J. Cole & Dreamville – D-Day: A Gangsta Grillz Mixtape (Album Stream)

Start listening

D-Day is an undiluted showcase for Dreamville’s very dynamic roster, providing plenty of space for MCs like Bas, Lute, Cozz, Omen, and EARTHGANG to bar up, making time for Ari Lennox to cosplay as young Mary J. Blige (“Coming Down”), and then allowing the big boss man J. Cole to go straight savage on the gleefully nihilistic “Freedom of Speech.”

The guest verses here are just as rewarding as they are surprising, and include sets from A$AP Ferg, 2 Chainz, Young Nudy, and long under-regarded LA gangsta rap traditionalist G Perico.
