The Dream Will Release Free Album

August 4, 2011

Just when it seemed The Recession and High Unemployment Rates were bearing down on us even stronger than before, Terius Nash also known as The Dream has decided to work pro bono. The Dream is planning on releasing a free album. (If you’re not sure if you read that right I’ll say it again.) The Dream is planning on releasing a completely FREE album on August 31st, 2011.

Somewhere I know the hackers and leakers aren’t to thrilled with The Dream’s decision to take them out of the free music loop, but nonetheless his fans ought to be excited. The Dream announced via Twitter his 10 track EP is entitled Terius Nash Est. 1977.  Apparently his label bosses are not enthused by the idea of one of their most consistent and established artists giving away a free album, so as one of the ways of not breeching his current contract he is releasing the album under his given name, Terius Nash.

“BTW NO ONE AT DEFJAM IS HAPPY ABOUT A FREE ALBUM LOL…. they are trying to stop it!,” via Twitter.

Not one to avoid any controversy The Dream has already released the album cover for his upcoming freebie, and its safe to say it resembles a certain other Def Jam duo’s album cover.

It’s unfortunate that contract disputes often hinder artists from releasing the music they would like and often derail careers. But on the bright side it has created a musical universe where artists find other creative ways to send their music out to the masses. And while The Dream is still under contract with “The Man” he says his fourth official album is still set to be released at an unknown time later this year.

According to Nash the album will be released via his website You can check there for the track listings on August 20th.
