The-Dream’s FBI Sting

The-Dream set one helluva boobie trap. Apparently, yesterday’s leak was part of a FBI sting to track down some music pirates. The singer turned to his Twitter account to address the culprits and anyone else wanting to release unauthorized material. You’ve been warned.

    Sites need to get their journalism up, grab some exclusives, make yourselves more useful than just posting links to stolen material.

    Are people really mad at Dream for protecting his property? You cheap bastards are ignorant as shit. You’re basically saying that he sucks, and therefore he shouldn’t try to sell his music to you…IF HE SUCKS, WHY DO YOU CARE WHETHER OR NOT YOU CAN DOWNLOAD IT?? If you don’t like it, don’t buy it. If you like it, buy it. If you have to pretend you don’t like it to hold up your internet-badass image, but actually like it, stream it. Buncha morons…

    Truth is, most of you who are hating on this are just cheap scumbags.

  • ST

    yalls niggas are stupid. all dude did was set a trap for catch cats swiping his music and putting it out there before its ready. them niggas are not authorized to release that mans music.

    if you suspected a muphucka entering your residence while you were away, and stealing shit, you set up a camera and catch a muphucka in the act.

    i dont blame dude at all.

    most of yall are HATERS!!! fucking crabs in a bucket

    and I’m buying that Love king when it drops

  • Shawn

    He’s not a “snitch”. You clowns twist shit to fit your meaning. He wasn’t involved in a crim and ratted on other dudes for lighter sentence or freedom..that’s snitchin’
    I guess you guys suggest he gets at these dudes with his goons, right? And then who’s tending to his family while he serves the 2-4yrs?

    Now with that being said… That niggas a fool if he thinks “stopping” piracy will mean he’s going to sell more records.. Nobody really gives a fuck about this Dudes right now music..You’re 200K unit mover Homie.. It is what it is.

  • Dan

    This nigga Dream on the next episode of the First 48 performing his latest hit “Champagne”.

    To the fucktards defending this guy, would y’all do the same if your favorite rapper worked with the Feds to catch muhfuckas downloading music? Fuck outta here.

  • DJ NITTI

    Never liked this dude. Seems cocky and arrogant and I can’t imagine why cause I don’t think his body of work justifies it. I somewhat understand what he did because they weren’t out to catch downloaders or fans, their target was HACKERS and I have no love for hackers, fuck them, Remember a few years ago when hackers messed up all the hip hop sites and put up racist messages? Fuck Hackers! Unless hackers got some nude pics of Christina Milian, then I might show them some love. :-)

    BTW, everyone crying about all the money artists are losing to downloading, please look into it and you’ll see it doesn’t amount to much. According to Infographic, an artist only makes 94 cents for an album that sells from $9.99 (the label makes $6.29 and iTunes keeps the difference). Artists’ money comes from touring, endorsements, merchandising, etc. Artists might as well give away their music, as promotion, so they can sell more tickets to their tours. But even so a hacker still doesn’t have the right to steal unfinished tracks and release them, only the artist should be able to release his/her work, when they are ready. Don’t get me wrong as a fan I love it but I know its wrong. So if you really want to support the artist go to their live shows.

    Here’s a link to what artists actually make from sales:

    Sometimes I like reading comments to see how absolutely retarded people really are…

    The-Dream isn’t a thug, he’s a musician. People were stealing his music, so he handled his business and stopped them from stealing it.

    Did you expect him to go kill the bootleggers? Would that make him cool? He’s not a gangster and never claimed to be…

    You internet thugs need to fall back and read a book.. Simple ass motherfuckers..

  • Interscope Employee

    damn this bitch ass nigga is WORKING WITH THE FEDS!! Snitch ass nigga

  • Streets Is Watching….WoW

    These leaks sell records ask Lil Wayne, Ask Jay Z, Ask TI. Us music buyers just want to know we aren’t paying for crap. If the Dream makes stand up music people will buy it reguardless of leaks.

    Getting the feds on someone committing none violent crimes is cowerdly.

    Getting the feds on someone promotting your music and tweeting about it is 100% bitch made.

    I remember puffy getting mad at Dj Clue for leaking BadBoy records on mixtapes until he realized it was great promotion.

    Dear Dream,
    I hate to be the one to tell you this, but if your records don’t sell,…if the girls who you are singing to don’t buy your records, its because of 1 of 2 reasons:

    1) Your music is not compelling
    or
    2) Its because you’re fat, ugly, it looks like your breath stinks, and those hotdog links on the back of your neck don’t help either homey. The MTV effect be happinin since the 90’s son. If you don’t look like Beyonce or Usher good luck you better make music like Jill Scott or Marvin Gaye my nigga, and you don’t.

