Lindsey’s Articles and Interviews


Dive into Lindsey’s articles and interviews during her past career life as a hip-hop journalist who was passionate about telling the stories of artists and public figures with a platform from both an empathetic and unique perspective. After landing an internship with GlobalGrind.com in 2011 during her sophomore year at St. John’s University in Queens, NY, Lindsey wrote her first editorial articles and conducted her first interviews under their Entertainment section. She eventually signed on to their weekend staff as a writer, covering a broader spectrum of topics, including music, hard news and social justice, fashion, sports, health and wellness and more. In 2015, she was promoted to the outlet’s official night editor, managing the overnight digital content for the platform on both the website, as well as their social platforms. After 5 years with Global Grind, Lindsey branched off to other media platforms to cover more niche topics and stories through documentaries and event recaps, as well as investigative reporting, writing and producing video content for KarenCivil.com, Billboard, XXL Magazine and The Source Magazine. From hearing childhood stories from Dave East and his long-time entourage in Ravenswood Houses and driving around Paterson with Fetty Wap, to digging deep into the roots of mental trauma with David Banner, Lindsey has never held back when it comes to sharing stories. Get to know her writingstyle, as well as her growth, as a journalist, content creator and mental health advocate.
