DJ Akademiks is upset with Hot 97’s Ebro Darden and Peter Rosenberg after recently calling him a “talentless hack” on a show.
In true academics style, he went to Twitch to ignite the two radio OGs.
“Rosenberg works for Hot 97, these muthaf * ckas … yo, the Ebros and the Rosenbergs hate my position in culture because Ebro was the place you had to go to get relevance in hip hop,” says Ak. “That wasn’t the case anymore. Do you remember when he was joking? Like, ‘Yo, you’re not a big league, you’re a little league’ and he always determined what music actually had a chance to be seen and heard at the greatest levels. “
ADAM 22 apologizes to AKADEMIKS
“Radio is irrelevant. Now I know he has a very important position at Apple Music, but to be honest, a lot of it only comes from the internet. He has no influence on the media anymore, I think he annoys me for that.”
“You work at Hot 97, you don’t draw half a million a year,” he continued. “That’s three months of wages for me. Don’t try to reduce my work – I actually built something myself and I own it. I don’t work for n * ggas – you don’t own it. The money looks a little different, if you own it. “
He later adds, “I’m constantly changing and influencing the way this culture moves, like it or not, and you’ll be salty like a fuck sitting on your platform. You’re still a worker there, n * gga! I . Kick your n * ggas ass on numbers whenever I want. “
