Freddie Gibbs and DJ Akademiks’ long-running feud has most recently centered on Gibbs’ beef with Gunna. Gunna’s Freddie insult appeared on his recent DS4EVER album, and Akademiks had some fun with it, claiming that the project would sell more than any Freddie Gibbs record in history.

In its first week, DS4EVER is expected to sell 144,000 copies, placing it second on the Billboard 200 chart behind The Weeknd’s Dawn FM. Gunna raps on the third track, “poochie gown,” that he “can’t f**k with Freddie Gibbs, n****s tellin’ fibs,” and he had tweeted prior to the album’s release that it would be “the biggest moment of his career.”

After the album’s sales forecasts were released, Akademiks agreed, and tweeted to Freddie Gibbs to let him know.

@FreddieGibbs this the biggest first week sales your name gonna be associated with. Thanks to Wunna… he mentioned u. Now drop ya lame ass album and lets see u flop.

Freddie’s feud with Gunna began after Freddie accused him of being a snitch after he appeared on the Crime Stoppers television show. Following that, just hours before the release of DS4EVER, the two had a Twitter spat, with Akademiks piggybacking on Gunna’s thrown shots.

Soul Sold Separately, which Freddie has been hyping for a while, is the album that Akademiks mentions in his tweet. His most recent joint album, Alfredo, with producer Alchemist, sold 30,000 copies in its first week, indicating that Akademiks is correct in his prediction that SSS will not be able to surpass Gunna in album sales. However, because Freddie Gibbs’ music has never been aimed at a popular rap audience, it’s unlikely that Gibbs is concerned with his commercial sales figures.
