Despite having a documented history of dissing Rap Queen Nicki Minaj, DJ Akademiks made headlines recently for finally “bowing down to kiss the ring” – but not without doing so at the expense of other female rappers.
No stranger for earning negative reviews for his controversial opinions, the popular Urban culture commentator expressed disappointment for the “low bar” set for femcees over the last year. An interesting position given that female Rap hit unprecedented highs in 2020.
“The popular female rappers in 2020, the bar was this low,” said Akademiks. “Truth be told, for all the male rappers, if it was on some Juwanna Man sh*t and could f*ckin’ trick the game and just have a big f*ckin’ fat ass and people think they’re a female and just wear like, a ton of lace fronts and f*ckin’ wigs and throw on a sh*t ton of lipgloss, yeah, the skill level is here.”
Later in his rant, he homed in on Minaj’s ‘Hot Girl Summer’ co-star Megan Thee Stallion by claiming the Hot Girl Coach had ‘lazy bars’ and was succesful because she was ‘a victim.’
That’s not all he said. Look inside to see just what got Stallion’s fans, affectionately called Hotties, blazing keyboards in defense of the Houston-born rapstress.
‘Saweetie is one of the people that benefits from the fact that she’s really attractive; she’s likable. She’s dating one of the hottest rappers from a rap group,” he said. Truth be told; she’s making simplistic music of what women want to hear. Do I hear tremendous talent? No.”
“Let’s be very clear. Meg the Stallion can’t rap with the Top 20 n*ggas. Facts!” exclaimed Ak. “Imma tell y’all the truth. So, of course, she’s like, oh, everybody loves her and sh*t like that but come on man, there’s a lot that goes into sh*t like that. She got a Fashion Nova deal, she’s a victim, she’s in GQ, she’s talking about Tory [Lanez] shot her, you know what I mean? It’s women empowerment. This is like, protect Black women. This is, ‘I got Beyoncé.’ It’s a lot of sh*t going on.”
Continuing on Meg, Akademiks said:
“I’ve heard Meg The Stallion verses that impress me and I’ve heard some of those freestyles, I love some of her freestyles,” Akademiks stated. “But the majority of the sh*t I be listening to I’m like, ‘This sh*t is really like, mid-level music that people are praising like Meg is like, mad dope.'”
“That’s just facts… Meg has one flow and lazy bars.”
“Meg isn’t 100th of the talent that Nicki Minaj is,” he proclaimed. “[She] came in the game on some other sh*t” and “could stand toe-to-toe with any n*gga…”
Needless to say, the statements didn’t sit well with the ‘Savage’ hitmaker’s fans. Look below to see their reaction to Akademik’s weigh-in.
