The-Dream + The Weeknd Engage in Twitter Feud
Forget about McDonald’s, the real beef is on Twitter. Apparently The-Dream and The Weeknd are embroiled in a R&Beef with each other over their similar vocal styles. The-Dream fired the first shots at his New York show when he told the crowd that they are several R&B singers “that sound like me.”
Those biting comments reverberated all the way to Canada where The Weeknd resides, and he was not too thrilled with what the crooner said. He jumped on Twitter to voice his opinion on the matter and tweeted:
“ham burglar lookin’ ass n—a… [all] i need are my brothers and my fans… f—the bulls—. just gimme that gat damn allderdice god damm it! i’m too turnt up right now!! this n—- is so hood, he thinks my name is the weekender…i was raised old fashioned, you get at me, i get at you… ain’t no sideways s— about it.”
The-Dream himself responded with a long-winded rant on his Twitter page, but he did clarify that he doesn’t have a problem with the Canadian singer. He wrote:
