Weeknd also had a fallout with Doc Mckinney who produced a majority of the work on Trilogy.

They had a falling out in 2011 shortly after Thursday was released. That week Doc tweeted this...

"@docmckinney seems like the ego always ####s up a good thing. 18 months ago ..."

Something obviously went down and Abel made Angelo the solo producer for EOS (So if you're wondering why it wasn't up to par with the first two that was the reason).

Abel tweeted : - @theweekndxo "i wanna thank @ANGELO for sticking through until the end... i couldn't have done it without you.." when the Tape dropped that night as if it was Doc who bailed out on him lol anyway...

On July 6th they made up

Someone told me that Angelo and close friends convinced Abel to put his ego aside and reconcile with Doc as he wasn't too comfortable working with many outside producers, plus the backlash he was getting because of EOS and how it didn't sound like HOB and Thursday. He had already lost Zodiac & it wouldn't have been wise for him to lose Doc too.

They started working together again in late July. He produced the 3 Trilogy tracks.

@theweeknd
me and the doc back at it again...

I heard The Weeknd borrowed one of Drake DVD's and brought it back scratched.

Then when Drake said something about it, Weeknd tried to act like it was already scratched before he borrowed it..

All down hill from there.

Weeknd didnt want to sign to Drakes OVO label and signed to Universal Republic instead, Drake took Weekend to see baby about a record deal and Weeknd refused it.

"No new ni##as, ni##a we dont feel that
#### a fake friend where ya real friends at"

"Cause I show love, never get the same outta ni##as
Guess it's funny how money can make change outta ni##as
Some nobody started feeling himself"

Read all 3 pages... my ni##a Weeknd is feeling himself already

Right. When you two first met, was Abel’s creative direction heading in the same direction it has been over the past year?
No. When I met him I heard some of the stuff that he was doing. It was called the Noise. Remember that? It came out after he broke. It was this group, with him and another producer and it was called the Noise. They were a straight kind of R&B, just really light and kind of candlelight… [sings] “I wanna see you in your birthday suit”… And I was just like, “Aw, #### that ####. No man, let’s talk about, ####in’ and getting too high and trying to #### ####es and it not working out. Let’s get really grimy about it.
LMAO... I've heard that birthday suit song. It's cool but Weeknd wouldn't be where he's at now going with that direction. The three new songs on Trilogy were dope so I'm hoping we're still going to get more dope Weeknd.

Basically. Weeknd wouldnt have been ANYWHERE without Drake and thats a fact.

^Word to the two above posts

Outside of BX, I heard NOTHING of or from The Weeknd until Take Care. Drake didn't make me a fan but he did introduce me to him.

Drake had Birdman to offer a deal to The Weeknd and the ni##a didnt sign... after that Drke tweeted this:


*tweet embedded



then all the OVOXO #### Drake and Weeknd had stopped, the OVOXO shirts Drake sold on his website were replace by the "No New Friends" shirts


*tweet embedded
