Coming off the release of his critically-acclaimed album Alfredo, produced entirely by The Alchemist, Gibbs is more in demand than he's ever been before.
And he knows it, too, as he recently jumped on The Bootleg Kev Podcast to flex his status, declaring that his former CTE World label boss Jeezy, who he believes is a "legend," is also "musically irrelevant" at the moment.
Among those who challenged Gibbs' comments was hip-hop personality Akademiks, claiming on Complex's Everyday Struggle show that "if Jeezy is irrelevant, Freddie Gibbs you are absolutely irrelevant as well."
Ak went to say that if Jeezy were to drop an album, he could easily sell 50,000 copies, which he believes gives him relevancy. Meanwhile, he thinks that Gibbs doesn't have any relevancy beyond the "few people" who are checking for him, reflected through his first-week sales of 30,000.
Never one to shy away from a fight, Gibbs shot back with a tweet, writing that he'd "give a bad b*tch 5k" if they admitted to ever having sex with Akademiks.
This move set off a deluge of back and forth disses that continued throughout much of Monday night and Tuesday, with Akademiks' asserting that Gibbs is a "lil n***a" and "can't even compare to me" in terms of money made in the past three years.
"I been working this hard to embarrass one of yall rappers like this for years," he wrote, adding, "If you can't beat a blogger. Keep young Jeezy name out ur mouth."
Gibbs responded, claiming "my son's room bigger than yo house" and asking Ak for "proof that u didn't have oral sex with Tekashi."
When Ak suggested Gibbs pay a visit to Everyday Struggle, he let him know that "Imma squeeze yo titties on camera." In another tweet he wrote, "B*tch u built like a teletubby."
Then, Gibbs took things to another level when he uncovered an old tweet from Ak reading, "Bhad Babbie got mad titties for a 15 year old," which is a troubling statement for obvious reasons.
He also grilled him for allegedly stealing from students while he was an RA at Rutgers.
Caught in the crossfire at one point was hip-hop jeweler Ben Baller, who Akademiks accused of being an "A1 SCAMMER."
Later, Gibbs even went as far as to start selling merch with Akademiks' face plastered on the body of a Teletubby. "Akademiks Is The Police," reads the back of the shirts, which come in black and white.
