Bas — Dreamville

The son of Sudanese parents, Bas was raised in Paris until the age of eight, when his family moved to Jamaica, Queens. He didn’t start rapping until 2010, and that was on a lark, after he was coerced by a friend.

Touring with Cole fostered the fledgling rapper’s development as a performer, while mixtape releases such as Quarter Water Raised Me and Quarter Water Raised Me II elevated his profile.

Cole signed Bas to Dreamville releasing Last Winter, jokingly referred to as “An album from a n*gga who ain’t got alotta fans yet”. It was released as a digital download and a CD in April 2014.

Manager and music executive Ibrahim Hamad takes us on his long journey from meeting a then-unknown rapper named J.Cole in college to becoming his manager to helping him build a label, a festival and a media company as partners. Modest and soft spoken, for Cole’s entire career Hamad has balanced friendship and business, acting as a sounding board, idea man, and relentless executor. And he learned how to do it all while on the job. In this episode he explains how he gets the best out of J.Cole, the pressure he puts on himself, and his vision for the future of Dreamville.
