ICYMI: True Pairing: The-Dream & Tricky Stewart [Mini-Doc]

True Pairing: The-Dream & Tricky Stewart

The-Dream & Tricky Stewart have been one of pop’s most successful production and songwriting duos of the past decade and it should please longtime fans that they’re keepin’ at it… and “scratching the surface of what we’re capable of.”

That’s what Tricky says in this great new mini-doc with FADER that takes us into the studio for a detailed studio session and sit-down interview. Both Dream and Tricky have some quotable gems as they both touch on their own individual creative process and how they work with each other.

For instance, The-Dream talks about creating from a completely free platform, which is probably the most core element to take out of the doc. Tricky elaborates on their chemistry and how him being from Chicago and Dream from Atlanta allows for two different perspectives and genres of music they grew up on creating a unique merging of ideas, sounds, and tastes. There’s only so much to paraphrase that I really suggest you take a full watch of the quick 5 minute video.

The-Dream & Action Bronson on Highly Questionable

Bomani Jones and Dan Le Betard are the new ESPN go-to’s for hip hop stars to pass through and talk sports and other fun topics.

The-Dream, up above, reveals he has a song with Kanye coming out, currently untitled because ‘Ye “comes up with a title eight years from now.” He also talks about his and Lil Wayne’s similar taste in women amongst other things.

Down below, Action Bronson had probably the funniest talk on Highly Questionable as you can probably tell from the thumbnail. Ha! Enjoy.
