DJ Akademiks and Freddie Gibbs epic feud on social media has fans getting the popcorn out
DJ Akademiks and the rapper Freddie Gibbs recently started feuding on social media, and then began trending on Twitter after their battle of words soon descended into a downward spiral of nasty jibes. The beef seems to have started soon after the rapper Freddie Gibbs recently declared in an interview with Bootleg Kev that his former boss and CTE World label owner, the rapper Jeezy (formerly Young Jeezy) was no longer relevant in the music industry.
Gibbs contentiously said, "Jeezy is musically irrelevant,” and continued, “Let’s be real, dawg. Did you listen to his last album? No you f***ing didn’t. He’s a legend but right now, you’re irrelevant.” He also told Jeezy, "I love you, fam... But you can’t fight me, out rap me. Any [n-word] that can’t out rap me or beat me up, I don’t give a f*** about."
Soon after that, DJ Akademiks, the cohost of the 'Everyday Struggle' show, swiped back by saying that if Jeezy wasn't a factor anymore, then Gibbs was just as low on the totem pole. In a recent episode of 'Everyday Struggle', DJ Akademiks stated, “If Jeezy is irrelevant, Freddie Gibbs, you are absolutely irrelevant as well.” Even though his co-hosts Nadeska Alexis and Wayno disagreed with him, Akademiks added, “If Jeezy drop an album right now, he sell 50,000... Relevancy means is your music actually doing anything. And to be honest, other than the few people who f*** with Freddie Gibbs, what relevancy does he have?”
DJ Akademik's comments didn't seem to hold any water, because Freddie Gibbs's recent album, 'Alfredo', which was a joint release with Alchemist on May 29, sold over 30,000 copies within a week, and even peaked at No. 15 on the Billboard 200 chart. So it came as no surprise when Gibbs came back at DJ Akademiks with some harsh words of his own on social media, claiming he would pay $5,000 to any woman who admitted they had slept with DJ Akademiks.
"I'll give a bad b***h 5k if they admit to sleeping with @Akademiks," read Gibbs' recent post. To which Akademiks replied, “Freddie…don’t play urself…u no even more successful more than me. Relax ur self kid. U underground. Don’t try to ever play me. If u really wanna try me…a BLOGGER. Let’s go." He added, "Bring all ur statements of how much you made as a rapper... and I’ll bring up tax statements of what I made as a BLOGGER. and let's compare. U can’t compare to Jeezy…he been lit for mad years. U a lil [n-word]. and i Doubt u compare 2 me. But… Drop ur shit… I’m down. Mr Gibbs."
Gibbs promptly replied, “My son’s room bigger than yo house bitch stop it,” to which Akademiks said, “We can actually post proof to find out if thats actually. My new house is 8500 sqft. I bet you $20,000.00 that your son room aint bigger than that. Put ur money where ur mouth is.”
After Akademiks tried to convince Gibbs to share his financial details, Gibbs hilariously told him to provide evidence he didn’t have oral sex with Tekashi 6ix9ine, Aks’ current best friend who was recently released from jail. He also told him "Shut the f*** up [n-word] I'm not Vic Mensa," seemingly referring to this viral moment from 'Everyday Struggle' when Vic Mensa cut DJ Akademiks down to size.
“Ur so funny,” Akademiks parried. “I’ll let u have that joke... its a popular one. Just never mention relevancy again... cuz u not relevant... u finally did over 10k u talking like u big boy. u a lil artist. a lil [n-word]. Not top 10. Not top 20. U on the outskirts. Should b Happy to be here.[sic]” Akademiks then even invited Freddie Gibbs to appear on his show 'Everyday Struggle'. To which Gibbs replied, “Imma squeeze yo titties on camera” before telling Akademiks he was “built like a Teletubby.”
Fans were obviously quite entertained by this hilarious exchange, with fans saying, "Akademiks doesn't know what he's talking bout 😂😂" and "Akademiks is a clown 🤣🤣". Another fan said, "Akademiks BIG 🧢… Freddie easily top 10. One of the most lyrical and versatile rappers in the game. Tf is @akademiks talkin about 😂." As another Gibbs admirer concluded, "Gibbs got more money than most think. @akademiks is a b*** always talking bout money and d*** riding mainstream artists and wave rappers that don't f*** with him. He is terrible for the culture. Anyone who references money when we talking bout skill and quality of music is stagnant and not for the culture. Boycott Wackademiks 2020 and forever."
