"I’m not even naming people because it was fucked up," he told Zane Lowe about Ed Sheeran absolutely bodying a group of "real rappers." He claims that he was not expecting that degree of fire to come out of his mouth.
"One time we went to Toronto and it was him and Belly," says Ty Dolla $ign about The Weeknd. "They both had like the top floor of this, I can't remember what hotel it was, but they had the resident side. And we went up there and he had a bunch of people over and we were playing pool. And he had my man Ed Sheeran over there, and everybody got into like a cipher, freestyling and this fool Ed Sheeran came through and smacked everybody, bro. I'm like, 'What the fuck?' Shout out, Ed. I was surprised. I was not expecting that. But he killed everyone, bro. Like real rappers. I'm not even naming people because it was fucked up. That's my most memorable Weeknd story, man."
