DJ Akademiks maybe got more backlash than expected with his his recent comments about Hip Hop pioneers being “dusty.”
Always with a strong voice with hot takes in the world of hip hop, Akademiks has done it again speaking on the daughter of rap legend Lil’ Wayne.
His rant also included taking aim at the hip hop foundation that built the cornerstone of the genre. The commentary reached rap legends such as LL Cool J, who jumped on social media to address what he believed was disrespectful.

Akademiks joined The Breakfast Club to discuss many topics that also include his conversation mentioned above. With some self reflection, the popular podcast host admitted he may have gone over the top about the pioneers of rap. He even states he is willing to talk to LL Cool J after the television star and Def Jam icon spoke harshly to him.
“I’m down to talk to LL,” said Ak. “T.I. reached out, too. We’re going to have an official talk. But it’s his birthday, so he didn’t want to do too much today.”
It’s unclear if T.I. reached out about this topic because he definitely called on Akademiks after the blogger had some things to say about Reginae’s dating history. Akademiks alleged that she dropped YFN Lucci once his RICO case hit, much like other “b*tches” have done.
