The Dream loves to get all emotional and complain about the lack of “love”.  I just don’t understand how you can be one of the biggest names in commercial music, and think no one likes you.  This guys is a tremendous talent.  I just don’t understand why he has to act like such a b*tch.  Check the whole interview with Honey Magazine.  Also be sure to check his “Make Up Bag” video ft Tip.  Love King drops 6/29.

Honey Magazine: You know I have to ask you about this whole retirement thing. You’ve disappointed a gang of women who are addicted to your music. I’ve also heard that you’ve changed your mind. What’s the deal?
I’m still going to do it [retire]. You know why? At first, I was like “Okay, maybe I’ll do another one.” You know what I hate dealing with, though? When you got something you love, make sure that you let people know that you love it or you let the haters win. You know there’s so much negative tension brewing in music, especially my music, and that always happens when you get to a certain place. It’s the same negative attention that I get most of the time and then in the dark, everybody loves me.

So this is not your final studio album?

Regardless of what I said and what you might hear on my album that’s coming out, this is my last [album]. I don’t feel the love right now.
This is as of right now. Regardless of what I said and what you might hear on my album that’s coming out, this is my last. I don’t feel the love right now.

What if you feel an outpouring of appreciation and love from this album? Would it be a lot harder to walk away at this point?
Of course it would. I used to be able to move the masses. It’s not about rolling out the bed and doing it for two people, I can’t lie. If two people are like, “This is great” and 800 thousand people say “I’m about to download that shit for free. That nigga not hot, whatever.” Well, cool – that’s what’s up. Let me go ahead and get this money then.
