DJ Akademiks is not a fan of Houston rapper Megan Thee Stallion — calling her overrated.
MEGAN THEE STALLION ON IG LIVE
“I don’t remember all the quotes. No, that sounds good. One hundred percent, I stand by that. I think Meg Thee Stallion is really overrated as actually an artist. I’ve always thought that. I do think the level that she is discussed on when we’re comparing and talking about only Rap, is a byproduct of a lot of industry ties that she has that has kind of lifted her up to be a super-celebrity, which is cool in that realm, but when we just talk about music, it’s not there,” he told Van Lathan and Rachel Lindsay.
“Again, I’m not saying things without merit. We can’t really talk about no Meg Thee Stallion project that could come close to Pink Friday,” he continued. “We can’t even talk about any top any Meg Thee Stallion verses that would come close to the top ten Nicki verses. So, again, when I see how, in the last year, she has elevated—and keep in mind in 2019, or maybe actually early 2020, I could be wrong on both dates so don’t kill me, she sold like, 27,000. This is the time when they were saying like, ‘Listen.’ It was Hot Girls versus City Girls, they were saying she’s such a huge star and whatever.”
Is he right?
