The two titans of R&B are going at it on Twitter!

It started when The-Dream played a New York show on Sunday night and said onstage, "I haven’t done a show in close to two years. And ever since then, there’s like, four n****s that sound like me now. I’m just being honest."

It seemed clear that he was referring to 22-year-old Canadian singer The Weeknd, and The Weeknd took to Twitter and replied with some fierce words. He called The-Dream a "ham burglar lookin’ ass ni**a," and added that, "this ni**a 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 sh*t about it…"

The-Dream got right back at him on Twitter with a long, rambling post. 

"Don’t get fooled or tricked and try to come up on a ni**a like me, won’t work... I’m signed to my self. Selfmade, I built it ground up, you brought it renovated."

Then The-Dream got all philosophical, writing, "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… We on a whole other level ova here. No Calculated moves just Absolute ones."

Then he softened up a bit: "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... I’m Dope…..Enough to share the success with any man Worthy! But as my mother would [say] Don’t Take my Sweetness for a Weakness!"

What do you think? Should The-Dream never have said anything in the first place? Or did The Weeknd overreact? Tell us in the comments below.
