The Dream Leaves Def Jam


According to his Instagram feed, The Dream is hip-hop’s latest independent act.

The versatile artist announced the breaking news by posting a picture of the record label’s logo, with the following caption: “I will miss this logo. It all started here! Love Everything that I achieved there, EXODUS THE-DREAM #exodusthedream.”

The singer/producer then went on to reminisce his highlights with the company, starting with his songwriting credit for Rihanna’s “Umbrella,” and ending with picture hinting his upcoming project as an independent crooner.

While rumors are flaring as an attempt to explain The-Dream’s abrupt leave, his comments and captions attached to his Instagram uploads cite issues with creative control.
