Nick Cannon is “wild’n out” a little.
Nick Cannon has made a few more headlines than he may have expected this year, getting embroiled in some drama after Azealia Banks was a guest on Wild’n Out and making some statements that angered Kanye West a few weeks ago. With a late night talk show in the works with Fox, Cannon has been making the rounds to promote his brand and in doing so, he’s made a few more assumptions that will leave you scratching your head.
As a guest on Van Lathan’s Red Pill Podcast, Nick Cannon spoke about Wild’n Out and his activity as a battle rapper. We haven’t heard much from the entertainer on record in the last little while but he’s claiming to still have some major skills. In fact, he’s willing to bet he’s better than 90% of the rappers out today. “I am a better rapper than Will Smith,” started the TV host. He goes on to say he would happily battle Will on any forum he chooses. Then, he makes some pretty crazy claims as he says, “I’m better than 90% of the rappers out there. I freestyle so well that I don’t even do it no more. […] I would call Lil Wayne one of the greatest, Drake one of the greatest, Andre 3000, but it’s like, you put those cats in a battle form going back and forth and they not gonna be able to do it.” Lathan asks if he believes he can out-rap the names he just listed off, which Cannon responds to in the affirmative.
