DJ Akademiks Responds To ‘Dusty’ Remarks In New Podcast

In an episode of his Off The Record With DJ Akademiks podcast, he addressed the backlash over his “dusty” remarks about old rappers in an episode titled “Letter to LL Cool J.”

He appeared to triple down on his earlier remarks.

“I feel like the last generation — multiple generations of Hip Hop artists — has failed the new generation. That’s why I think it’s the blind leading the blind. That’s why I don’t think older artists should be criticizing or really have any leg to stand on even if y’all call yourself pioneers to criticize how new artists are moving,” he said.

His new remarks will upset everyone yet again. Here’s what he said initially that got everybody so riled up.

“Them old rappers, man. Have you seen any of these old rappers who be like, yo, they’re the foundation of Hip Hop really living good?” he said. “Them n-ggas be looking really dusty, I kid you not. And none of y’all try to come for me ’cause I don’t fuck with y’all n-ggas either, so I’m just telling y’all the truth.”

He continued: “Every time there be like an old, old n-gga talking about Hip Hop, you be like, ‘Yo, bro. You sure you invented this? ‘Cause everybody else is looking better than you.’ Facts!”
