The-Dream & The Weeknd Engage In Twitter Beef

The-Dream and The Weeknd engage in R&Beef on the social networking site.

After The-Dream fired shots at The Weeknd for jacking his sound during a show at New York City's S.O.B.'s earlier this week, the latter artist has responded to the subliminals. Taking to Twitter, the elusive Canadian singer-songwriter unleashed a brief tirade, calling the Def Jam artist a "ham burglar lookin' ass nigga."

ham burglar lookin’ ass nigga… all 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…

The-Dream responded shortly after, posting a long series of tweets. He said that he wasn't being petty about Weeknd adopting his style, but rather being honest. Terius Nash said that he has nothing but love, and that he "think the world of the boy."

Read the full series of messages below.

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. 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. Aint 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!

  • whogivesa

    i liken this to 2 faggots having a pillow fight over the last bon bon. the dream is liked by exclusively half gay men and hood rats and the weekend is a gay man trying to make women wet, in turn turning on gay rap fans that don't know shit about real r&b. rap and r&b both fell the fuck off, the dream is a hack, the weekend sucks, and twitter fights are one of the saddest things you can engage in as a human being. female shit.

    The dream is a washed up pop song writer who's seen his time come and go. The weeknd is hands down the best vocalist out there and clearly the future. Echoes of Silence is a masterpiece. #airhead

    LOL @ you stupid niggas thinking that The Weeknd is even on Dream's level. Turn on the radio right now and you'll hear 3 songs in heavy rotation that The Dream wrote. It's been like that for a consistent 8 years or so. The Dream is caked up and has paid his dues, from Justin Beiber ($$$) to Beyonce ($$$). The Weeknd is dope, but let's not act like they're on the same page...

      ^^^ i can dig it

    • James

      No one is contesting The Dream's longevity and compendium of work. His own projects and projects for which he has produced/written. It's impressive. He's a prolific dude. But that's not what they were arguing about. They're arguing over "artistry". And I have to agree with Shuttman. Something about The Weeknd is transcendent even if The Dream "thinks" The Weeknd's work is derivative of his. As a consumer of both their music, The Weeknd appeals to me more. I get his vibe and his perspective. And little things like vibe and perspective completely change the flavor of someone's music. It's the reason a little kid draw a bunch of scribbles that happen to look exactly like Jackson Pollock's artwork and no one will call the little kid a genius. Their context isn't there. But this is my interpreation. I'm sure the The Dream thinks he's the deepest person. A Siddhartha. (Not that the The Weeknd is). But I don't get that from his music. I like his music. But nothing on 1977 or Love/Hate or Falsetto was supremely unique. Terius, you're not an indie artist. That's not you steez. You know this, so let The Weeknd live.

    Everything is wron with this article, first I read the word "twitter beef" and already knew it wasn't worth any time but I checked it out anyway, then I read the dreams sweet ass essay. Smh the dreams a sweet ass nigga.

  • Size Em Up

    I honestly can't stand Dream's music. At all. And I think "House Of Balloons" and "Thursday" are better than anything Dream has ever put out, just my opinion. Aside from that statement, this whole twitter shit is gay and degrading.

  • grandpuba

    The Weeknd > The Dream

  • Alf Capone

    look at da gay ass gloves this nigga wearin in that picture.......nuff said

  • Tay

    Weeknd? I never even heard of this nigga, man.

  • Shuttaman

    Dream is cool, but he's a retard for starting shit. The weeknd didnt even look or say nothing bout him. The Dream sounds like he's fucking jealous or something. They both are different, both sing about different subject matter. So what the fuck is the Dream's problem yo? Dreams my nigga but he's acting like a old ass nigga that bitter or some shit yo. Maybe cuz Christina Milan signed to YM, and the weeknd fucked her?? OvOxO

    • Anonymous

      what's clear as water? the article never stated what Dream exactly said. i don't think you understand how much pull the dream has in the industry...take my word for it...

    • Shuttaman

      He dont need to say its name, nigga its clear as water. The Dream started that shit, he's looking for shit to start, he should just shut up and go take care of his kids. Plus the weeknd never named him too so what you saying doe? The dream started this throwing shoots game, plus in the long run the Weeknd will>>>>>>>>>the dream. The weeknd is just starting, the Dream is already established. The weeknd ain't start shit. Why would the dream come out and say subliminal shit that is obvious? Cuz he's fuckin scared thats why. anyways Balloons Trilogy>>>>>>>>>The Dream entire discography. The weeknd sings about his lifestyle(dat drug influenced music doe gawd damn) The Dream sings cuz of bitches n love like a simp I don't need to listen to dream's simp music

    Disclaimer I am white but what the fuck did I just read? Was that English? I can't understand somebody when every sentence in a long paragraph is a slogan.

  • DFM

    Me personally everybody in Drake's circle is pretty much soft as hell. He does sound like the Dream. I don't see why he would get mad when its true. Even if Dream never puts out another album and Weeknd puts out 30 Dream will still be on a bigger level than him cause Dream ain't just a singer, he's a fucking songwriter. So people better understand that Dream is on another level. He was just speaking his mind and if the nigga don't like it then he can go see him or call him....



  • So Icy Boi!

    fuck the dream. he aint real muzik. Drake & the weekend are da best R&B rapparz alive. dey would kill him in a freestyle battle. YMCMB OVOXO BRICK SQUAD MMG! swag

      Here's where you fail: The Dream and The Weeknd have words. Bring in anyone else and you prove you're incapable of standing on your own two. But the youth doesn't understand this. One day you will young'n. And for the record: While I do enjoy listening to The Weeknd, Budden/Emmany>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>OVOXO.

    Well. At least the Dream didnt sink to the level of engaging in twitterbeef. Then again. Didn't The Dream take his style from Prince. Didn't Prince adopt Jimi Hendrix and Little Richards music. It's all copied either way. We build on the past. ]

      the dream has stated that he's a HUGE fan of Prince usually when you are fond of a artist you mimic some of the things they do the dream didnt just take Prince style come on now -__-
