SOHH Whatcha Think: The-Dream & The Weeknd Beef Online + Is Iggy Really Sorry?!?

Wasn't I just talking about these R&B n*ggas being the new thugs? What the f*ck is an R&B beef anyway -- two dudes meeting up in an alley and scratching the sh*t outta each others faces? D*mn, I long for the days where singers would just make music, now these cats out here plotting drive by tasings and sh*t.
Look, we all know The Dream is an odd lookin' dude. So why Canadian crooner The Weeknd chose to attack the man's looks.
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."(Hip Hop DX)
Apparently, the e-beef started when The Dream accused The Weeknd of stealing his style. Well, he did steal his first name. The. C'mon Weeknd. Come up with your own sh*t man.
"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 Weeknd's Twitter)
In other news, Grand Hustle femcee Iggy Azaela apologized for referring to herslef as a "runaway slave master" in one of her songs. To be honest, I never heard the song and still haven't so zero f*cks have been processed or given, but since she wants to talk about it, I figure -- sh*t let's run a bit of her apology:
My lyric was: "when the relay starts I'm a runaway slave...Master, shitting on the past gotta spit it like a pastor" This is a metaphoric take on an originally literal lyric, and I was never trying to say I am a slave owner. The intent was to say was that past histories have been mastered, or overcome, and that you may feel my line was 'shitting on the past,' just as many feel pastors shit on the bible or biblical history...although they mean no ill and just have their own take, hence the lyric 'gotta spit it like a pastor.' In all fairness, it was a tacky and careless thing to say and if you are offended, I am sorry. (This Beat Goes)
Sorta unwise to make a slave reference to a black oriented genre of music, sorta like bringing a Nazi to a Bah Mitvah. SOHH Watcha Think: Is she truly sorry or just trying to not alienate listeners?
Yo -- before you roll out, peep this new video by Cash Money artist Mystikal featuring Weezy and Birdman. Watch for and epic Birdman hand-rub halfway through. Peace.
