Maybe they’ve matured and left childish things behind in 2018. Maybe Akademiks’s face isn’t as punchable as it once was before when he made excuses for problematic artists and his friends. Maybe Nadeska is going to get at least some respect from the YouTube comments section. Welp! Let’s watch the latest episode of Everyday Struggle and see.
A brand new season of #EverydayStruggle is back, and for the first episode of the year (Jan. 14) DJ Akademiks, Nadeska and Wayno recap the first annual Everdyay Struggle Awards, which aired in December and handed out trophies to artists like Pusha T, MoneyBagg Yo and Lil Baby. Then the crew dives into Soulja Boy’s claims of having the biggest comeback of 2018 over Tyga. Later in the show, the trio jumped into the first set of album reviews of the year, sharing their thoughts on 21 Savage’s ‘I Am I Was’ and Kodak Black’s ‘Dying to Live,’ before Akademiks went through sales numbers. The EDS crew also discusses the recent ‘Surviving R. Kelly’ doc-series that digs into his past sexual abuse allegations, Lil Uzi Vert reportedly quitting music, the so-called Rae Sremmurd split and Kanye vs. Drake [again].
