The-Dream talks auto-tune, Mariah's answer record

The-Dream has been the premier male R&B star of 2009. The Def Jam songwriter, producer and artist spoke to HipHopDX as a part of a media junket late last week. Looking at his top-charting Love Vs. Money album, the artist fielded several questions about his hit collaboration with Kanye West, "Walking On The Moon". "First of all everybody knows I'm Def Jam alumni, so it wasn't that big of a deal to put Kanye West on 'Walking On The Moon'. Me and him really just love each other's music, so it was one of those things that was bound to happen. He was supposed to get on this record, 'She Needs My Love' on the first album, but it didn't happen because of the death of his mom, so I got him up for this album and we did some old Michael Jackson shit you know. You know how I go."

Lastly, The-Dream hinted that Mariah Carey's next single is an outcry, perhaps at Eminem, that may shock the media world. Speaking simply about upcoming productions, the artist said, "The most anticipated is the Mariah project, and she just released a fire record in the building today. And we have been blasting it out all day. It's just fucking retarded. I don't think anybody is going to expect her to come out punching like she is going to come out. But she got a record."

He continued, hinting at the content, "It's going to light the blogs up too because you don't know who she talking about, what she talking about, but she talking about something. And remember The-Dream told you first. So you can start that up right now. Mariah Carey has a record, and somebody's going to be very upset. I said that."
