DJ Akademiks has decided to take his grievances with Nicki Minaj to wax. On Thursday (October 3), the Everyday Struggle co-host unleashed “Take Care Babe” as his response to the Instagram DM wrath he and Nicki exchanged last month.
He teased the track a day prior via Instagram, revealing his Lil Ak alter ego was back in effect.
“The return of LIL AK. 10.18.2019. HYPEBEAST OTW,” he wrote in the cation. “We taking all lyrical fades too… might have to drop a diss song too to set the tone out here… lmk who need a lyrical annihilation from LIL AK. The pen is itching.”
The track kicks off with, “Don’t be playing, don’t be playing like you know me/Tell Nicki she can fuck me on her IG,” a clear reference to their IG fight.
He addressed the situation during an episode of Everyday Struggle in September.
“Nicki’s having a breakdown,” Ak said. “She’s at the point where the shoe that nearly connected with her dome that was thrown by Cardi got her out of whack. She’s now threatening bloggers. I though Nicki wanted to have a conversation, or at least bring me to Queen Radio to defend … I thought she was on the brink of calling me ‘cocksucker of the week.’”
Ak revealed Nicki threatened him and accused him of having romantic feelings for Tekashi 6ix9ine.
“last time I was in the studio was 69 he told me he could tell you were really hoping he was gay in real life & that you really tried to touch him in that pool,” her DM read. “The reason you mad is due to me and him being close before he went to jail. I didn’t mean to hang out with your ‘boyfriend in your head.’ I only meant to do a dope song. Please post that part too Alvin and the Chipfunk. You gon be HURT.”
