LET ME SING YOU MY DRUNK SONG: TERIUS ‘THE DREAM’ NASH


Posted on September 21st, by legrandfromage in life, mixtape, music, video. No Comments


“Long Gone”, a shameless belter from “1997”, the free ‘internet album’ by Terius ‘The Dream’ Nash  gets the video treatment. It’s mostly black and white posing with some girl and her cleavage. But it’s also a perfect excuse to profess my love for the entire album. The Dream wrote ‘Single Ladies’ and ‘Umbrella’ and regular lurkers and copy/pasters of this site already know how essential we deem his mixtapes to be. Everyone who says they love The Weeknd and don’t like The Dream needs to shut the hell up. Seriously.

As our (occasionally long-winded but always) observant friends from Pitchfork have already pointed out: there’s a lot of similarities between 1977 and ‘808 and Heartbreak’ by Kanye West. Both plunge deep into the pains of love, bitter failure, stardom, sadness and generally losing your shit in public. Both lean towards pompous artwork and detailed, no-holds-barred lyrics. Both are in high rotation at the KNOTORYUS offices. Courageous shit. Anthems.

Did I mention it’s free? I mean, you barely have to move your fingers to get it right HERE.
