According to The Dream “Black people are no longer capable of making soulful records anymore.”

The Dream also lost a bet to dye his beard BLONDE.

It’s called rhythm and blues; they just took the blues out of it for so long,” Dream told The Guardian.

What’s crazy is that blacks can’t do soul records any more. We love Adele singing it, but Beyoncé singing it? No.”

Dream claims it takes a “club hit” for black people to sell records: “No, the tempo’s too slow, gimme the club hit. Now the Blacks in America are responsible for the Pop records, and everybody else is singing soulful records. It’s weird to me. We’re pigeonholed over there.”

Do you agree with the Dream?

  13. sylvanusinthehorizon answered: Its not that black folks can’t make soulful music, record execs and record labels don’t give artists the freedom. Anthony Hamilton is soul
  14. squeezehard answered: Yes and no. I think it was a pretty ignorant thing to say, and a sweeping generalisation , but I suppose in some way its true.
  15. naturalislandgurl answered: I think he makes a good point the music today sucks and mostly the younger generation is buying, downloading, and copying it.

    He shouldn’t have chosen Beyoncé though. He should have said: Jill Scott or Faith Evans.
