After an impressive six-year run with Def Jam, it looks like The-Dream has parted ways with the house that Rick Rubin and Russell Simmons built. Taking to his Instagram, The-Dream put up the Def Jam logo with the following message: “I will miss this logo. It all started here! Love Everything that I achieved there, EXODUS THE-DREAM #exodusthedream.”
While no other details have been revealed, the singer/songwriter went on to reminisce on his highlights with the major label. From penning Rihanna’s “Umbrella” to the release of each of his solo albums.
Creatively engaged and tried to beat Love Hate into submission.
Under appreciated and unfinished! When no one would turn in a Album that year. We did, it was a grave mistake. But I am proud of my work regardless. To much EGO.
Creativity! My own Time my own Way. Just me and spat my Engineer at the Time. No label at All! Perfect
The shareholders version of 1977.
Freedom! EXODUS THE-DREAM
