Yesterday, we brought you video of The-Dream performing live in New York, which featured him seemingly throwing shade at the likes of the Weeknd, and presumably, Frank Ocean and everyone else who does R&B since 2008. After the video made the rounds, it eventually reached the doorstep of Abel Tesfaye himself, who went to his Twitter to send off some Tweets about how Dream looks like the hamburglar, and how The-Dream is dumb and old, pretty much:
ham burglar lookin’ ass nigga…ll i need are my brothers and my fans… fuck the bullshit. just gimme that gat damn allderdice god damm it! i’m too turnt up right now!! this nigga 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 shit about it…
OK. Beef launched. And now we have a response from The-Dream too, which was to be expected. He messes up who wrote the Art of War, and says that his love overcomes any hate directed at him by the Weeknd. Here’s what Dream said:
Like my father said. Say ur piece son if a man feel uncomfortable enough a cheat, and a liar will identify his self. Amen. 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 nigga 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.
Machiavelli the art of war has nothing to do with a Gun. Its psych thing. U use words to make the opponent make a move that he can never….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 niggas up. Can’t beef by ur self. Beef wld have to mean insecurity R Jealousy two things I knw nthing about Im Dope! Like I said I think the world of the boy. And nothing will change that. He’s very talented. And its nothing for me to Say that. int enough RandB too Beef. And its no fun ballin by yourself. Retore Order. I will not do what the RandB nigga before me did. I’m Dope…..Enough to share the success with any man Worthy! LoveCult! #TheLoveGang. But as my mother would Don’t Take my Sweetness for a Weakness!
OH SHIT. FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT.
Oh wait, scratch that. This is a pretty weak beef, but I guess if it gets more people to listen to both, I’m cool with it. To paraphrase the Kool A.D., I’m Dream versus Weekend, who cares? [via Rap Radar]
