Last week, the media personality infuriated half of the culture when he called Hip Hop's founders "dusty" and stated their worth was defined by how much money they had in their bank accounts.
On Monday (September 26), Akademiks appeared on The Breakfast Club to address a variety of things, including his ill-advised remarks.
The matter was swiftly explored by hosts DJ Envy and Charlamagne Tha God, with Envy questioning him, "You really gonna piss on everybody?"
Whilst Akademiks confessed to having a "bad week," he seems to understand that he could improve his tone when delivering his frequently divisive opinions. If the Rock The Bells OG is agreeable, he has promised to meet with LL COOL J, who first brought his "dusty" statements to light on Instagram.
“I’m down to talk to LL [COOL J] and I’m gonna talk to —T.I. reached out, too,” he said. “We’re going to have an official talk. But it’s his birthday, so he didn’t want to do too much today.”
When Charlamagne Tha God mentioned Akademiks' aggressive attitude, the former Everyday Struggle host admitted that his thoughts were more difficult to digest when presented in that manner, but he insisted that even if he spoke to LL COOL J in a more polite manner, his "points wouldn't alter."
He added: “The tone changes, even if I was ‘wrong’ about any point, I still stood on it. As a broadcaster, I’ve been learning that a lot.”
