the features from BJ the Chicago Kid, and 6LACK and Ella Mai on Dicaprio 2 and J.I.D.'s features on Mereba's single, Sandstorm, and Ari Lennox's Broke, I would not have considered J.I.D. to top my R&B playlist of crackling fireplace and bearskin rug burners - but sure enough Tiiied" (feat 6LACK & Ella Mai) revealed me the light.
When it comes to the rest of Dreamville, Vengeance of the Dreamers III could likewise be an excellent chance to display some unheard internal partnerships.
