R&B singer/songwriter The-Dream is trying to get Kanye West to do a Jay-Z/R. Kelly Best of Both Worlds-esque collaborative album.

In a recent interview with West Coast radio personality DJ Skee, the hitmaker responsible for such songs as Rihanna’s “Umbrella” and J. Holiday’s “Bed” spoke on his plans on collaboration with 'Ye. “Me and Kanye, we trying to lock this business down,” he said. “I wanna do a record with Kanye. I already let him know about it – I told him I was gonna lift my profile up and I was gonna get out here and roll around a little bit. So I’m lifting my profile and I’m doing my thing.” [Watch Below]

Dream is shooting to release the project after he puts out two more solo discs. “I think after my third LP,” he said. “I’ma try to release two albums this year. The next installment after Love Vs Money is an album called Love King, which I already started working on… So the fourth album you’ll hear from me will probably be a record that’s done with Kanye.”

The-Dream’s sophomore disc, Love Vs. Money, is set to drop on March 3rd. Along with 'Ye, the album will also feature cameos from Mariah, Ludacris and Fabolous. – Elan Mancini
