Freddie Gibbs, who has now become infamous for taking digs at hip-hop artistes time and again, decided to reignite his beef with DJ Akademiks over the weekend. The Indiana native took to his Twitter account to take a subtle dig at Akademiks but it soon blew up after the latter decided to revert him back. Soon, the two exchanged a few tweets stirring up chaos on the micro-blogging site.

Since both Freddie and Akademiks enjoy a massive fan following on social media, the Internet got divided as some extended their support to the 39-year-old rapper whereas, others opted for Team Akademiks. The duo first got into a rift in June 2020 and the two have been at each other’s throats ever since. DJ Akademiks had also made headlines for his beef with Philadelphia rapper Meek Mill in December 2020.

Freddie Gibbs reignites beef with DJ Akademiks

It all started when DJ Akademiks shared a video of Kay Flock running into Ron Suno for a fight at Rolling Loud over the weekend. Sharing the same clip, Freddie said, “I hope you post it when I run into you.” Without wasting any time, Freddie shared another post where he claimed that he would have “smoked” Akademiks as his girlfriend had shared his address. He also added that whenever he will get bored he will be back on his “a**”. “I coulda been smoked akademiks. His h** gave me his home address months ago. The (N-word) in LA he was with last week was not gon protect him if I walked in that no jumper interview. I know all of them.  God got bigger plans for me but when I get bored I’m back on yo a**. On VL.”
 
DJ Akademiks did not hesitate to revert to him on Twitter. While replying to his first tweet, Akademiks said, “U still tweeting? U could came to find me already gangsta.” And, again taking to Twitter, he asked Freddie Gibbs to shut up. “Well stfu about s**t u aint finna do.?” The beef between the two hip-hop heads apparently started in June 2020 after Freddie 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. Akademiks, the cohost of the 'Everyday Struggle' show, then swiped back by saying that if Jeezy wasn't a factor anymore, then Gibbs was just as low on the totem pole.

‘Freddie Gibbs is a troll and DJ Akademiks took it too personally’

Hip-hop fans clearly had a ball as they picked their own side. Speaking on the beef, one claimed, “AK you’re not fooling anybody you’re not about s**t lmao.” Another posted, “Freddie don't need the streams he already winnin.” The next one trolled Akademiks, “Don’t you remember what happened last time you got into it with Freddie.”
 
Meanwhile, one user decided to slam Freddie, “Says a lot about Freddie Gibbs that he feels threatened enough by Akademiks to smoke him. On VL? Some weak as** s**t to put on the set. Corny.” On similar lines, one tweeted, “Imagine being stupid enough to say that on the internet for anyone to see.” One posted, “Akademiks was scared of Meek Mill but talkin crazy to Freddie Gibbs.” And, another claimed, “Freddie Gibbs is a troll and dj akademiks took it too personally. akademiks is soft and insecure.” One user concluded, “Thats not an excuse, freddie gibbs trolls everybody, even his fans troll him. akademiks shouldn’t get so defensive over what he had to say.”
