Beyond the bevy of global hits he’s written, The-Dream is renowned for serving up many a controversial quote.
However, the star’s candor is equally refreshing when simply sharing his thoughts on the industry he’s come to dominate.

As renown as The-Dream has become for the hits that flow from his pen, he has – in parallel – become notable for his controversial soundbites.
The latest sees the star, real name Terius Nash, once again talking record sales.
Despite being ridiculed by some for the sales of his newest album ‘IV Play’ (which to date has sold less than 50,000 copies — since May), the ‘Umbrella’ writer is not shying away from the topic. Indeed, building on his recent defence of his own numbers, the 36-year-old waxed philosophical on the unique roll-out of Jay-Z‘s ‘Magna Carta Holy Grail’; roll-out which saw one million copies of the surprise project made available for free to Samsung phone users three days before its “general” release today.
According to Mr Nash, the unconventional approach to the promotion of Jigga’s LP is genius because “album sales are so 1992″.
His words came during a recent interview with Diddy’s Revolt TV. Check out a clip below, peep our two cents, and let us know if you agree with Dream after the jump…
