UPDATE: J. Cole and his Dreamville fam are in the giving spirit. While Revenge of the Dreamers 2, their second compilation albumwas set to drop Dec. 11, the team released it Monday night – but not before the lead lyricist emailed three lucky fans the fresh LP about an hour before it officially hit the Interweb. Don’t you love it when Christmas comes early?!

12/09/2015: On Sunday night, Dreamville fans far and wide were all dialing the same number, after J. Cole and members of his team including Omen and Cozz simultaneously tweeted “1-800-88-DREAM.”

While some were greeted with a busy tone or funny voicemail message featuring the North Carolina emcee, others were lucky enough to actually talk to him and his manager Ibrahim Hamad.

Can we say hotline bling?!

But the post was more than just an opportunity to hear from the rapper. It was also an announcement.

If you copped the team’s compilation album Revenge of the Dreamers last year, you may have recognized those digits from the album artwork.

Put two and two together, and you get Revenge of the Dreamers II.

Clever, right?!

While the sequel, which will house Bas and Cole’s latest banger “Night Job,” isn’t available quite yet, you can pre-order it before its Dec. 11 release date.

And after you add the record to your playlist, watch J. Cole Forest Hills Drive: Homecoming when it premieres on HBO Jan. 9.
