Akademiks Says ‘Overhyped Industry Plant’ Megan Thee Stallion is Only Successful Because She’s ‘A Victim’

Published: Thursday 1st Jul 2021 by Rashad

Megan Thee Stallion trots through the mind of Akademiks quite a bit it seems.

At the top of the year, the blogger/DJ-turned-Web personality sent the rapper’s fans – affectionately called #Hotties – into a frenzy when he said the GRAMMY winner wasn’t ‘100th of the talent’ of her ‘Hot Girl Summer’ co-star Nicki Minaj (as we reported here).

As if the unceremonious slamming he was for that afforded wasn’t enough, he returned for more this week – inciting furor after Stallion’s 2021 BET Award sweep.

See what he said that caused a firestorm of controversy among the #Hotties.

On Sunday (June 27), Meg entered the BET Awards as its most nominated (and later most winning) act of the night (click here to see the full winner’s list).   Later, Akademiks – possibly pressed by the victories – went on a tirade.

“I guess I’ll start by saying this: I am now in belief that Meg Thee Stallion’s career has been propelled, overhyped, and also put on a pedestal because of this whole Black girl magic, protect Black women [movement]. I’m sorry,” he says in the recorded clip.

Referring to her as ‘overhyped’ and ‘an industry plant’ at points during the recording, the 30-year-old asserted her success is the direct result of public sympathy from allegedly being shot by fellow rapper Tory Lanez.

“She just dropped it’s called ‘Good News.’ It’s mid. It’s mid. And if it was anyone we liked that dropped a mid album that wasn’t being seen as a victim who we need to uplift and just act like the fact that she’s doing it is good enough, he said before later continuing, “She could fart on a song and people would be like ‘Oh my god, that is the sweet, sweet, sweet sound of being a victim…protect her, she is Black and she is a woman.’”

Needless to say, his commentary didn’t sit well with #Hotties.

    Megan is a whole thot but DJ Akademiks is a loser with no legacy or fanbase. Who is checking for Dj Akademiks outside of his messy rants?

    Chile these so called men sit online daily reading, roasting, arguing & sipping tea more than the girls nowadays.

    I agree.
    Her rise came as a sudden shock for me tbh.
    I remember my friend sending me a freestyle of her on IG one day and then out of nowhere, the blink of an eye…she’s the next best thing since sliced bread but I won’t lie, I was rooting for her heavy because her flow is undeniable. Or at least at the time it was but now she’s overhyped and overplayed and the theme behind her music is boring.
    Good News was actually more like Bad News imo and really didn’t live up to the hype for such a long awaited album. In comparison to Cardi B who’s an actual good performer, she’s another mediocre talent getting by on the celebration of her personality rather than talent. Her Bet performance was underwhelming and left me wanting more from her. We shall see what the next 2 years hold for her and if she will actually stand the test of time.

      Lmao! You are so fake! If “Switch” was a person. Smh I wish I cared to screen shot all of the LOVE then HATE comments you left about Meg.

  4. eric July 1, 2021

    What sympathy? She was hated by many and called a liar after the shooting.

  5. Fleur July 1, 2021

    HGS, Grammy award winning Savage, Realer, BOF, and so on all happen before any incident. We saw the freestyles and the come up. How is she a plant or for sympathy? Megan Thee Stallion is here to stay.

    I know a industry plant when I see 1. Megan is definitely not 1! I watched her come up organically. Now is she being used by the industry? Sure! But I’m tired of seeing grown men constantly attack women outta left field. It’s getting tired!

    • True Tea July 2, 2021

      Especially grown men who’s claim to fame is being a gossip queen. Dj Akademiks have no empire or legacy to his name yet feel he’s in position to speak on Megan’s alleged music career. You are not a Jay-Z hun.

    • akathexfactor July 2, 2021

      Erica Banks helped meg A LOT with her bars and lyrics early on. Cardi is using meg to pander to the black audience just as much as meg needs cardi’s money. Both are copying off each other and making a mockery out of the rap game. Thot this and thot that, nothing else to see!

    Ok but he didn’t lie tho. She is an industry plant put in place by Jay-Z now. He’s part of the illuminati and obviously has enough power to propell her.

    • True Tea July 2, 2021

      Jay-Z grew up in poverty, he is not apart of the Illuminati who has generational wealth boo.

      It’s funny when I see people claiming black people have an aristocrat bloodline while all the history books claim black people were poor slaves in America. 🤷

      Even If Megan Thee Stallion is an industry plant, she’s most def not the only one, so what is the point? And what about the 69 rapper? Will Dj Akademiks call him out on his f*ckery & how he’s exploiting the Hip-Hop culture.

    Hmmmm I can’t say that I disagree with this! I just told someone Doja is wayyyy better artistry wise yet she keep getting slept on and Megan gets all the awards. And I told them she getting sympathy because of losing her family and the shooting. Doja really deserves all those awards Meg got. I’m not gone say she don’t deserve some talent but she hasn’t proven herself to me as a consumer. Some songs I like but all she talk about is shaking ass, cash, drinking, and f******. That’s about it. No versatility nothing that gives me depth. So I agree she is overhyped when you got Doja Cat giving us everything!!!! Looks, fashion, choreo (stage), versatility, and creative as f*** visuals!!!! I wouldn’t be as harsh as the DJ but I definitely feel she overhyped like s***!

  9. Issy July 2, 2021

    Happy for Meg’s success. She deserves it. If they not hating you ain’t working!

  10. Keith July 2, 2021

    Might not be the right messenger, but the message is right on time except for the fame from victim status. Meg been hustlin’ for awhile. Let us not equate hustling with being supremely talented….

  11. J July 2, 2021

    I been on since Stalli Freestyle and her initial hype was organic, I just found her on YouTube

    Now she has label support and clearly that makes a huge difference especially when you were already hot beforehand

    If we are calling her a plant then the entire Hot 100 is as well

    These crusty ass n***** are going crazy right now and I’m not here for the s*** AT ALL

    • Shayla Queen™ 👑 July 2, 2021

      Then girl bye 👋🏽 Sensitive pants

  12. June Osborne July 2, 2021

  13. Jeffrey G Scarberry July 3, 2021

    I totally agree with dude. She is definitely low class and full of trash. 🗑.
