The-Dream Says Goodbye To Def Jam Records

Producer announces his departure from the iconic label via an Instagram post.

The-Dream is packing it up, and leaving his home at Def Jam.

On Wednesday (January 8), the acclaimed singer-songwriter and producer — responsible for crafting anthems for everyone from Jay Z and Justin Bieber, to Beyoncé and Rihanna — used his Instagram account to announce his departure from the label.

Terius Nash shared a photo of the Def Jam logo, accompanied by the caption, “I will miss this logo. It all started here! Love Everything that I achieved there, EXODUS THE-DREAM #exodusthedream.”

The-Dream began his tenure at the label back in 2007 as a solo artist, releasing his debut album Love Hate via Def Jam and his own imprint Radio Killa Records.
