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 fu*ks 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.
me and the doc back at it again...
