The-Dream - AK47

Posted 3 years ago

Previously released for free digital download back in September of 2011, The-Dream‘s 1977 LP was such a hit that Def Jam‘s decided to re-release it in an expanded retail edition. Newly-added for this version of the project, new single AK47 finds Terius Nash ruefully addressing a shorty whose knack for shooting suitors down rivals the destructive capabilities of the titular firearm. Dream backs his vocals with some characteristically killer boardwork, overlaying sporadic kick rhythm with insistent hi-hats and coruscating synths. Like what your’re hearing? This wounded banger is just one of several fresh cuts added for the latest incarnation of 1977, scheduled to hit record stores and online retailers December 18.
