Report: The-Dream Signs to Capitol Records

Report: The-Dream Signs to Capitol Records

Radio Killa reportedly lands new deal, has yet to make an official announcement.

Published May 20, 2014

The-Dream has reportedly found a new label to call home. At the top of the year, Dream announced his departure from Def Jam Records, and has since joined Capitol Records, reports HipHop-N-More.

Null of an official announcement from Radio Killa himself, the website did a little digging and noticed that Capitol Records is listed as the label under the North Carolina native's new single, "Black," on iTunes and Amazon.

However, Dream doesn't appear among the list of artists on Capitol's website, which could point to a distribution deal similar to 50 Cent's after he left Interscope Records. The G-Unit MC, who is also missing from the label's site, has an independent deal with Caroline Records, an offshoot of Capitol that will distribute his new album. Capitol's current roster includes The Eagles, Elton John, Katy Perry, Jennifer Lopez and Emeli Sandé.

Dream is rumored to be working on an album called Pro Onyx, a follow-up to his fifth studio album, IV Play, released last year.

Elsewhere, outside the studio, the 36-year-old has made non-music headlines recently over an alleged assault on ex-girlfriend and mother to one of his four children, Lydia Nam. He has been charged with two felonies for a rumored physical altercation with her last April. In the wake of the allegations, which he denies, Dream has been less vocal about airing out his personal drama on social media, and recently made his Instagram account private.
