Radio Legend Star Joins ‘Everyday Struggle,’ Fans React [VIDEO]
Veteran radio personality Troi “Star” Torain” has joined Complex’s Everyday Struggle, replacing Joe Budden who left from the online show in 2017.
For those who may not know who Star is, he’s a radio legend who held successful radio stints at both Hot 97 and Power 105 in New York with his controversial Star & Buc Wild Morning Show.
Star, who calls himself an “Objective Hater,” made it clear out the gate that he’s not here to “stroke any rapper's cock.”
Within 10 minutes of the show Star was already insulting DJ Akademiks for allegedly dick riding for Drake. They also argued over XXXTentacion, who recently proclaimed "he’s better than 2Pac.”
When news broke that Star was the new host of Everyday Struggle, reactions were mixed. Some thought it was a brilliant move on Complex’s part, while others are not so keen about Star being on the program.
"Complex chose Star from Star & Buc Wild to do “Everyday Struggle”. That’s a Bad Decision Jeans commercial in the making...," tweeted cultural critic Dart Adams.
Another fan wrote, "Everyday Struggle got STAR? Hmmm. Can't lie, that's might be good move. Time will tell."
