In a recent Rumble livestream, popular media personality Akademiks took the opportunity to voice his thoughts on Erykah Badu while discussing the 10-year prison sentence of Tory Lanez in connection to the Megan Thee Stallion shooting incident.
During the livestream, Akademiks noticed a comment from an Instagram user urging Badu to use her influence, which was prompted by reports alleging that the podcaster had leaked confidential information from Tory Lanez’s camp during the high-profile legal case.
This comment served as a trigger for Akademiks, who then proceeded to launch into a vehement verbal tirade directed at the R&B singer. It’s important to note that Badu had famously compared Akademiks to the cartoon character from “Tom & Jerry” during an appearance on Complex’s “Everyday Struggle” in 2017.
Addressing Badu, Akademiks started with a strong statement: “Erykah Badu, let me tell you this: you keep my name out your mouth too.” He emphasized that the past reference to their interaction was from a different era, and he’s now willing to confront any adversaries. “Listen, that little Everyday Struggle sh**, that was another era, my n***a. I’m down to violate all you n***as these days. F*** what y’all got going on. You don’t mention my name, please. I don’t f*** with you neither.”
The media personality went on to express his longstanding displeasure, stating “I never f***ed with Erykah Badu after she was tryna come on my show and be funny. B****, I don’t f*** with you after that. N***a, wassup now? What we finna do? Bitch, you a old-a*** hoe, just keep getting f***ed by all these young n***as.”
Akademiks also raised the question, “How many rappers done ran through you?,” He was alluding to Badu’s well-known relationships with André 3000, Common, Jay Electronica, and The D.O.C.
