The-Dream and the Weeknd Are Fighting, Kind Of

On Sunday, The-Dream took some time during his sold-out SOB's show (Jay and Bey were there!) to remind the younger generation that he was here first. (Money quote: "I haven’t done a show in close to two years. And ever since then, there’s like, four n*ggas that sound like me now. I’m just being honest.") Predictably, one of the presumed gentlemen in question, the Canadian man of mystery known as the Weeknd, took issue with these comments and fired up a response on Twitter (he didn't reference The-Dream by name, but he did mention a "ham burglar lookin' ass" individual and noted that he "was raised old fashioned, you get at me, i get you"). This was all it took for The-Dream to write his own DONDA-like Twitter rant, which at times reads like a beef-squasher but quotes Machiavelli and signs off with the message "Don't Take my Sweetness for a Weakness." Also, this: "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 …." Vulture is still not totally sure what that means, but it sure sounds scary. Advantage: The-Dream.
