The pair, consisting of Johnny Venus and Doctur Dot, was praised by the rap star in an announcement video.

"When n*ggas think about Atlanta, they think about super trap sh*t," he said. "They think about Future, which Future is the God right now in that world and in that lane, but them kids you seen at that show tonight, them 3,000 kids and then there was thousands more that didn’t make it in, they actually relate more to y’all."

Cole goes on to praise their work ethic, while expressing his belief in them. "These records right here is really painting that picture and giving that vibe," he said. "I hear them sh*ts and I’m like, ‘Damn.’ When you talk about an album that’s gonna impact, I’m hearing more them records. That’s what my heart is telling me when I hear y’all sh*t. I’m like, ‘Damn, these n*ggas can really do it.'"

At press time, its unclear what will be up first from EarthGang.
