The-Dream, The Weeknd: ‘Hamburglar’ Insults, War of Words on Twitter
The-Dream made a late entrance onstage at New York City's S.O.B.'s Monday night (March 12) -- the second of his sold-out Kill the Lights shows at the venue -- but with his two-hour delay, he brought with him a slimmer physique, refreshing vocals and some subliminal insults.
Throughout the evening, the self-described "Radio Killa" performed songs like 'Shawty Is Da S---,' 'Walkin' on the Moon,' 'Falsetto,' 'Ghetto,' 'Long Gone,' 'Wake Me When It's Over' and many more tracks off projects like '1977' and his forthcoming album, 'Love IV MMXII.' While he served fans with charisma and sex-drenched lyrics, he also gave them some commentary on the current state of R&B.
"I haven't done a show in two years," he said during a break between his infectious songs. "And since then there's like four n----s that sound like me. I'm just being honest."
Those words prompted The Weeknd, a Toronto native and Drake's R&B ace, to take his own shots at The-Dream.
When the veteran singer-songwriter learned of the "hamburglar" Twitter post Monday night, he released several sentiments on his own account that attacked The Weeknd for having a guilty conscious.
"R&Beef," as Mr. Terius Nash put it, is still alive and thriving.
