#28: Ib Hamad on Dreamville, Working with Friends, Building a Community, and More

Ibrahim Hamad is one of the forces behind some of the best artists of our time, J. Cole, Ari Lennox, Bas, JID and more. He is the co-founder of the label Dreamville that he started with Cole after evolving their college friendship into a business partnership. Ibrahim, also known as, Ib, is Sudanese American, born in Paris, and thanks to his dad’s UNESCO job, lived all over the globe. He ended up in the most diverse county in the world - Queens, New York, where he turned his passion for music (aka putting people onto the great music) into an actual career. He didn’t know where it would take him. And following his intuition, building the right team, and staying true to the dream of Dreamville with J. Cole has led him and his team to building an empire that supports the power of story, community, and connection.
