Dreamville Records is continuing to grow into a full-fledged media company. The music label, founded by Jermaine “J.” Cole and Ibrahim Hamad in 2007, is moving into other areas of entertainment.
According to Variety, Dreamville is launching Dreamville Ventures and Dreamville Studios. Damien Scott was named president of Dreamville. Candace Rodney will serve as Executive Vice President of Dreamville and President of Dreamville Studios.
“Dreamville has always been a mom-and-pop operation with grand ambitions and ideas that extend far beyond music. The hiring of Damien and Candace not only expands our family business with two of the smartest and most capable executives in the industry but allows us to take a massive leap towards turning those big ideas into reality,” said Cole.
The record label division of Dreamville includes a roster with JID, EarthGang, Ari Lennox, Bas, Cozz, Lute, and Omen. Dreamville has released numerous individual albums from its acts as well as three Revenge of the Dreamers compilations. 2019’s ROTD3 debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 chart and earned Platinum status from the RIAA.
