Late Monday night, Complex’s own, DJ Akademiks took to Twitter to call out Nicki Minaj for her threats against him, as part of a longstanding beef between the two.
“Nicki Minaj just put a hit on me…if anything happens…or I miss a meal…SHE DID IT,” Akademiks wrote on Twitter, as fans flocked to his mentions for more tea. “Nicki hasn’t been able to put out a hit in years, you’ll be fine,” a user joked, as Akademiks agreed, but maintained that the issue was more serious than otherwise suspected.
“Broo…Thats true…No solo hit but still…This ain’t no Joke….i’m the last real nigga here…all these niggas get in line. I need life insurance,” he added.
The beef between the two seemingly stems from Akademiks’ comments and criticisms about Minaj’s music and tenure in the game. In fact, just a few weeks ago, Minaj addressed Joe Budden with similar sentiments, which stemmed from his time on Complex’s ‘Everyday Struggle.’
But now, the disagreement has seemingly escalated to violence after Minaj reportedly pulled up in Akademiks’ DMs.
“You gonna be in NY this coming week,” Minaj wrote on Friday, to which Ak replied, “Yup.” Three days later, Minaj reappeared, saying, “You been mad since I made a joke about u with Joe on my show. The people u rep won’t be able to stop ya jaw from getting broke.”
“I know too much about ur family for u to be playing with me u hoe ass rat. Where u at now,” she asked, to which Ak replied, “noted.”
As the two continued to exchange messages about Ak’s location, Minaj made mention about the blogger’s relationship with Tekashi69. “Exactly. Hoe. Still sad Tekashi ain’t here no more so u can try to get sneak feels on his booty. Don’t talk on a woman then run from a man. I’m glad it’s received rat. It won’t be the only thing you will recieve.”
“Sure . Don’t play the woman card on me. I criticized ur ex (meek) mad times while you were with him,” Akademiks responded. “I’ve criticized everyone. I’m petty like the best of em n so r u. I know. I know how to dish it n take it.”
As Ak continued to explain, Minaj demanded his address before she fired off even more allegations, saying, “Last time I was in the studio with 69 he told me he could tell that you were really hoping he was gay in real life and that you really tried to touch him in that pool.”
“The reason you mad is due to me and him being close before he went to jail. I didn’t mean to hang out with your ‘boyfriend in your head’ I only meant to do a dope song. Please post that part too Alvin & the Chipfunk. You got be hurt hurt.”
After the back and forth, Ak live streamed his reaction on Twitch and even shared screenshots of the message, which were met will allegations of photoshop, as barbs questioned the layout of the messages, which failed to include a video icon. But, in response, Ak shared a video of himself scrolling through the messages to prove the validity.
If that wasn’t enough, the blogger took to his Complex show to further explain the situation, saying, “Nicki is having a break down. She’s at the point where the shoe that nearly connected with her dome that was thrown by Cardi, got her out of wack.”
“She’s now threatening bloggers,” he said, as he explained his initial interaction with the superstar, in which he believed she was interested in meeting up for an interview. But, upon his response, Ak said she immediately hit him with static.
Although he was unaware where Minaj’s anger came from, he acknowledged that he’s been stating some “truths” about Minaj’s music, as of late. “Nicki Minaj solo songs are flopping, they are not good. I’ve said that she doesn’t make at this point good songs, she is still a phenomenal rapper,” he said, adding, “Also, every time you hear her bragging about these accolades, it’s someone else’s song.”
He also said that he said she’s “obsessed” with Cardi B, before he addressed Minaj’s allegations. “Nicki exposed me,” he said, being funny about his relationship about 69.
“I’ve never seen an artist being this bothered,” he said, as he criticized how she’s intimidating bloggers. But, in the meantime, he will be avoiding both Nicki and her husband, even though she reportedly reached out to a few people to talk afterwards.
