He doesn't do it often but DJ Akademiks showed some contrition after calling rap's pioneers "dusty" last week.

“Them old rappers, man. Have you seen any of these old rappers who be like, yo, they’re the foundation of Hip Hop really living good? Them n*ggas be looking really dusty, I kid you not," said Ak on Twitch.

A lot of Hip Hop veterans took him to task afterward, including LL Cool J, MC Shan, Russell Simmons, Spice 1, and Kid Capri.

Ak eventually spoke about the controversy when he stopped by The Breakfast Club on Monday, September 26 and said he'd be willing to talk to LL. 

The former Everyday Struggle host also talked about T.I. trying to reach him after he dissed Lil Wayne's daughter Reginae Carter recently. [Jump to the 13:36 mark]

"I’m down to talk to LL [COOL J] and I’m gonna talk to, T.I. reached out, too,”said Ak. “We’re going to have an official talk. But it’s his birthday, so he didn’t want to do too much today.”

Plus, Ak admitted that he used the wrong tone when giving his opinion on rap's pioneers.

"The tone changes, even if I was wrong about any point, I still stood on it. As a broadcaster, I’ve been learning that a lot.”

Do you think Ak will change his tone or some of his ways going forward?
