    Dreamville has followed up the release of Revenge of the Dreamers III with a gorgeous new video for “Sacrifices,” featuring labelmates J Cole and EarthGang’s Olu, with Smino and Saba. 

    The visual, directed by Scott Lazer, David Peters and Chad Tennies, is dedicated to Olu’s late father Milton Ahdwele Fann and “to all those who have passed on,” as the clip explains. It opens with Olu’s mother, dressed in a flowing yellow outfit, standing solemnly in the middle of an abandoned warehouse as Olu sings, “I make sacrifices, bloody sacrifices.” 

    The video later cuts to other parts of the building where Cole, Smino and Saba are at. The men exchange powerful verses of their own, celebrating their wins and reflecting on their losses. “We duel like a small town wager / How I’m the dropout major / Success stories, I favor / Used to cover my scars, out here tryna cover the FADER,” Saba spits. 

    Revenge of the Dreamers III arrived in July and features musicians and producers from Cole’s Dreamville roster and several guests. The LP was preceded by Revenge, a mini-documentary that chronicles the making of the project.
