The-Dream on Not Working With Drake Since 2010: ‘I’m Only Going to Ask You Once’ [VIDEO]
During the sit-down, someone in the audience asked Dream why he hasn't worked with Drizzy since 2010's "Shut it Down," off the Thank Me Later album and it had to do with how they made the song.
According to the Atlanta crooner, he wanted to make the track without any instruction from Drake, but the Canadian spitter was eager to give him input.
"Shout out to Drake, and what he's done with his career," said The-Dream "Like I said before, I'm a real student of how these things go. I remember when Drake was putting this record together, I was getting calls after calls after calls like 'Yo, get on this record.' I said, 'I'm gonna do the record. I'm on tour. As soon as I get to a place I'm going to do it.'"
"[Afterwards], Drake called like 'Yo, this is how I want it to sound,'" he added. "I'm like 'Drake, I'm going to do this record how I'm going to do it. I'm gonna give it back to you the same way you sent it with your verse.'"
From there, the singer and producer said when he tried to reach out to Drake for one of his own songs, he got some resistance from him.
"I think when the next album came along — since somebody wants to know why we never worked again — I asked him to get on a record, and he never got on the record, and so I'm only going to ask you once,"Dream explained. "Especially if I've already done something for you. So that went through to his people, directly to him and whatever that thing was, then that was it. So that's the end of the Drake and Dream era of a record."
Drizzy hasn't responded to any of this yet, and we'll have to see if any rift he and the singer had before widens after this interview.
