The dream talks about MDMA and cocaine in his music?
yeah i've never listened to the dream so i checked out a couple songs and dont see why the fuck people would bother comparing them. dumb as the comparison between frank ocean and the weeknd
It's not about The Dream's lyrical content. The Dream did father the style Abel uses. Like how rappers have certain flows, Abel uses the same flow as Dream. But Abel's content > Dream's.
The Weeknd is a good singer but that Nigga has no stage presence. I seen him live and there was absolutely no showmanship, he just stands there and sings. Aside from that, his music goes hard
That's not his aim. Look at his whole persona. He wants to remain as secretive as possible. So him doing a show and stepping into the light is awkward. He's not gonna be up there putting on "good" show if it means dancing around on stage.
