Music biz news comes in via the official press release announcing The-Dream's new position as the V.P. of A&R at Def Jam Records. He will be signing new talent to the label and producing tracks for the label's artists as well. Below: his quotable and an unrelated GIF of Ichiro's awesome swipe of home on a base-hit earlier tonight.
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!’
Teaser track to break ADII's (Andrew Davis II) silence since his last release "My Dream The Mixtape".

This track was laced by Chicago producer Mr. Hyde and singer D. Train. Enjoy.
Small City x Big Dreams is Dylan Williams highly anticipated sophomore project, and the first look into his own personal style of music. The reason for the name of the project is due to Williams being from Toledo, Ohio which is a very "Uknown" city when it comes to hip hop/ rap music and his dreams of one day making it out, not just making it minor and becoming satisfied. Hosted by Dj Capcom & Dj Logikal, also presented by "Believe The Hype" apparel and "Blumouth". Now give it a listen for yourself!
