Born in Eastwood, New South Wales of Lebanese descent, Nakad grew up in the Ryde area. At the age of sixteen, Nakad left school. After leaving school he became a refrigeration and air-conditioning technician.
While working as a technician, Nakad spent his spare time writing music and constantly gigging in small clubs, on community radio and steadily building his form as a unique Lebanese Australian hip-hop voice.
This street-cred and his poetic turn of phrase, freestyle technique, and audience support culminated in 1997 when he recorded his first album Sleekism. DJ Soup provided Nakad's unique sample-laden music with groovy, funky, hard hitting beats as well as production. Miguel D'Souza, the host of Mothership Connection on 2SER Community Radio collaborated with Sleek and provided additional vocals for Child of the Cedar.
In 2000, Madcap Records reissued Sleekism with altered artwork but with no content alterations.
In 2004, Nakad released his second album Hard For A Rapper, which was produced by Def Wish Cast member Sereck.
In 2007, rumours of a new album surfaced via his MySpace page.
Sleek The Elite is currently working on a new album, which will be produced by FAZ.
In 1998, Nakad landed his first acting role in Paul Fenech's short film Basic Equipment, and then later Fenech's feature film, Somewhere in the Darkness. Nakad and Fenech adapted the Sleek the Elite persona to Fenech's comedy series Pizza in 2000 and 2001.
In 2003, Nakad appeared in the feature film Fat Pizza.
After the release of the movie version of the Pizza series, Nakad left the Pizza team to focus on his rap career, releasing Hard for a Rapper in 2004. Nakad also teamed up with comedian and actor Nick Giannopoulos, appearing in Wog Story. While the show was running in Melbourne, Paul Nakad shared a dressing room with Anh Do. Do was working on the script of the film Footy Legends, and created the role of Walid especially for Nakad.
Nakad appeared as the host of an automotive show called Pop Your Hood (Produced by Templar Film & Television), the series was never picked up for air.
After many years of obscurity, Nakad played the role of Sleek the Elite once again in the 2014 motion picture Fat Pizza vs. Housos.
