Singer The Dream has announced that he is the new VP of A&R at Def Jam records. Dream is currently in the studio with Rihanna working on her next CD.
“I am committed as I have been previously to bringing the power of belief in the artist back to the forefront. I share a unique view of an artist and as well as the business of music. I, with the help of many others, have ran a successful business for the last five years in the midst of the “Digital Change.” My concentration and effort will be to the artist to succeed in their dreams and goals. I’ve been a part of watching and participating in the success of many great women and men including Beyonce, Rihanna, Jay-Z, Kanye West, Mariah Carey, Celine Dion to name a few. Music means more than just a download, it’s life to the culture and also the people who listen. This is a new exciting yet critical time for music – ‘You Meet Change with Change!’.”
No word on when we will be getting a new CD from The Dream now that he is an executive.
G.O.O.D Music MC Pusha T has signed a deal that will take his musical ventures over to the house that Russel and Rick build. Pusha Ton is the newest member of Kanye’s imprint to sign his name on the Def Jam dotted line.
“Solidifying my first solo venture, G.O.O.D Music/DefJam is my home. That machine with my creativity is gonna make for satisfied hiphop fans,” said Pusha.
Good to see Mr. Thornton steadily moving forward and getting things done.
It seems like Jeezy is trying his hardest to withstand the wave that Ross brought into the game when he dropped the Albert Anastacia mixtape and the Teflon Don CD. It seems like as soon as the mixtape dropped everyone forgot about Jeezy’s Trap Or Die 3 tape. Now Jeezy has never seemed like the type to have to resort to publicity stunts to move units, but ummm…this move was kinda wack to me. Big Meech has already said that he approved the song. His mom says she likes the song…so what else is there to say?!?!?
Could it be that this ‘Beef’ is being manufactured by Def Jam to increase the Teflon Don’s sale and bring Jeezy’s buzz back to life?
I’m not sure the logic behind it all…But I will say that I don’t think that lyrically Jeezy is ready for a battle with The Bawse.
WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT JEEZY THROWIN SHOTS AT RICKY ROZAY?
