Source | Internet suspects Jamie Foxx of shooting DJ Akademiks while raving about podcasters


Jamie Foxx has a bone to pick with a podcaster, and the internet is trying to figure out who the multi-talented actor, comedian and musician is talking about.

Foxx took to his IG Stories yesterday where he posted a message to an unknown podcaster or the podcast community.

“Just because they have a podcast…don’t make it a philosopher,” Foxx wrote in her first IG Story. “Just because they have a loud fucking mouth…don’t make it people’s voices,” he said in the following.

This left a lot of people confused as to who, if anyone, this post was for.

However, someone in the comments section thought the Grammy and Oscar winner was talking about DJ Akademiks, who recently came under fire from the hip hop community for calling the pioneers of the genre “dusty” and of “broken”. Among those who called Ak out on his comments were Scorpio from Grandmaster Flash and The Furious 5, Hen Dogg from The Sugarhill Gang, and even LL Cool J who delivered a nearly 6-minute scathing response to Akademiks.

“It’s come to my attention that a DJ – and I won’t say any names because I don’t think it’s necessary – a DJ basically said that a lot of hip hop pioneers, they’re dusty or how can- they they’re the person who invented Hip Hop if they don’t have a lot of money, or if they don’t represent like they have a lot of dough,” said LL Cool J.

Ak recently replied to LL Cool J and agreed to have a chat with him.

“I feel like the last generation – multiple generations of Hip Hop artists – failed the new generation,” he said. “That’s why I think it’s the blind leading the blind. That’s why I don’t think older artists should criticize or really have a leg to stand on, even though you all call yourselves trailblazers for criticizing the way newer artists evolve.
