Vic Mensa Calls Out DJ Akademiks To His Face For Sensationalizing Chicago Violence (VIDEO)
(AllHipHop News) Chicago rapper Vic Mensa was the most recent guest on Complex News’ online talk show Everyday Struggle.
Mensa did not bite his tongue while addressing the show’s co-host DJ Akademiks.
“I wanted to slap you in your face,” Vic said to Akademiks when he was asked about the media’s promotion of violence in Chicago Drill rappers’ music.
The Roc Nation artist did not stop his takedown of Ak with just those comments.
“People exactly like you sensationalized and made a following off of clowning situations that we go through in real life,” added Mensa. “I think n-ggas ain’t have no right. You specifically, you ain’t never have a right. Whatever made you feel like you had a space to have a perspective on our people dying on a daily basis?”
Vic later stated in response to an Akademiks video about the death of his childhood friend Tray 57, “To tell you the truth, I really think you’re a b-tch.”
Mensa then relayed to Akademiks he would probably get chased out of any mall in Chicago.
Ak replied by saying his content includes satire and advice about the violence in the city.
“You know what’s f-cked up about it and why I said the things I said to you is because were we to be in a room and there’s no cameras or security, you wouldn’t make no jokes,” said The Manuscript creator.
Mensa also suggested Ak behaves like a “parasitic” culture vulture.
In addition, he told DJ Akademiks, “It’s just kind of sick when it’s real people dying young. I’m at those funerals. I just left one of those funerals on Friday.”
This is not the first time DJ Akademiks has been called out by someone in the industry.
Earlier this month, Top Dawg Entertainment president Terrence “Punch” Henderson blasted the popular internet personality over his statements about TDE singer SZA.
MMG’s Wale also claimed on an episode of Everyday Struggle that DMV rap fans do not support Akademiks after Shy Glizzy dissed the New Jersey resident on his “Cut It (Freestyle).”
“I know every DJ but this p-ssy Akademiks,” rapped Glizzy.
