R&B extraordinaire The-Dream is set to release a 10-song online album titled The Terius Nash Est. 1977 for free at the end of August. Apparently, Nash’s label, Def Jam, isn’t too happy about it, as Nash revealed in a Tweet on Tuesday:
The-Dream’s fourth LP, titled L.IV (Diary Of A Madman), was set for release this September; but according Nash’s Twitter feed, it will be delayed until the “4th quarter” due to “contract negotiations” with Def Jam. Def Jam hasn’t commented on the controversy yet. You can listen to the first single off of LP4, “Body Work/Fuck My Brains Out,” here.
Nash, again taking to Twitter, says Internet freeload 1977 will be a very personal album and a testament to his fans and has a release date of August 31.
