On the subject of giving hits to particular artists, The-Dream mentioned that he only gives hits to artists he has 'supreme respect' for:
Complex: But what about somebody like J. Holiday?

The-Dream: That was a different relationship. Him getting that record had nothing to do with J. Holiday. You would know if me and J. Holiday really had a good relationship—you’d see us [together] more often. He’d probably be on my album. I would probably be on his album, which I didn’t do a song for.
Complex: With your latest album, Love vs Money, you’ve lost a couple of pounds and you’re putting yourself out there more. You trying to be a pop star?

The-Dream: Yeah, I’m gonna turn it on! You start out and people are like, “Aw, look at this chubby guy.” [Laughs.] I get it, but I’ve been writing records for 10 years at four in the morning eating White Castle.
