The messy feud between DJ Akademiks and Saucy Santana doesn’t have any winners. Neither of them will come out of this looking good. Now, a legend has made her thoughts on the situation clear. In case you have a life and don’t spend all your time following internet nonsense, let’s start at the beginning.
Without anyone caring or asking, the streamer decided to offer his thoughts on City Girls’ new album, RAW. He poked fun at their low sales saying they were “completely over with.” On Sunday, Santana responded on his Instagram Story and things spiraled out of control from there, with threats flying back and forth between the two. This led Akademiks to post a seemingly emotional stream on Wednesday night where he said in part, “I’m trying not to get canceled, but this shit does bother me…I gotta sit here and just act like I don’t fuck with certain shit. I would never like it. Just please.”
On Thursday, Queen Latifah took exception with his stream, sharing a post on her Instagram Story that called out Akademiks for his repeated attacks on Black women. Which is how this whole mess started by the way.
“It’s crazy to me how DJ Akademiks is crying scared to say anything to Saucy Santana because he’s a gay man and he’s scared of getting ‘canceled,’ but has said some of the most outlandish, vile, disrespectful, and demeaning things to Black women with absolutely no fear whatsoever,” the post reads. “Brings me back to Malcolm X’s quote: ‘The most disrespected, unprotected, and neglected person [in] America is the Black woman!’”
This user is absolutely right. It’s ludicrous for him to get all emotional about being canceled when he’s built his career on harassing Black women. Erykah Badu, Megan Thee Stallion and Yung Miami are just a few of the high-profile artists he’s targeted. As Valerie Complex noted on X f.k.a. Twitter, “Do you know how rotten you have to be for QUEEN LATIFAH , who, is known for minding her business, to call out?! Do you understand how embarrassing this is for AK?”
And before he gets any ideas, he don’t want that smoke from the Queen. She’s The Equalizer, Cleo from Set it Off and the woman who brought us “U.N.I.T.Y.” She’s way out of his league.
