Keyboard gangstas and e-thugs are all the rage on the streets of the interconnected webs. People, including celelbrities, take to Twitter to air out their adversary’s dirty laundry all in the name of attracting more followers. Then, there are times when the beef is personal and spills onto the social networking site. The Dream and The Weeknd is a beef that leans toward the latter instead of the former.
The Dream and The Weeknd engaged in a war of words because of a few comments The Dream made when he performed in New York City on Sunday. The “Single Ladies” songwriter told a sold out crowd, “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.” Once he caught wind of The Dream’s comments, The Weeknd took aim that the Terius Nash by subtweeting, “Hamburglar lookin’ A$ N***a.”
Nash countered, “Like my father said, ‘say your piece son. If a man feel uncomfortable enough a cheat, and a liar will identify [himself.]‘ Amen. Now I know for sure,” he stated. “I said I was honest not petty. I’m going to support the movement where if you 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 you truly are then what we talkin about. Now I’m going to leave it at that. “
As soon as fans began to instigate the situation, The Dream shut all of that down by saying, “Y’all better quit hypin niggas up. [You] can’t beef by yourself. Beef would have to mean insecurity [or] jealousy. Two things I know nothing about, I’m dope!”
Beef between the two has since cooled and Twitter has been restored to it’s natural ratchet behavior. What do you think of this beef? Is R&B too soft of a music genre to have beef brewing between two acts? Hit up the comment section to share your thoughts.