  • D

    I was away 2 go in on him but they were hacking which is totally wrong. U can’t blame dude 4 doin something about that.

    At the end of the day a part of me really wishes albums would stop leaking, it used to be a good feeling waiting till release day.

    But it’s also a good feeling seeing the major labels almost brought to there knees considering how they rape the consumer (no homo)

    You’re a chump. So what your saying to me is that you are sooooo hard that you dont buy RnB records. Who gives a fuck about what he names his album. You are a simpleton sucka ass nigga that probably gets no pussy. Your hand is your best friend.

    Dream makes some of the BEST slow jams period….

  • the one

    Dream you suck ass ! I just don’t know why these guys would be wasting there time on your music as who really cares when you drop. Now if your name was Dre or Jay then maybe just maybe I can see them doing something like that but your waist of time and effort as your music is bubble gum garbage!

  • illmatic

    FUCK D POLICE!

  • Mike

    Everyone hating on Dream for determining WHO HAS BEEN HACKING HIS PERSONAL COMPUTER is a straight up tool.

    This has nothing to do with snitching. It has to do with his privacy and his property, which he deserves to protect. Everyone who is out yelling “SNITCH” right now has probably learned everything they know about rap from the BEEF movies. You are clueless idiots.

    I happen to like Dream’s music, but even if I didn’t, I wouldn’t call him out on this. Use your brains.

  • Intel

    Too funny… he should just let people steal and put out his inventions before they’re even finished? Like releasing the light bulb before homey put glass around it. Takin food out his mouth, disrespecting the game…. they should feel lucky they fucked wit Dream. Some people wouldn’t handle it quite so “legally”. Bitch ass nerds teaming up wit faggot ass wanna be DJs.

    @ DJ NITTI

    You’re a dumbass if you think artist should just “give away” their music as promotion. I can understand them giving away a mixtape, but not music from their albums. You act like they should not give a damn about the record sales just because they don’t make much from it. Those record sales ARE important because the more money the artist makes for the record company, the more dollars the record company will invest in their projects.

    Idiots will say “sales ain’t important” and then get mad when an artist release an album full of wack beats made by a low budget producer down in his mama’s basement. Or they sit on youtube clowning an artist for having a low budget video.

    Those sales do matter and I don’t blame The Dream’s fat two tons of fun lookin ass for wanting to catch the fools hacking his shit

  • DJ NITTI

    @STFU
    I understand your point and to be honest I wish we could go back to the days when we all waited, full of anticipation for the release date and bought the CD because music had more value then, it was worth something but those days are long gone and they’re not coming back, it’s over. But did you have to call me a dumbass? You wanna fight?

  • http://www.myspace.com/seboria johnseboria

    There is alot of different views on here from what i have noticed. I think dude did the right thing. The guys that got busted were pirating alot of peoples music and im sure dream isnt the first one to do this i believe he was just the first to come out. Last time i check dream sings about women and partying. I don’t remember him saying anything about being a gangster. Also, this isnt necessarily snitching, anyone who says it is has never commited a real crime or have been put in the situtation. The sentence for possessing weed is 6 months in jail but most people get no jail time and put on probation. so everybody is snitching? just like with T.I. everyone thinks he is a snitch because he only got a year. I have alot of friends that have been sent up the road for pistol charges and thats about right. Nobody asks you to snitch over a weak pistol charge. Snitching only comes up when selling dope is envolved.(mostly) because they want the guy on the top, not your stupid ass. so everybody needs to chill out and stop wasting your energy trying to justify why its cool to steal from someone and go get a fucking job and BUY your music, Before long these artists are gonna stop putting music out because of these thieves and than your gonna be stuck listening to music you dont wanna listen to. peace and love everybody.

    I could understand if Dream was doing this on a regular basis. The only reason he FINALLY did this bullshit is cuz he knew he had a lotta competition on the way, eminem, drake as well as him wanting to top usher, justin beiber and of course trey songz. he knew his sales were at an all-time low so he wanted people to “pay” for not not buyin his shit. so he decided that this would be a good time to do so. Aint nobody else in the game got FBI involved, cuz they know people gon go out and buy what they wanna buy!!!!!!!! for him to do this is a hit below the belt, straight scheme! all cuz he wasnt sellin records, he decided to take another route. face it dream, your the dream u use to be, everyone just woke up from a nightmare
