Akademiks Breaks His Chair Fanning Out To Drake Shoutout

Posted by

Akademiks has fashioned a career as a media personality, but he couldn’t hold back his honest response to receiving a shoutout from Drake. During a livestream celebrating the release of Drizzy’s Dark Lane Demo Tapes, Akademiks went into full stan mode when the OVO boss mentioned his name.

“Let’s go!” Akademiks screamed before jumping around wildly.

During the freakout, the co-host of Complex’s Everday Struggle admitted he broke his chair and started pounding on the wall in his room. Drake’s screen froze while Akademiks was fanning out, preventing the world from seeing Drizzy’s real-time reaction to the madness.

Drake surprised fans by releasing Dark Lane Demo Tapes on Friday (May 1). The 14-track project included a few of his recent leaks, songs that popped up on SoundCloud and some brand new tracks.
