Self-proclaimed ‘the most hated artist alive,’ Terius Nash may be often surrounded by controversy, but The-Dream continues to solidify himself as one of music’s unstoppable hitmakers. Known to openly share his thoughts, the singer/songwriter spoke candidly with Vibe about his ex-wife Christina Milian, Ciara’s failed album, Beyonce’s 4, why he’s now the ‘dopest artist alive’ and more.
It’s 12:45 a.m. and The-Dream has just forked down his last bit of calamari at an Upper Eastside red-lit favorite. He’s fed and friendly. But even with a happy belly, R&B’s love-and-lust obsessed virtuoso is still a bit on edge. The midnight munchies arrive just after the Grammy-award-winning songwriter made the king decision to call off his video shoot after a 3-hour+ setup. But that dictation doesn’t make Dream a narcissistic asshole. Really, in-between the f-bombs and braggadocio, Terius Nash is an undeniable and frighteningly unstoppable talent. And get this—he’s also pretty damn nice.
