Love/Hate Thing.

The-Dream and Tricky Stewart (do your googles)were in town this week to play their upcoming EP, Crown (March 31). Following the listening, we met at Engine Room Audio for the fourth installment of the Rap Radar Podcast. Although pressed for time, we discussed the project, their newly minted Contra Paris label, the Beyond The Lights score, Grammy’s, and state of the game. .

UPDATE: Part Two. Sorry for the wait.

It took two weeks, but The-Dream and Tricky Stewart finally made it back to Engine Room Audio, for the second half of our conversation. Before walking out on us (Ha!) we run down his catalogue, hood classic, politics, “Black”, upcoming book, and so much more.

    Legends! Very cool!!!!

  • I was worried at first about the way it started; but im glad you guys got right back into the music and the art aspect of music creation. Dream and Tricky have a phenomenal track record and I see what their intentions are when speaking about quality, emotion driven music. Technology definitely has changed a lot for the culture; specially coming from the days of waiting the whole day for 1 song with a 56k dial up modem in conjunction with KaZaa (lol). When he spoke about ‘club’ culture, he hit right on the nail. Very excited to hear that the album has a uni-progressive format; for which I believe that’s the best way take a listener through a whole journey (Que Last Train to Paris and the remix Album). Can’t wait to hear the next part of the interview and also the Ep/Album. Good shit B.

  • SJB

    9 mins in: Tricky: “when you go for greatness, hits will follow.” B.Dot: “right” nod’s head.

    What?! You’re not going to challenge or question the ridiculousness of that statement? You’re not interviewing, you’re merely holding a mic while they jabber into it.

  • E-Manny

    Dope! The-Dream is the number one dude when it comes to progressive R&B. He and Tricky is a super duo. Big ups.

  • Mike Green
