Last week, up-and-coming Brooklyn rapper Kay Flock was arrested for allegedly murdering a rival gang member at a barbershop. Apparently, someone got at DJ Akademiks for speaking about the situation.

Responding to a comment posted by rap video director Spike Tarintino, in which he basically blamed Akademiks for shining a light on the shooting and insinuating that he’s the reason police arrested Kay Flock, the controversial media personality clapped back at Spike by calling him a “video camera ni**a for Brooklyn drill artists promoting murder.” Further blaming Spike for the violence behind the New York drill scene, Akademiks added, “You were shooting videos for ni**as who were dissin’ other ni**as who if they saw each other, something was gonna happen. You’re not doing nothing positive, buddy!”

Last week Kay Flock took to his social media page to flaunt a hammer on his waistline before the murder took place. Unfortunately, his outfit matched the exact outfit of the shooter who was caught on camera, and it only took a few seconds for the police to make the connection.

Still, Spike T felt that Akademiks speaking on the matter is the reason Kay Flock got locked up. Obviously, being lowkey called a snitch struck a nerve with Akademiks, and he felt the need to respond to Spike’s slander. Responding like he still had Tekashi 6ix9ine’s pre-snitching days muscle behind him, Akademiks went off on Spike and called him out for adding fuel to the fire that is the violence in the drill rap scene.

Peep the full response below and let us know your thoughts on the situation.
