DJ Akademiks is one of the biggest social media influencers in the entire hip-hop game. It’s been seen by fans as a one-stop shop for all the gossip, beef, and news they’re looking for. Now, the @akademiks account has vanished completely.

When users try to visit the Instagram, it simply returns a message that says the page isn’t available. Akademiks has a secondary account, @iamakademiks. He went there to let fans know that he’s as in the dark as they are.

“Speaking wit ig reps to figure out wats going on. Follow @djakademikstv til further updates.”

Akademiks is one of the most cited sources in hip-hop news. He’s opinionated, and often finds himself at the center of the very public beefs he covers. He has a huge following, and his influence is undeniable.

It’s unknown if Akademiks was banned from the site or some sort of mistake or technical glitch occurred. If it was a ban, it makes no sense, as the secondary account is verified, so they know it exists. The whole thing is a gigantic mystery.

Hopefully, Instagram gets back to Akademiks soon. It would be a shame to a following he worked so hard for just disappear for no reason. Fans will have to sit tight for now as we await further updates on the account.

What do you think happened to Akademiks’ IG account? Let us know in the comments!
