AceShowbiz - Meek Mill's recent comment didn't sit well with a lot of people, including DJ Akademiks. The hip-hop blogger called the rapper out for comparing the struggles that soldiers have to face in a war to his own struggles living in the streets.
Meek made the comment on Twitter, "One time for the soldiers that really gotta go to war and put ya life on the line … we from the trenches so we know the feeling of having ya life on the line 24/7 not knowing if you gone make it home!" He was clearly trying to send positivity to the soldiers defending the countries across the borders, but the way he said it wasn't received well by Akademiks.
Sharing on Monday, January 6 a video of him giving his two cents on Meek's tweet, Akademiks called it the "most narcissistic and self-indulgent tweet you can probably have about the situation because while we are trying to give some light to the men and women who serve in our armed forces Meek Mill had to say that being in the streets is like being in war."
Even though Akademiks admitted to understanding Meek's point, he said, "But to compare a lot of people who, by the way, let's keep it real and this is the thing I don't like that Meek never mentions, most of the street life is really crime. You can call it survival, but it's usually survival by doing crime... Now that's completely different in my opinion than the men and women who actually offer and volunteer their services and risk their lives and protect others."
"I keep hearing the dudes talk about street codes, yet whenever they get locked up they tell on each other," he continued, before calling Meek a "huge hypocrite" for continuing to glorify the violence of street life while he argues for prison reform.
Meek has yet to respond back.
