Dreamville has silently had one of their most impressive years to date in 2021.
J.Cole’s The Off-Season was nominated for Best Rap Album at the 64th Annual Grammy Awards, Ari Lennox and JID continued impressive feature runs ahead of their upcoming albums, Bas’ “The Jackie” achieved Billboard acclaim and Lute offered an introspective full-length effort as well.
While South Central native Cozz is last up to bat for Cole’s collective, he certainly isn’t least by any means — feeling “fortunate” on his new EP Fortunate.
Cozz has been dropping music periodically over the last few years, but has been without a cohesive project since 2018. The seven-song Fortunate reminds listeners of the Dreamville emcee’s premiere pen game that he’s always executed. His last project, Effected, had riveting feature appearances from Kendrick Lamar, J. Cole and Curren$y — further displaying Cozz’s talent and overall skin in the game.
In anticipation of its release Thursday (Dec. 2), Cozz released “Addicted,” a mellow song with introspective bars about his own trials, tribulations and vices. Visuals for the song show him hanging out in the neighborhood with his friends and in the club kicking back.
The title track for this new EP came a month ago, complete with a video of its own. A grateful Cozz sings passionately about the blessings he continues to receive since his career took off.
