EarthGang’s New Video Is For A Song That Prompted J. Cole To Sign Them

EarthGang’s Olu and WowGr8 were scorching hot throughout their 2019 campaign. The Dreamville duo were apart of some of the year’s best and most talked about projects, including J. Cole’s Rap menagerie, Revenge Of The Dreamers III. Recently, Cole and Ibrahim Hamad assisted with the drop of a Director’s Cut of the aforementioned project. Twelve tracks were added to the extended version, three of which were appended with EarthGang’s support. To boot, the MC’s also known as Johnny Venus (Olu) and Doctur Dot (WowGr8) released Mirrorland. Both R.O.T.D.3 and Mirrorland were featured on Ambrosia For Heads’ Top 15 Albums of 2019.

While Mirrorland and Revenge… are unique in and of themselves, one track from the Spillage Village twosome, “Swivel,” was featured on both projects. The record itself is particularly special to the group, as it was one of the first joints EarthGang played for J. Cole before signing to his Dreamville imprint in 2017. Late last year, E.G. performed an impassioned rendition of the forenamed single and their Mirrorland cut, “This Side,” for the “COLORS” video series. Today, Olu and WowGr8 indulge once again, swiveling back to transform their powerful single into a similarly emotive music video.
