There’s only be a few weeks left of the year and J. Cole isn’t done yet.
Last night (December 6), the rapper took to Twitter to post the cryptic phone number 1-888-88-DREAM, as did his Dreamville members Bas, Omen, Elite and Cozz. Prompting followers to dial-in, fans were greeted with a voicemail from Cole telling a "yo momma" joke and that the mailbox was full, but a few lucky callers were able to get through and chat with him and his manager.

The nine-track project from Cole and his companions, including the recently released song “Night Job,” is available for pre-order on iTunes.
