DJ Akademiks talks about the backlash he received after calling some hip-hop pioneers “dusty” and his comments on Reginae Carter’s relationship

Comments made by DJ Akademiks during one of his recent live streams upset some people, and they took to social media to call him out. He now talks about his comments and his backlash in a new interview with “the breakfast club.”

As previously reported, Hip-Hop pioneers like LL Great J Y Russell Simmons took to social media to address Akademiks after audio from one of his live streams went viral when he was heard calling some Hip-Hop pioneers “dusty.” It was assumed that she was speaking in reference to his finances. However, Akademiks said the context of his comments was omitted.

“I was talking about getting through the game,” he said. “He was talking about educating the next generation instead of criticizing them. And I was like sometimes you guys don’t understand why you don’t listen to them. One of the reasons they might not listen to you… they’ll screw it up, whether it’s signing a contract, a bad contract, or whatever trap you find yourself in in this game if you never get past it. You never passed on that knowledge.”

He went on to admit that the “broken and dusty” comment he made is triggering and disrespectful.

Akademiks even went on to say hi to LL Cool J and said that everything he said in response to his comment was correct, however about 80 percent of what LL said was not focused on what he said. [Akademiks] was saying at the time of his live broadcast.

“I never question the contribution or don’t appreciate the contribution of someone who came before me, and I never say that money is the only thing that validates that contribution,” he said.

When it comes to Reginae Carter’s current relationship, Akademiks also shared that he understood why Toya Johnson was upset that she talked about her daughter.

He explained that he didn’t necessarily call Reginae Carter ab**ch, but he did talk about his current relationship with Armon Warren, which has been publicized on social media. She commented on how Armon and Reginae’s ex YFN Lucci are complete opposites. She admitted that she said the b-word, but quickly backed off afterwards.

He said, “I shouldn’t say that because his name was slightly associated with it.”
