Nicki Minaj and DJ Akademiks has been a pair of unexpected foes and there is no love lost between them. The two have fought barbs on social media before, and the podcast host even posted purported texts the rapper sent to him in 2019.

Minaj is accused of threatening Akademiks and his family, and in a new interview with VladTV, he revisits their tumultuous history. Vlad witnessed the threatening DMs purportedly sent to Akademiks by Minaj, commenting on how bizarre it was to hear a “female talk that gangster sh-t.”

You know why Nicki’s good? I wanna say great…her audience, and she has the best audience in Hip Hop, them Barbz, they will never believe anything—and Nicki does a good job of not making it apparent. You ‘heard’ it, you didn’t ‘see’ it. So, like, when you say it, her audience is gonna take it as, ‘Oh, you’re just hating on Nicki.’

Vlad pointed out the reports or gossip that is usually shared about the rapper and how it was contrary to what he just read. He went on to say that it was cowardly of Nicki. Minaj’s fanbase is so solid, according to Akademiks, that if she isn’t the victim, no one believes it.


Vlad chimed in with a comparison of the Barbz to Michael Jackson’s supporters who refuse to believe his children aren’t biologically his. Jackson’s followers, according to Akademiks, are unique in that they are willing to accept the singer’s flaws. Take a look at the video below.
