The-Dream's performance at SOBs, during which he called out his imitators, got some attention. One R&B star didn't take too kindly to The-Dream's insinuation that there were too many artists out that sounded like him; the Weeknd sent what most are interpreting as a diss at the singer/songwriter on Twitter.
"ham burglar lookin’ ass nigga… all i need are my brothers and my fans… f**k the bullsh*t. just gimme that gat damn allderdice god d**m it!" The Weeknd tweeted. "i’m too turnt up right now!! this n***a 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 sh*t about it…"
The-Dream quickly responded with a long series of tweets that were both confrontational and passive.
"Like my father said. Say ur piece son if a man feel uncomfortable enough a cheat, and a liar will identify his self. Amen. " The-Dream posted. "Now I know 4 Sure. I said I was Honest not petty. Joke all you want. Grown Man. Love killed Hate. I’m going to support the movement where if u can’t say it in person don’t say it. Nothing but love from here lil homie. Don’t get fooled or tricked and try to come up on a n***a like me , won’t work just do you if u truly are then what we talkin bout. Now ima leave it at that. Ill call ya phone if you wanna chop it up or if you feel a way. Seek knowledge at all times “if you have a unknowing of a mans true will Use the Word as a tool to unveil the shadow of a enemy. Naw…….I’m signed to my self. Selfmade, I built it ground up, you brought it renovated. Nice."
"Love kills Hate I’m going to prove it! Watch." he continued. "Move back from the move the word is Permanent! The assumption of your move was merely a thought and now you know for sure….. Now we move. In silence the right way! We on a whole other level ova here. No Calculated moves just Absolute ones. Yall better quit hypin n***as up. Can’t beef by ur self.
