The Dream Named Vice President Of A&R At Def Jam

Looks like singer/producer The Dream has found yet another source of income to make it rain all over his 9,876 children and 2 babymamas. He was recently named the Vice President of A&R at Def Jam records.

According to a statement issued on Oct. 8, The-Dream “will have a comprehensive, broad reaching A&R portfolio.”

His responsibilities at the division of Universal Music Group will include overseeing the progress of current and new artist projects, signing new talent to the label and working in a production capacity with artists on the Def Jam roster.

Currently, the-Dream is working with Rihanna on her upcoming Def Jam album and with Pusha T on his solo debut for G.O.OD. Music. The label will also devote additional resources to its executive VP’s Radio Killa label imprint.

He had this to say about his new gig:

“Music means more than just a download, it’s life to the culture and also the people who listen. This is a new exciting yet critical time for music — ‘You Meet Change with Change!’

He must be making somebody happy over at Def Jam even if his babymamas can’t quite say the same.
