The-Dream dropped his inspirational new single, "Black" out of the blue following the infamous Donald Sterling controversy earlier this year, and it looks like he's got yet another surprise up his sleeve.
The-Dream hasn't had it easy these past few months. After domestic violence allegations were filed back in early May by his baby momma Lydia Nam, the Radio Killah was forced to turn himself in to NYPD for questioning before posting bail at a hefty $20,000.
After The-Dream announced a few months back that he was leaving Def Jam recordings to bring his signature brand of R&B elsewhere, rumors began circulating that the hit-maker would be relocating to frequent collaborator Jay-Z's Roc Nation imprint.
Things aren't looking too good for The-Dream. As we reported on yesterday, the r'n'b singer posted bail at $20,000, after he turned himself into the police for questioning centered around domestic violence allegations from his ex-girlfriend Lydia Name.
More details have rolled in concerning The-Dream's on-going legal drama. As we reported on yesterday, the r'n'b singer turned himself into the cops for allegedly attacking his ex-girlfriend Lydia Nam. The singer was wanted by the police for questioning, and voluntarily walked into the NYPD precinct.
The-Dream does not come across as the most violent person, at least in his music, which is mainly about love and baby-making, however there are some heavy claims coming from his baby mama right now that allege the r'n'b singer was abusive to her.
Terius Youngdell Nash is very well-known in the R&B world as a producer/singer/writer. He's worked with just about everyone in the business, including artists such as Jay-Z, Big Sean, Pusha T, 2 Chainz, Fabolous, J.Holiday, Yung Joc & Diddy.
It appears as though The-Dream is leaving Def Jam, where he served not only as an artist but as the Vice President of A&R. Today the talented singer posted a goodbye message on his Instagram announcing his "exodus."
R&B is a genre that seems to be in a constant state of flux. It's certainly very different from what it was 20 years ago - these days, many artists tend to cross over into other genres, causing debate as to what truly constitutes R&B music.
