(AllHipHop News) DJ Akademiks is probably in the internet cross-hairs of Nicki Minaj's Barbz fanbase at the moment. The Everyday Struggle host recently blasted Nicki during a livestream after she referred to him as a "chipmunk" and Joe Budden's "sidekick" on Queen Radio.
"'Megatron' flopped," said Akademiks. "'Megatron' went on the charts and fell the f*ck off in four weeks. She can't stay on the charts unless it's a remix or somebody's song who's already been popping." He later added, "Your music, when you're making full songs, is old and regurgitated."
Nicki's latest solo single, "Megatron," debuted at #20 in July before falling 72 spots to #92 the following week. The song is no longer present on the Hot 100 chart. This week, Megan Thee Stallion's "Hot Girl Summer" featuring Minaj and Ty Dolla $ign opened at #11.
Akademiks went on to compare Nicki Minaj to her current arch rival Cardi B. He said, "You can rap better than Cardi, but Cardi is making better songs. This is 2019. N*ggas care about songs."
While the YouTube commentator referred to Nicki as a queen and a legend, he also claimed the New York-raised rapper is "washed, "obsessed with Cardi B," and a "professional victim." Ak then claimed he would spend the next few months highlighting Minaj's music failures.
