The-Dream just dropped his Love You to Death EP, so I talked to him for a bit for Billboard. It ended up being an awesome, lengthy convo that topically ranged from his theory on why dating sucks for young Black men, taking artistic risks, and why more colleges should have Male Studies courses.
There’s also a bunch of insight on his contributions to Beyonce’s Lemonade, Rihanna’s Anti, Solange’s A Seat at the Table and Kanye West’s The Life of Pablo. Here are some fun (and one not-so-fun) facts from the talk:
- Dream’s a painter! Jay-Z and Beyonce both own Terius Nash originals.
- He wanted to make a Purple Rain-esque movie for his first album Love Hate.
- Solange LOVES “Fancy“!
- He was dumped by his prom date.
