7. First Deal Came From a B2K Song

After The-Dream wrote "Everything" for B2K's final studio album, Pandemonium!, a man named Laney Stewart hooked him up with a publishing deal and it was big business from there, including Britney Spears and Madonna's "Me Against the Music." Around that time, The-Dream also developed a close relationship with Stewart's brother, Tricky, Dream's current production partner, and the two started going in on such chart-topping singles as Rihanna's "Umbrella."
