Complex‘s Everyday Struggle show fast became one of the most popular Hip-Hop show we’ve born witness to since the culture’s beginnings. With DJ Akademiks and Joe Budden as hosts of the debate show, and Nadeska as moderator, the show churned out some of Hip-Hop’s most talked about moments of 2017. The chemistry between Budden and Akademiks was undeniable and pulled in hundreds and thousands of viewers a week.
Last month, Joe Budden announced his departure from the show. For fans, it was a shocking moment, and without Budden, the show went from almost 500,000 viewers a show, to less than 50,000.
In this video, Nadeska opens up to Jazzie Belle during her Women In Hip-Hop podcast about the show and speaks candidly about the backlash from fans.
