Its right Akademiks do ask dum ass questions.....case in point Big Krit said he need to get in the gym and gave his trainer a shout.... Then Akademiks asked "you in the gym"

Underrated. The more he evolves he'll get to the top tier of rappers. Winning Grammy's just wait.
Jay Anderson (3 months ago)
Evolves? Krit been there. Yall just fucking sleeping. MOFO was making hella music since 2010. THEY NEED to catch up
PaySo the P.I (4 months ago)
Def Jam don't promote Krit like they should because Krit has intelligence and truth in his music. Major labels promote ignorance and keep the listeners dumbed down. They don't want blacks to empower themselves through knowledge gained from the music.

Krit is just on a whole different level. One of the realest episodes, AK just can’t relate to real rap not that SoundCloud bs

Honestly my favorite 2 people in all of hiphop, Joe budden is the realest voice in the industry and krit is a real dude who's a mastermind in the studio. But I love how krit focuses in on albums I love having a physical copy of shit. I hate how everything is going digital doesn't matter if it's music or a game I want a physical copy of that shit.

S/O to Joe Budden and Nadeska for showing love to BIG KRIT. Da Breakfast Club disappointed me on both of his interviews. You can tell they were not knowledgeable about Krizzle. You guys dd your research and appreciates him as an artist. Thank You! AK start going to bed early B-LoL.

Good on KRIT for not falling for not falling for the bait Joe Budden threw. First discovered him on that Rhythm Roulette which he mentioned in this video. 4eva N a Day reminded me of Nottz Cars sound and I was sold.

Joon Matic TV (5 months ago)
DJ AKADEMIKS is a lame… Gossipin ass nigga You notice when real artists who is the real integrity and real purpose and real intelligence come up there he have nothing to say but when it has to do with the fuck shit you can’t shut him up this is the same guy who a couple of months ago said that 21 Savage project with a good project but I’m not mad at him because he has 1 million subscribers because there are more than 1 million lames who subscribe to the fucking shit so play on… And oh BIGKRIT is on my top three list of new contemporary artists his style is fully grown stylistically and sonically he’s better than Kendrick Lamar and J. Cole and Joey Bada$$ real talk
