"I want to thank the swap meet for his hat," the rapper said, poking fun at Dream's "Parental Advisory" beanie and "Boyz N the Hood" cap.

"He's actually pretty funny and comedic all the time. We kind of take digs all the time, that doesn't surprise me at all. I'm probably more surprised that people are actually talking about it," the rapper told Shaun.

As for a comeback, The-Dream doesn't need one - thanks to Beyonce.

"Beyonce asked me where I got both hats from because she wanted them. So, that's the get back. So it's over with now. It's like, I won," he explained.
