About Dreamville Records

Established by Jermaine Cole, better known as J. Cole, the Grammy-nominated artist and producer, Dreamville (Interscope Records) is a collective come record label known for its mastery of non-traditional approach to music and a mission to empower the culture while shifting narratives. Home to some of today’s most exciting voices such as J.I.D, Bas, Ari Lennox, EARTHGANG, Lute, Omen and Cozz, it garners a cult like fan base across the nation and globally. 2019 started off with a bang for Dreamville with its “Dreamers Sessions” making viral news and headlines across the internet, its success continued with a noisy takeover at NBA All Stars in Cole’s home state of North Carolina with pop up shops selling exclusive pieces and Cole performing the All Star halftime show. The southern state got a double dose of Dreamville for the inaugural Dreamville Festival — which packed out the legendary Dorothea Dix Park in Raleigh, NC of over 40,000 fans — hosting live music from Dreamville artists as well as special guests like 21 Savage, Nelly, Teyana Taylor and more. Satiating the thirst for new music came the fiery track from J. Cole in “Middle Child” — now certified triple platinum — that kickstarted a monumental countdown to the label’s highly anticipated project Revenge of The Dreamers III (now also certified platinum). The momentus album went on to receive critical acclaim and Grammy nominations including “Best Rap Album” and “Best Rap Performance” for lead single “Down Bad.”  The sessions, which spanned across multiple nights, birthed a body of music that transcends what happened at Tree Sound studios — where some of music’s brightest stars came together to quite simply; create.

Deante’ Hitchcock – Alone

Grammy-nominated Atlanta rapper Deante’ Hitchcock released “Alone,” his new single out now via ByStorm Entertainment/RCA Records. The slow cut, driven by the sensuous strum of guitar strings, finds Deante’ weighing the risks of letting his guard down for a potential love interest or whether they are both better off alone.

“We’re so busy trying to be understood we forget how to be understanding,” said Deante’. “Everybody’s trying to figure this thing out, but it’s so hard, man. On one end, it’s like I’m better off alone, so I don’t have to deal with anyone else’s shit, but it’s also like damn, I’m better off alone to not have to deal with my shit either. But I’m trying, ya know.”

The latest in a run of relationship-driven releases set to come from Deante’ this year, “Alone” follows his Valentine’s Day-themed EP Everyday The 14th in February, which received critical acclaim. Featured by XXL, Hypebeast, HipHopDX, Okayplayer, and more as one of the ‘Best New Releases of the Week,’ Lyrical Lemonade praised the project, noting that it “further solidifies Deante’ Hitchcock’s immense skill and versatility as an artist,” while The Source called the EP a “tight, solid listen for returning fans and newcomers alike.” 

Last week, Deante’ also announced the launch of The Mother God Project in partnership with local Atlanta nonprofit Access to Capital for Entrepreneurs Inc. (ACE) Women’s Business Center. Powered by Deante’, The Mother God Project will provide assistance to 100 women within the community in order to successfully launch their own businesses. The selected participants will each have the opportunity to obtain their own LLCs within Atlanta, in addition to receiving one-on-one coaching and training.

About Deante’ Hitchcock

Introspective. Talented. Lyricist. These are just a few words to describe Grammy-nominated Atlanta artist Deante’ Hitchcock. After dropping out of Georgia Southern University, Deante’ decided that rap was his only option and began working harder than ever by releasing mixtapes and videos that created an undeniable buzz. His witty, charismatic social media freestyle videos generated attention, leading him to open for acts such as Lil Uzi Vert and Yo Gotti, and eventually led to a recording deal with Mark Pitts’ ByStorm Entertainment. 

With several impressive EPs under his lyrical belt (Good, So Much for Good Luck, Just A Sample, Just A Sample 2), in 2019, Deante’ secured a highly coveted spot on the Grammy-nominated J. Cole and Dreamville compilation album, Revenge Of The Dreamers III, which is currently RIAA-certified Platinum. He released his debut album BETTER on ByStorm Entertainment/RCA Records in 2020, featuring the single “How TF” feat. 6LACK and collaborations with JID, Young Nudy, Miguel, and St. Beauty. Following suit with the deluxe version of BETTER later that year, which featured appearances from Guapdad 4000, Kenny Mason, Ro James, and more, the project solidified Deante’ as a must-watch artist within the next wave of Southern rap, garnering critical acclaim and ‘Best of 2020’ placements across Complex, NPR, XXL, and UPROXX.

Deante’ Hitchcock – Everyday the Fourteenth

Grammy-nominated Atlanta rapper Deante’ Hitchcock released his latest EP, Everyday the 14th, out now via ByStorm Entertainment/RCA Records

An explorative journey of love and the dynamics of relationships, Everyday the 14th ebbs and flows across genres and influences, from the ’70s retro-funk-inspired opening interlude of “You Thought Wrong” to the seductive, late-night production of “Neck Up”and the melodic R&B stylings of “Eyes On Me” and “Don’t Say.” Championing the next round of rising artists by tapping up-and-comers such as singer-songwriter Bairi and rappers Chris Patrick and Dende for features, Everyday the 14th is centered by Deante’s signature Southern rap sound and quick-witted lyricism, culminating in a multi-faceted body of work that examines love in its many forms. 

“This EP is about not taking relationships, situationships, or whatever you’re in at the moment too seriously,” says Deante’ of the project. “Those times are fun, man, let it be that. It’s not always love, but sometimes it is. Only way to find out is to find out, right? This year a lot of my music is gonna be about finding out.”

Everday the 14th Tracklist

1. “You Thought Wrong”

2. “Neck Up” (feat. Bairi & Dende)

3. “Eyes On Me” (feat. DaVionne & JaelSpeaks)

4. “Don’t Say” (feat. Chris Patrick & ELHAE)
