DJ Akademiks Speaks! And Explains.

DJ Akademiks

DJ Akademiks is talking about calling rap pioneers “dusty.” He’s also agreed to talk to LL Cool J.

Finally, we get to hear from DJ Akademiks. The DJ who is not a DJ did an interview today with The Breakfast Club. Yes, Charlamagne and DJ Envy did this interview and did a pretty good job. They talked to the current bad boy of rap and got his take on calling pioneers dusty and broke.

Well, I will say this, he explained himself well. I do not think he is going to be able to change some peoples’ minds and I think that the damage is done. I am not even saying I agree, but this is much more than a quick hot take. I do believe he brought up some very interesting points and explained himself in a way that is reasonable and sensible. I am pretty sure he understands the Internet by this point and knows what will incite and elicit a response from people. I don’t think that he did this on purpose.

What I do find to be somewhat cool is that some of the older gods of Hip-Hop are talking to him. Most notably T.I. has reached out. He’s agreed to talk to LL Cool J. I do believe that AK made a good point in discerning what his statements were versus what the Internet said.

He also talked about this other situation with Reginae Carter. And that is one I am not ask familiar with. Basically he use the B-word with her and as you know, that is Lil Wayne‘s daughter. But, Akademiks defended his use of said word because she is a public figure. He said we can call his mom a B if she becomes a public figure. OK. I watched this interview for quite a while, but I did stop somewhere around the halfway point.

The reason I am putting this on the site is because we always play fair and we don’t generally take sides. I definitely want DJ Akademiks to be able to articulate his real point and speak his peace

So, here it is!
