The-Dream clears the air on Jay-Z's comment about his hat at the Grammys, saying it was just a harmless joke.
There were a lot of big moments at Sunday's Grammys, but one of the most talked about eventsÂ was the acceptance speech from Frank Ocean, Jay-Z and The-Dream for "Best Rap/Sung Collaboration". The moment in question was Jay's final remark concerning The-Dream's choice in headwear.Â "Iâd like to thank the swap meet for his hat." Jigga jokingly commented.
While there has been much talk about the comment following the ceremony, we had yet to hear Dream weigh in on the matter. The Radio Killa phoned into Hot 97 to clear the air and confirm thatÂ he wasn't bothered by the comment, and thatÂ it was just a harmless joke.
"I donât know if people really knowÂ how much time we spend around each other. Thereâs a thing like, âOh thatâs the first time heâs around him and thatâs what Jay feels about him.â Weâre around each other joking all the time. Itâs not like he wouldnât say that. He would say that whether the TV is on or not.
OfÂ courseÂ I have suits in my closet that I could have put on. I could have looked like everybody else that was there. I could have did that. Actually, we made the best TV moment thatâs been on the Grammys in a long time. I donât mind taking a joke or a jab. Thatâs cool. Iâll get Jay back.[...] All that means is that Jayâs inÂ debtÂ and he owes me like, three rap verses."
If getting clowned by Hov on national TV means a couple more collabos on your album, The-Dream seems to have the right idea.
