R&B producer and singer-songwriter Terius “The-Dream” Nash has been part of Island Def Jam’s executive board since 2009, allowing him access to the development of the label’s upcoming releases. Of those acts soon to put out new product, Virginia rhyme slinger Pusha T’s signing with Def Jam last summer led to the pair working alongside each other for the Clipse rapper’s as-yet-untitled debut on the storied label. The-Dream breaks down their musical alliance, and promises it will be ready to drop soon.

“Yeah. We found a little magic. We did, like eight, nine records together. It sounds really, really great. I’ve always loved him and loved the Clipse. Always been a big fan, so when the opportunity came, we did this one record called “Automatic” and it just took off from that,” said The-Dream in an interview with Complex.

The-Dream has to await clearance from G.O.O.D. Music honcho Kanye West before giving the album a stamp of approval. “Yeah, Kanye will listen to it in the upcoming days and we’re going to try to decide what we need and what’s missing, which is probably like two or three records—which we probably already have. It’s at the end of that.”

Hopefully, Pusha T will get to employ his infamous “eghck” adlib at will.
