Akademiks Calls Megan Thee Stallion “Overrated,” Can’t Compare To Nicki Minaj

Published: Friday 5th Mar 2021 by Ryan

Akademiks has found himself in some controversy.

In an interview with Rachel Lindsay and Van Lathan for ‘Higher Learning,’ Lindsay read off Akademiks words where he stated that Megan Thee Stallion is overrated and doesn’t have the lyrical skills of some of her peers such as Nicki Minaj. This lead Ak to respond.

His words below…

“I don’t remember all the quotes. No, that sounds good. One hundred percent, I stand by that.”

“I think Meg Thee Stallion is really overrated as actually an artist. I’ve always thought that. I do think the level that she is discussed on when we’re comparing and talking about only Rap, is a byproduct of a lot of industry ties that she has that has kind of lifted her up to be a super-celebrity, which is cool in that realm, but when we just talk about music, it’s not there.”

“Again, I’m not saying things without merit. We can’t really talk about no Meg Thee Stallion project that could come close to ‘Pink Friday.’ We can’t even talk about any top any Meg Thee Stallion verses that would come close to the top ten Nicki verses. So, again, when I see how, in the last year, she has elevated—and keep in mind in 2019, or maybe actually early 2020, I could be wrong on both dates so don’t kill me, she sold like, 27,000. This is the time when they were saying like, ‘Listen.’ It was Hot Girls versus City Girls, they were saying she’s such a huge star and whatever.”

While Akademiks goes on to explain that he understands that uplifting Black women in the industry is important, he also added, “When are we gonna talk about some facts?”

    Smh he’s tryna pit Megan against Nicki, & stir up drama, he did the same thing when Cardi came out. Funny how he praises Cardi but disses Megan. He isn’t wrong with what he said however he let Cardi get a HUGE pass so why not Megan when she can raps circles around her.

      Cardi won ascap writing awards so stfu please

      • Guaposhutter73 March 5, 2021

        This in itself is a oxymoron

  3. Unnatural March 5, 2021

    Agreed. Critique her work is not tearing her down. Megan’s music is terrible. Tiktok and Beyonce saved Savage. Any feature she is on, she drags down. The 34+35 remox is evident of that. I dont understand why this girl is so big. I give her credit for writing her own stuff at least. Unlike Cardi B.

    • DC March 5, 2021

      Cardi has ascap awards for her writing please shut up

    • Meme March 5, 2021

      The lord. Savage was hot from that project drop. It was big without a video, without a release. And it didn’t need Beyonce. It was already a top 5 hit.

      • Oliver March 5, 2021

        But it will never go number 1 if it was not for beyonce wave and beyonce owns the songs once she featured on it . And the remix outsell outperform and the remix are nominated for awards not the original thanks. But It will at least be big top 5 songs that’s just that

  4. Justme March 5, 2021

    When Meg would agree with this. She has alot of growing to do.. what was the point of him saying this.

  5. Susan March 5, 2021

    Rachel has been involved in a lot of drama lately with podcasts….

  6. DC March 5, 2021

    Agree very overrated

  7. Urg March 5, 2021

    Of course she cant compare to Nicki Minaj. Nicki sourounds herself with sêx offenders her husband, her brother Takashei 69…

  8. Carl March 5, 2021

    She’s just boring to me

  9. Meme March 5, 2021

    Why are we always comparing these girls? If you don’t feel Meg is good that’s fine, but don’t drag Nicki into this. We over this comparison.

  10. Tori March 5, 2021

    Can we be done with the Nicki comparisons? You Don’t compare men half as much, not that they’re any good. The fact that every female rapper has to be compared to Nicki when Nicki don’t compare to herself past 2011 IS TELLING‼️He didn’t even like Nicki a few years ago but feels like she’s the standard? Meg needs to continue developing as an artist, she doesn’t need to become a carbon copy of Onika. Keep in mind the only reason she’s even on a break is because she’s been miserably flopping and creating bad press for the last 2-2 1/2 years.

  11. DivineWun March 5, 2021

    She is overrated but the Nicki comparison was unnecessary.

    Meg’s hype and “accolades” don’t match up with her numbers. She’s more of a think piece than an actually success story. I will say Roc Nation is working overtime. Smoke n mirrors….

  12. DC March 5, 2021
