Nadeska Alexis was born in Grenada, a small country in the Caribbean, on 15 August 1986, so under the zodiac sign of Leo and holding Grenadian nationality – she is popular for her career of a journalist.
Early life and education
Nadeska is quite secretive when it comes to her early life as she has chosen not to share any details regarding it with the public. She also hasn’t talked about her parents, as she has stated that they do not want to appear in the media.
Nadeska spent her entire childhood in Grenada, living with her parents and their dog – she didn’t have plans of becoming anything when she was young, and while other kids wanted to be footballers and models, Nadeska had no idea what she would want to be when she grew-up. It was only during her high school years that she fell in love with journalism, and aimed for a career in it – she was also in love with music, especially rap, and wanted to work as a hip hop journalist.
After she matriculated from a local high school, she enrolled at Binghamton University, and graduated with a bachelor’s degree in journalism and global culture in 2008.
Career of a journalist
Almost as soon as she got her degree, Nadeska’s career was launched when she began working for AOL Music as their writer in 2009. The job served as a launch pad for her career, as she was soon noticed by the people from MTV News, who asked her to work for them as their editor and writer, which Nadeska gladly accepted.
Thanks to the job for MTV News, Nadeska got an opportunity to meet numerous popular people in the music industry such as Pusha T – she attended many events such as the red carpet BET awards in 2016. Ahe was also helping musicians when able – one case is Schoolboy Q, a rapper from Germany who Nadeska helped release his album entitled “Blank Face L.P” (not before she listened to it, though).
After she was done with MTV News, Nadeska started working for Complex Media where she now serves as a moderator of their “Everyday Struggle” show. The show is focused on discussing numerous topics and happenings plus gossips all which is related to the hip hop industry – it is currently run by DJ Akademiks and Joe Budden. Nadeska is in charge of writing about the popular people from the hip hop industry, about their lifestyles and love affairs and controversies as well, while she also appears on the show and talks about them with DJ Akademiks and Joe Budden – some of the most notable artists they have covered include Rihanna and Nicki Minaj.
Nadeska is not really an actress but has nevertheless appeared in a couple of movies and TV series, including “Biggest Music Moments of 2014” by MTV, “Everyday Struggle” in 2017, and “The After Party” in 2018.
Nadeska came into the spotlight mostly thanks to the “Everyday Struggle” online series, created originally by Complex Media. While you mostly get to see DJ Akademiks and Joe Budden discussing events in hip hop, you also get to see Nadeska who is there to not let them lose their focus, and some guests which they often have – usually rappers who are fighting their way up in the hip hop industry.
Akademiks and Budden are a perfect team, as Budden has more experience and knowledge when it comes to older and more traditional rappers, while Akademiks is keeping up with today’s hip hop scene. The show became a lot more popular after they had Lil Yachty as their guest. Budden did not seem to have liked the rapper and this was very obvious to everyone who was watching the show – he was frustrated and combative, and at one point even said ‘bullshit’ to one of Yachty’s statements. Yachty was actually only invited onto the show because Budden didn’t like his rap style or his actions, and saw his rapping as an offense to hip hop. The two main things discussed during the interview with Lil Yachty were him not knowing whether or not he was signed to a 360 deal, and him saying that Budden is always happy.
