Rapper T.I. doesn't play about his "niece" Reginae Carter. The father-of-6 stepped up when an Instagram blogger made a rude remark about Reginae's choices in men.
"Reginae loved hood n-ggas. She loved YFN Lucci. That was her hood n-gga," Akademiks said of her ex-boyfriend who is locked up on a murder charge.
"He had 'thug life' tatted across her chest. I think even Wayne had thug life tatted across his chest. She loved showing up to all type of BET celebrity basketball games. She loved that. That n-gga facing 25 to life. Everything was all good with them until that n-gga caught a RICO. She seen that murder charge on that shit."
First Reginae's mom, Antonia "Toya" Johnson, lashed out at the portly blogger on Instagram:
"@akademiks I can't stand men that do bitch shit," she wrote. "Keep my daughter name out your mouth. Clout chasing is at an all time high. Let her live 23 yr old life. Worry about you and yours. Thanks."
Then T.I. addressed DJ Akademiks in a video on his Instagram page.
"I would love to have a word with Akademiks. I gotta put a call out to him and hopefully, we can communicate our way to a positive resolution. But Reginae under the umbrella, covered, that's our business."
In the caption, T.I. suggested that Akademiks was avoiding his calls and texts.
"[Reginae] was raised by a village who loves and protects her wit all our physical and spiritual abilities... She is MY business. Hence why I'd love to handle the matter privately (which is why I been calling & txtn trying to speak with you."
Akademiks has a history of picking keyboard fights with rappers and gang bangers. He reportedly hides behind bodyguards when he's out and about.
Joe Budden recently called him out for posting an "insensitive" video of rapper PnB Rock discussing a robbery attempt a week before he was killed in another armed robbery.
And LL Cool J chastised DJ Akademiks for calling older Hip-Hop pioneers "dusty".
