YouTube Star Akademiks is not a big fan of rapper Megan Thee Stallion and that really isn’t a secret. The DJ was recently interviewed by Rachel Lindsay and co-host Van Lathan on Higher Learning.
During the interview, Lindsay mentioned Akademiks’ previous remarks about rapper Megan Thee Stallion where he called her an overrated artist and that she lacks the lyrical skills of most of the rapper’s peers in the Hip-Hop industry, especially Nicki Minaj.
Akademiks really tore into Megan Thee Stallion and doubled down on calling her overrated and nowhere near Nicki Minaj’s level.
“I don’t remember all the quotes. No, that sounds good. One hundred percent. I stand by that.
“I think Meg Thee Stallion is really overrated as actually an artist. I’ve always thought that. I do think the level that she is discussed on when we’re comparing and talking about only Rap, is a byproduct of a lot of industry ties that she has that has kind of lifted her up to be a super-celebrity, which is cool in that realm, but when we just talk about music, it’s not there.”
“Again, I’m not saying things without merit, We can’t really talk about no Meg Thee Stallion project that could come close to Pink Friday. We can’t even talk about any top any Meg Thee Stallion verses that would come close to the top ten Nicki verses. So, again, when I see how, in the last year, she has elevated—and keep in mind in 2019, or maybe actually early 2020, I could be wrong on both dates so don’t kill me, she sold like, 27,000. This is the time when they were saying like, ‘Listen.’ It was Hot Girls versus City Girls, they were saying she’s such a huge star and whatever.
While he understood the call to “uplift Black women,” Akademiks also said:
“When are we gonna talk about some facts?”
Those were certainly some scalding words said by Akademiks and it is likely none of Megan Thee Stallion’s fans will agree with one word he said.
